Stuart became our Rector in February of 2011. Stuart is from Mobile, Alabama. Stuart asked Crissy to marry him almost fifteen years ago. She said yes in the top of a pine tree overlooking Weeks Bay at Camp Beckwith. Now, they have been married for fourteen 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 this time every year; other interests include hiking, swimming, playing a lil' soccer and telling tall tales with their children. Stuart and Crissy cook supper listening to Midlake or Sandra McCracken 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 a curate at Saint James’ Church, Fairhope, Alabama.
