Prior to his pastoral work, Stuart was the director of the John Hancock Center for Youth and Family Ministry in the School of Religion at La Sierra University.
Stuart is the author of six books, the latest two published by Pacfic Press: 1) Chosen By Grace, a careful study of end time events through the lens of a grace orientation and 2) Searching for the God of Grace, a history of the development of the doctrine of salvation by grace alone, from ancient times through the Biblical period, into the history of the early church, the middle ages, the Reformation, and through to its development in Adventist fundamental beliefs.
Stuart and his wife, Karen (Lindgren) '63, who first dated as juniors at Monterey Bay Academy, have been married for 46 years. They have a daughter and two sons plus six grandchildren.
