Lloyd and Nancy Stanford

Belize

Service Area: International

Ministry Focus

Lloyd’s ministry involves planting churches, training national leaders, strengthening established churches, and encouraging a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among the Conservative Baptist churches in Belize.

He provides one-on-one leadership training for individuals, hosts church growth workshops, and helps lead in churches that don’t have pastors. He also hosts short-term missions groups and now works with the expansion of missions in Belize and the English-speaking ministries in Central America.

Lloyd says, “I see my responsibility as equipping a solid base of leadership as the ministry of Belize changes from being led by missionaries to being directed by nationals. Pray for us as we undertake this great challenge.”

Faith Story

Lloyd was born in Belize and came to know Christ as Savior and Lord at age 19. Soon after his conversion he became active in ministry, working with Missions Door’ missionary NT Dellinger in a variety of ministries, including pastoral work, evangelism, and camping.

Lloyd received Bible training through the Belize Extension Seminary, and has taken additional courses at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and Haggai Leadership Institute in Singapore. He continues to refresh himself by attending seminars, workshops, the Billy Graham School of Evangelism and Lausanne Conference for Leaders.

Lloyd has been a part of the ministry at Queen Street Baptist Church in Belize City, where he has served as pastor since 1973. Lloyd has also served as the General Director of the Conservative Baptist Fellowship of Belize since 1989.

(Lloyd received a new direction from the Lord to be totally involved in Missions. In 2013 he informed the church of giving up the senior leadership of the Church and is now expanding the Mission work in Belize and the English- speaking Ministry of Central America.)

Nancy was saved at age 15 and dedicated her life to the Lord’s service two years later. She received Bible training at Jamaica Bible School, after returning home she served as a local missionary with NT Dellinger in Bible studies, VBS and camping ministries. Nancy remains faithful to her commitment to the Lord over the years as she serves with her husband in added ministries of Women, Sunday school, Couples and Marriage retreats.
