About Our Guest: Born in Scotland, Stuart McAllister saw his life changed by Christ at the early age of twenty. A hunger to learn more and deepen his understanding of the faith led him to join Operation Mobilization in 1978. He worked with the organization for 20 years in Vienna, Austria, and his service took him to Yugoslavia, where he was imprisoned for forty days for distributing Christian literature. Upon his release, he continued to preach in Communist countries, which resulted in more imprisonments.
With a rich history of service, Stuart has acted as general secretary of the European Evangelical Alliance (1992-1998) and been involved with the European Lausanne Committee. He developed a mobilization movement called Love Europe, which sent several thousand team members across Europe with the message of the Christian faith. Stuart also founded the European Roundtable, bringing together a diverse group of ministries and interests that collaborated to create Hope for Europe.
Stuart is a frequent contributor to A Slice of Infinity, RZIM’s daily reading on issues of apologetics and philosophy, Just Thinking, the ministry’s quarterly journal, and Engage, a magazine published quarterly by RZIM Educational Trust. He has also contributed chapters to the books Beyond Opinion (Thomas Nelson, 2007) and Global Missiology for the 21st Century (World Evangelical Fellowship, 2000). Stuart joined Ravi Zacharias International Ministries in 1998 as the International Director and today serves as Regional Director for the Americas. With a heavy travel schedule that takes him all over the globe, Stuart speaks in churches, universities, and other forums with the same passion he first found as a new follower of Christ. Stuart has lectured at Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, New York, where he was awarded a Doctor of Divinity. Additionally, he has been a featured speaker several times at the European Leadership Forum.
