     BOLIVAR, Mo. (BP)--Jack Stanton, known as "Mr. Evangelism" to many Southern Baptists, died July 14 in Citizens Memorial Healthcare Facility, Bolivar, Mo., after a long-term illness. He was 82.
      Stanton served 15 years as associate director of evangelism at the former Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board) before his 22-year tenure at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar as associate professor of evangelism and director of the International Institute of Evangelism and the Jim Mellers Evangelism and Conference Center. After his 1997 retirement, the university named the evangelism center in his honor and created the Jack Stanton Chair of Evangelism. He had also taught evangelism at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City.
