Death of Stuart Powell

Mark McCulley, our pastor in Denver North, and his wife Joanne are sad to announce the death of Joanne’s father, Stuart Powell, at the age of 86 after several heart attacks. Stuart had a long and varied career, including serving in the Royal Air Force in Africa, graduating from Ambassador College Bricket Wood, serving as an elder and pastor in England and Scandinavia, and owning several businesses before and after his ministerial service. His wife Joyce passed away in 2011, and he had been cared for by Joanne, who flew from America several times a year.

Stuart was a bibliophile and lifelong learner, often studying deeply into topics of interest, giving talks on angels and the RAF for various charities, as well as hundreds of sermons. He was well known for his love for his Savior and his personal warmth and sense of humor. He had been attending and serving in Skipton Baptist Church (SBC) the last ten years as his health made it impossible to attend the nearest GCI congregation in England, and he was much loved there, but his love for the people he had known and served for so long never died. SBC is honoring Stuart by assisting us with arrangements for an online funeral for Stuart on Saturday, May 23.

  1. We are so sorry to hear of Stuart’s death. He and I graduated together from Ambassador College in Bricket Wood. He was always a gracious gentleman. May our wonderful God comfort you and your family.

  2. Dear Joanne and Mark,

    We are saddened to hear about Stuart‘s passing away. I always much enjoyed talking to him whenever I had the chance. He lived a long and fruitful life leaving behind many wonderful memories. We now look ahead to the joy of meeting again all our loved ones. In my „mind‘s eye“ I often try to picture what the „Great Resurrection“ will be like. Hold on to that promise.

    You are in our prayers,
    Santiago and Elke

  3. Condolences to Joanne and the family of Mr. Powell from the Christian Family Fellowship congregation of Jacksonville, Fl.

  4. What a kind and gracious man. He always had a smile and a good word. Condolences to Joanne and Mark.

  5. Like losing an old friend because Stuart did a lot of the “hands on” training for us at ACUK in the early 70s. He was the one who took us out visiting members and PMs in the wee small hours. Seemingly always cheerful and upbeat but had some stories about his days in the RAF. Real love for Joanne which came out on visits. Glad we connected again when he would visit USA in 200s.
