Let me tell you about Pastor Al Stewart - his passion is Jesus and people.  Pastor Al has a heart for people - he doesn't forget a name or their story.  He loves to share the gospel. You can usually find him on Saturday mornings knocking on doors, genuinely wanting to get to know the people of greater Lynchburg. Friday nights you may find him sitting in the bleachers at a local High School football game cheering on the home team. He's not afraid to have the hard conversations, and help others with their very real and personal problems. 


Pastor Al is a die-hard Cowboys, Red Sox & Notre Dame Football fan. He's a drummer, songwriter, and back in the day played with a few bands.  But most important, he's a husband, father, and loyal friend. 


Pastor Al & Dawn's Quote To Live By:

"Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can." - Rev. John Wesley
