Stu has served as Haven of Rest Ministries Executive Director/CEO since January 2016. He previously served as Haven of Rest COO from 2014-15. A clear call from God and many experiences along the way led him to serve here. Stu has a passion for the mission of Haven of Rest to “rescue, restore and release those facing life dominating problems”. God’s redemption and restoration in his own life has given him a heart of compassion for those we serve. One of his favorite Bible verses is “Whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord, and not to men.” (Colossians 3:23)
Prior to joining The Haven, he served as Director of a Christian Retreat Center, as a missionary to Brazil, in the local church, and in various business administration roles. He has an MBA from North Greenville University, an MA from Southeastern Seminary and a BA from UNC-Charlotte. Stu and his wife Liz have been happily married since 1989 and have two wonderful daughters and one son-in-law.
