I met Pastor Stan when I first joined Christ Among Neighbors. I found him so helpful and caring when talking with people who came to us for help. He was one of the founders of C.A.N. and was there to greet people and listen to them in their time of need. We offer our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Bro. Rexroth was an amazing person, example of Christ and friend of our family. I will always remember his nickname for me.... while others jokingly called me “Tara the Terrible” he always called me “Terrific Tara”. He was always a positive and loving man and I am so grateful I had the privilege of knowing him my whole life. To my sweet friends, I’m praying God beings you comfort and peace! I’m so thankful his faith has been made sight but my heart is heavy for you all as you grieve his absence on earth. We love you all so much!

To God be the glory, the passing away of our beloved Daddy, brother and mission expeditionist Pastor Stanley Jacob Rexroth came to us as a surprise BUT WE KNOW THAT GOD HAS HIS Way of doing things.
This great Missionary was the pioneer of several mission trips to Nigeria and his last mission trip to Nigeria was in 2005.
During this mission trips,he explored most of the hinterlands with rough roads but thank God in all he and his Evangelical team were equal to the task thereby proving their call to the mission field.
The memories of his work will ever remain fresh in our hearts.
Our greatest joy is that he is resting on the bosom of the Lord and the memories of his labor is evergreen.
God's comfort to our dear Mummy Martha Rexroth, the church of God world Missionary USA, and the entire church members of Shippensburg.
Scripted by Pastor Christian Ogbuka (leader Nigeria).
