Stan & Connie Beasley

Southeast Hub Mobilizers

Stan and Connie met over 30 years ago as Connie prepared to join a construction team to finish a family camp in the French Alps. At that time, Stan was finishing his M.A. in education. A year later, they married.

Stan coached and taught high school students both in Greenville, South Carolina, and in France at The Michelin International School. After eight years in the classroom, he moved into industry, working in quality and training roles for German and French companies for 21 years. He retired early in July 2020 to pursue ministry opportunities with MTW.

Connie worked for an international architectural firm doing mechanical design in Bermuda. She also has experience in customer service and in language training.

The Beasleys are mobilizers for MTW’s Southeast Hub, focusing on a culture of missions among presbyteries, churches, seminaries, and colleges. They will be developing new missionaries, strengthening relationships both domestically and internationally, and encouraging local church congregations. Stan and Connie are based in South Carolina.

DIVERSITY IN MISSIONS

At MTW, we believe that sending more diverse missionaries better reflects the image of God and helps build more effective ministry as people of color bring their voices and gospel stories to those waiting to hear. If you would like more info about how the MTW Diversifi initiative and RADD (Reformed And Diverse Delegates) can help you in your mission, please contact one of our diversity mobilizers.
