About Charles Stone
"With 30 years of healthy ministry behind him, Charles understands the challenges pastors and churches face today. If something is keeping you or your church stuck, he can help you navigate out. I highly recommend Charles to train your team, guide you toward greater vision clarity, or speak at your event."
Lance Witt, former executive pastor, Saddleback Church
Author of Replenish
"In my 25 years working in book publishing, Charles is in that "top 5%" of authors whose words on paper are as equally compelling as when delivered live to an audience."
Kyle Duncan, book editor for 5 Ministry Killers
I’ve been in ministry for 30 years, 20 of those as a senior pastor, and I started StoneWell Ministries to help pastors and churches get unstuck. See a personal video message from me about StoneWell below.
I’ve served in churches over 1,000 in associate roles and most recently led a great church of 1,000 in the Chicago suburbs as senior pastor. I also planted a church, raised three kids, and wrote two books. I’m now writing a third on pastors addicted to approval.
I coach pastors, consult with churches, speak, train, and write to help Christian leaders achieve their fullest kingdom potential.
I believe leaders must think well to lead well, so I integrate neuroleadership insight into the art of Christian leadership. Check out this cool animated video that explains neuroleadership below.
I typically post two to three blogs a week on leadership, church ministry, neuroscience application to leadership, and soul and family care for the Christian leader. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe below.
