World Partners, Kansas City MO

Stan and his wife, Valli, have served full-time with World Partners since 1978. Their experience includes 10 years in Sierra Leone, West Africa among the Yalunka People; 3 years at the US Center as Administrative Director for the Adopt-a-People Clearinghouse; 3 years mobilizing churches to adopt unreached people groups; 2 years training students at Bethel College, Mishawaka, IN; 4 years coaching workers in Africa and the Middle East; and 12 years in Kansas City, MO, reaching out to refugees with the love of Christ.


We love Jesus with all our heart and share about that love with refugees who arrive in Kansas City. By developing deep and loving relationships, we bring the Good News of Jesus into their lives and help them discover how to enter the Kingdom of God. Our home is very open to others and it is here that refugees often see for the first time what a marriage relationship looks like when following Jesus.

We also meet twice a month with over 20 men and women in our home, discipling them to love and follow Jesus and share that love with others. Because our work needs to maintain a measure of security, please feel free to contact us personally with your questions.
