Rev. Dr. Glen Stewart has been Regional Minister and President of the Tennessee Region since February 1994. He was Associate Regional Minister of the Christian Church of Greater Kansas City before coming to Tennessee.
He is a graduate of the University of Toledo (B.A., 1967) and Vanderbilt University Divinity School (M.Div., 1974; and Doctor of Ministry, 1975). He was ordained into the Christian Ministry on June 2, 1974. He has served pastorates in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. He and his wife, Joyce, have one son, John-Paul.
Dr. Stewart has a deep passion for the people of Haiti and the church’s presence and witness in that nation. For many years he has organized and led mission trips to Haiti in coordination with Global Ministries and the National Spiritual Council of Churches of Haiti (CONASPEH). When the January 12, 2010 earthquake devastated the capital city of Port-au-Prince, he was there with other leaders of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Tennessee.
The following College of Missions Paper is a testimony of Dr. Stewart’s experience in Port-au-Prince that evening, as he shared it in his April 18, 2010 sermon at the Disciples General Board meeting in Indianapolis.
