Pastors Dustan & Darlene Stanley were married in 2007 and left for a fourteen month around the world missionary journey in 2008. That defined much of their life, and since they have travelled to 35 nations teaching the word of God and preaching the Gospel.
During their missionary journeys, they produced a reality based missions TV show called The Revolutionary Life, which was aired in five nations and laid the groundwork for Hasten Nations, a ministry dedicated to seeing the gospel preached in the unreached world, making disciples of all nations, and saving at-risk children.
Hasten Church was birthed after Pastor Dustan had a strong encounter with the Lord, followed by a dream, and then a confirming word from a father in the faith. In every instance, the emphasis has been on the presence of God transforming lives. They long to see a church birthed where people can encounter God in every service so they can learn to encounter God every day. This is how lives are so transformed that our neighbors and the nations are touched with the Gospel!
Dustan & Darlene have two children, Daniel and Daisy, and live in their beloved hometown, Chattanooga, TN.
