About The Stanton’s –
International Evangelists and supporters of churches in Australia, Fiji, the Philippines and the United States, the Stanton’shave ministered in various parts of the world for most of their ministry. Their United States base is in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Stanton’s have pioneered, established and pastored several churches prior to their international ministry. Doug hasbuilt a number of church buildings from the ground up. He also built and established a Christian School, RehabilitationCenter, and Bible College.
Doug Stanton was powerfully converted to Christ in 1978, at the age of 22. Divinely healed from a disease in his back andmade whole from a serious head injury, Doug found that the God of his salvation was also “the Lord that healeth thee.” God’s awesome love, Doug realized, was to be experienced, not just studied.
After many years of successful ministry, Doug experienced “burn-out” and thought his ministry was over. In an effort to find healing, he took leave from his church for three months. He and the family went to USA for a break. It was here that God tricked Doug into doing a meeting in up-state New York. That meeting broke out into a revival that changed the Stantons’ lives forever. Doug went from burn-out to doing up to 10 meetings per week. He returned to his home church healed and restored as a person and minister.
Excited by his new-found freedom, Doug handed his church over, packed the family up, and headed for USA. They had oneway tickets, 10 bags of belongings, and a desire to touch deeper places in God.
In 1995, Doug founded ‘Doug Stanton Ministries International’. Their first major Midwest revival was in a church in Minnesota, where God visited in a powerful way with meetings that continued daily for five months. Thousands of people from nearly 300 churches in the area were touched, saved, healed, restored and given a greater passion for Jesus.
From this time on, the Lord used the Stanton’s to stir revival fires in many parts of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. This work covered several years, pausing only for a few days to get set-up in the next venue. During this time, the Stanton’s had a serious car accident that changed their future.
Since then, they have ministered revival wherever they go. Doug and Karen have frequently traveled with their two daughters, Krystal and Sharna, and their son Daniel. The whole family loves being on the road, and have regarded traveling time as a very special season in their lives — ministering together 24/7. Doug often says, “For this reasons was I born.”
After nearly a decade of ministry in the US, God called the Stanton’s back to Australia with a burden to reach their homeland. They served as Associate Pastors of a church in south Brisbane that grew to over 1,000 people. Then God opened a door to plant The Northside Fireplace on the north side of the city, which they served as pastors with a revival flavor from 2002 until the spring of 2006.
Moving to America that spring, the Stanton’s ministered to churches in New York, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, before committing to a major revival effort in Blaine, MN. Following a 6-month involvement there, they worked with several area churches until finding their current home at the new DSMI Center in Crystal, MN.
