Dr. Charles Stanley’s 40-year Career Was Multifaceted
We’re confident that Dr. Stanley would agree with the sage who once remarked that if you’ve been given many gifts, it’s only appropriate to give them to the world.
Now 90 years old, Dr. Stanley was widely recognized as one of the most influential spiritual leaders worldwide. However, he had also successfully used his skills in other fields.
Dr. Stanley’s efforts in religious broadcasting and writing various religious, literary works, such as The Gift of Jesus: Meditations for Christmas, published in October 2022, helped him amass a sizable following.
Dr. Stanley’s radio show, In Touch, was broadcast on 458 stations and shortwave. Two hundred four terrestrial and seven satellite stations carried In Touch Ministries.
Everyone here agrees that Dr. Stanley’s life’s work and religious leadership have profoundly impacted countless people and will continue to do so.
Becky Stanley, Dr. Stanley’s daughter, and Andy Stanley, pastor of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga., are his surviving family members.
Our hearts go out to Dr. Charles Stanley’s family, church, and faithful followers.
