Pastor Stu has been in ministry since the 1980’s and has been a beloved pastor at Grace Reformed Baptist Church since 1992.  He and his wife Beth have three grown children who are married and walking in the Lord.  He has eight grandchildren and 2 more on the way.  Pastor Johnston has spoken at various conferences around the country and recently presented several lectures on parenting at GRBC.  We were so encouraged by these lessons that we wanted to bring his wise insights and Biblical instruction to a larger group.  He is a local treasure and a blessing to all who sit under his ministry!
