This month, Dr. Alan Meenan, founder and president of The Word Is Out joined the podcast. He is the author of numerous articles, books and study guides. He teaches extensively throughout Asia, Africa and America. Besides being born in Belfast Northern Ireland, he has lived in Scotland and East Africa and the U.S. He has served the Church in the United States for more than 40 years, in Virginia, Texas and California – most notably as Senior Pastor of the famed Hollywood Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles.
Dr. Meenan holds five academic degrees from the Queen’s University of Belfast (B.A. Hons), Asbury Theological Seminary (M.Div. & Th.M.) and a Ph.D. from Edinburgh University. In today’s conversation, we, of course, talk about how he came to know Jesus, his call to ministry, how he came to the Seminary, his work as a pastor, and how The Word Is Out came to be.
