About the Founder of Sandlot Ministries
Reverend Stan Lovins II is an inspired International Evangelist with a burning passion to see God’s healing power and salvation arise in the heart and soul of today’s people with the love of Jesus Christ!
As an inner-city youth in Indianapolis, IN, USA, Stan grew up with five sisters in a home that faced many challenges of brokenness, abuse, poverty and despair. With no known hope for a future, Stan developed a passion in his heart to try and overcome his challenges by becoming a professional baseball player. After graduating from College, Stan’s dream of playing professional baseball came true. His professional baseball career consisted of three years of minor league baseball as a shortstop in the Great Central (A), Frontier (A) and Prairie (AA) Leagues, as well as Winter Ball with the Houston Astros.
Due to injuries sustained during a life changing car accident in January 1997, Stan cried out to God for truth. On December 1, 1997, Stan received the truth of Jesus Christ in his heart as Lord and Savior. Now with his life centered on the victory of Jesus Christ, he began testifying and using his many years of experience in baseball to instruct students, parents and coaches on how to live a powerful victorious life in Christ.
