Visiting Scholars

Stan Lennard


Stan Lennard is a general surgeon who has enjoyed both an academic and private practice career over a span of 30 years. His doctor of medicine was awarded in 1968 at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. His surgical residency training was received there and at the University of Washington where he completed chief surgical residency in 1976. He served a four-year fellowship in surgical immunology between 1972 and 1976 with the Department of Surgery at the University of Cincinnati, where he defended his thesis for a doctor of science degree in 1976. He joined the Department of Surgery academic faculty at the University of Washington in 1977 and subspecialized in surgical infectious disease. Stan was active in basic science and clinical research, teaching, and patient care during that tenure. He entered full-time private practice in 1987 and retired in 2001.

Stan discovered Reasons to Believe in 1987 when he heard a presentation by Hugh Ross in Bellevue, Washington. Since that encounter, he has been blessed to serve the ministry in multiple capacities—including as an online instructor for eleven years. Stan founded the Seattle RTB Chapter and assisted in the establishment of a number of additional chapters in the US and abroad. He initiated research through the ministry in the late 1990s, investigating the interaction between the Holy Spirit and the human mind and spirit, focusing on the neural synapse as the model for study. This research has resulted in several articles that have been posted on the RTB website and has culminated in a book after 18 years of research.

Stan served on the board of directors of RTB for four and a half years, four of which he served as its chairman. During this time the ministry made significant advances in outreach and financial strength, and today we see its continued growth worldwide that now includes the Visiting Scholar Program.

Stan is now fully retired and looks forward to resuming an art hobby in several media. He is married with two grown children.
