HELLO, I’M STU…I’m the Campus Pastor in Arcade.  My main role is to equip and care for the people of CrossTown Arcade. Here’s a little more about me…

BASIC STUFF: I was raised in Delevan, NY where I attended Pioneer Central School.  I went to Genesee Community College where I received my registered nursing degree.  I had been attending the Franklinville First Baptist Church where I met my wife Amy who received her Elementary Education degree from Houghton College.  I worked for Bertrand Chaffee Hospital while she worked as a substitute teacher and camp director at Camp JYC.  We married in October of 1996 and continued to minister at FBC and Camp JYC.

HOBBIES: I enjoy camping with my family and hunting when I can find the time.  I like classic cars and dream of the day when one will be sitting in my garage.  I enjoy watching my kids, Dylan & Nicole, in their various sports and other activities.

FAVORITE PLACES: Anywhere my wife is.
