Stu Weber Dr. Stu Weber graduated from Wheaton College in 1967 and holds advanced degrees from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. A U.S. Army veteran, he was awarded three bronze stars as a Green Beret in Vietnam. It was there, in the trauma and uncertainty of war, that Stu committed himself to a lifetime of vocational ministry “for Christ and His Kingdom.” Stu Weber is a pastor who loves his family, his country, and Christ’s church. He also has a passion to help men become all God intends them to be.
Thirty years ago, Stu and Linda joined a small group of friends in founding Good Shepherd Community Church, today one of Oregon’s larger church families, where Stu has served for 32 years as the Senior Pastor. Together, Stu and Linda have spoken at Family Life marriage and parenting conferences across the United States, and Stu serves on the governing boards of several regional, national, and international ministry organizations. He has also spoken for Promise Keepers, Men at the Cross, and Iron Sharpens Iron. He also maintains a consistent ministry to the U.S. Military community both in the United States and overseas.
Stu is the best-selling author of several “Gold Medallion finalist” books. The 20-year bestseller Tender Warrior provides a powerful biblical blueprint for mature manhood in a time and culture that is awash in confusion about gender issues.
Stu and Linda live just outside Portland, Oregon. High school sweethearts, they have been married for 50 years, have raised three grown sons, and are now greatly enjoying grandparenting seven grandsons and three granddaughters, so far.
The Weber family enjoys outdoor activities–hunting, camping, hiking, and competitive sports–and love the beautiful high alpine country of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in their home state.
