Stuart became our Rector in February of 2011. Stuart is from Mobile, Alabama. Stuart asked Crissy to marry him almost seventeen years ago. She said yes in the top of a pine tree overlooking Weeks Bay at Camp Beckwith. Now, they have been married for sixteen years, and they are the parents of four children: Lucy, Samuel, Mac, and Jane Ellen. Before our Lord called Stuart to be Saint Richard's fourth Rector, he served as the Associate Rector for Family Ministry at Saint Martin's, Houston.
Suart is a graduate from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia and Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. His devotion to the SEC is highlighted about this time every year; other interests include hiking, swimming, running, and telling tall tales with their children. Stuart and Crissy cook supper listening to the Oh Hellos or St. Paul & the Broken Bones more often than not. Before Seminary, Stuart planted Church of the Apostles, Daphne, Alabama with his Vicar on behalf of the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast. After Seminary, Stuart served Saint James’ Church, Fairhope, Alabama as Curate.
