Justin Talbott Ministry Update 2021

November 24th, 2021: Ministry Update

My mother, Jayne Frances Talbott, passed away on January 11th, 2022. I’ve placed her memorial service here as a tribute to her love, perseverance, and faith during my years of addiction. The way she considered others above herself, and her strength of character, we not of this world.


To bring about positive change in someone’s life you must get to know them, walk with them, and be willing to help carry their burdens. Those burdens must then be carried to the Lord. Performing this service requires great personal sacrifice, but it is what my mother was put here on earth to do. And she was a firm believer in the work of Stauros and of John Burghauser.


John Burghauser performed my mother’s memorial service. No one else was considered. What I didn’t realize, and would see, was that this service would be done at great cost to himself. And that is exactly why she would have requested him.

“My parents entrusted Stauros, and John Burghauser, to assist them during my years of heroin addiction. My parents advocated for the Stauros ethos immediately, and the reason was simple: the beliefs and approach adopted by Stauros aligned with what my parents knew to be true. Freedom comes from the Lord alone. 

In September of 2001 I flew to N. Ireland to live in Ballyards Castle, headquarters of the Stauros Foundation. For a number of years after returning home I would occasionally struggle with disobedience, and the consequences came fast and hard. But a transformation had begun in 2001, and my time spent in Ireland provides me with encouragement and strength to this very day.

I am alive today because there were people who never gave up on me. My family, John Burghauser, and those within Stauros reflected the love of Christ during times of darkness and despair. The Lord worked through them, and so many others, to effect powerful change in my life. Please keep me in your prayers as I endeavor to do the same.”
