Alan Meenan, President

Dr. Alan J. Meenan, Ph.D., D.D., is the author of the teaching series The Word Is Out, and founder of the organization known by the same name.  Born in Belfast Northern Ireland, he came to the United States as a seminary student to attend Asbury Theological Seminary; he has also studied at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and Yale.  He devoted 40 years to preaching and teaching God’s Word before retiring to devote more time to this ministry, which he founded using Bible study tools he developed and used effectively during his pastoral ministry.  Motivated by Psalm 96:3 (“declare God’s glory among the nations”), Dr. Meenan protests, “I’m just a pastor/teacher, I can’t do anything else.”  He spends his time these days working primarily in the US and Africa, living 6 months each year in California and 6 months in Kenya.
