Stan and Jacqui

Stan Meyer is happy to announce that he and Jacqui Hops are engaged to be married! Wherein lies a story …

Stan Meyer serves in the Los Angeles office of Jews for Jesus and has served with us since 1985. His late wife, Holly Meyer, ministered with Stan for 21 years and sadly passed away in 2011. Jacqui Hops, a Jewish believer in Jesus, born and raised in Los Angeles, knew the Meyers from the 1990s when she sang with them on our "Jews for Jesus Singers" music team! After Holly died, Jacqui was moved to pray for Stan and his daughter, Carrie, regularly. One Sunday, Stan invited Jacqui to join him at a church where he was scheduled to preach. Jacqui shared her story; then the two sang. Something clicked and they began dating! Jacqui adores Carrie and Carrie really thinks Jacqui is awesome. Stan and Jacqui have set their wedding date for August 2014. They would like you to pray that their wedding will be a witness to Jacqui’s as yet unbelieving family.
