(RMG), one of the largest privately owned direct response marketing
companies in the U.S.

In 1999 Stuart founded The Evangelism

their joy and excitement by sharing their faith with confidence and
gentleness. Stuart has always had a heart for helping
Christians enjoy the adventure of seeing God at work in their lives
and through effective communication of the Good News of Jesus
Stuart came to Christ in 1971 while attending
Virginia Tech. While there, he was very involved with InterVarsity
Christian Fellowship. After college, his first job was with
InterVarsity Press traveling across America promoting the IV Press
Stuart has two sons (Stuart IV and Stephen). Stuart IV is out on his own and in the film industry. Stephen is a junior in high school. Stuart is a long-time church member of West End Presbyterian Church where he is an ordained deacon, leader, supporter and teacher. In his spare time, Stuart is an avid golfer and has had the joy of playing many of the great courses in America.
