Powered by 28+ years of next-generation leadership experience, Stuart serves as Director of Student Leadership and Leadership Networking for Orange (ReThink Group) and also leads INFLUNSR, an organization whose mission is to fuel the next generation of leaders worth following.
Combining a unique balance of self-deprecating, anecdotal humor, iconoclastic insight and powerful application, Stuart speaks to thousands of junior high, high school and college students, student pastors, parents, leaders, and coaches every year through camps, retreats, and special events.
Stuart has co-authored three books: the award-winning The Seven Checkpoints: Seven Principles Every Teenager Needs to Know and MAX Q: Developing Students of Influence with Andy Stanley, and the leadership edition of Wired: For a Life of Worship with Louie Giglio.
Stuart speaks regularly at BigStuf Camps, the Orange Conference, and the Orange Tour. In his spare time (insert sarcasm here), he serves as a volunteer high school varsity girls basketball coach for the Buford High School Lady Wolves, who have recorded six GHSA state championships, two state runner-up finishes, nine Final Four appearances and one Elite Eight appearance in the last ten years.
Stuart and his beautiful wife Kellee reside north of Atlanta and are the parents of three very active children: son Grant (a 2017 Duke University graduate and football letterman), daughter Chandler (a junior basketball player at Rollins College), and daughter Cameron (a high school senior and 2019 University of Florida soccer commit). Their home is a locker room.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
With 3200 participants at the YMCA of the Rockies, Stuart did a fantastic job of connecting and challenging our high school students and adults as we moved through the week. His understanding and portrayal of scripture in a relevant delivery that youth and adults could understand and embrace are incredible. He is able to interject humor along with Truth in a unique delivery. Stuart also spoke to our Leadership Seminar participants and set us up for 3 days of challenge and growth. He has a gift of connection with students and leaders at various stages of their faith development. This is the second time we have used Stuart as our Main Speaker for this event and will definitely consider him again in the future.

I have had Stuart Hall speak to our athletes at Vanderbilt University on several occasions and he never disappoints! He brings energy, passion, and truth in a relevant way for our student-athletes. Stuart is able to deliver the truth of God’s Word in a way that convicts and challenges. So thankful for his willingness to answer the call and speak into the hearts and lives of our athletes!
- Lance Brown, Chaplain, Vanderbilt University Athletics
I have known Stuart Hall for many years and have booked him on several occasions. Stuart is professional and considerate to the needs of the organization he is speaking for. He learns about his audience and thoroughly researches his topics. Stuart has worked closely with our planning teams to understand our mission and strategies, and thus speaks with knowledge and confidence.
Stuart has many speaking gifts, from humor to reach high school audience, to serious poignant messages to reach some of my political colleagues. I would strongly recommend Stuart Hall as an event speaker, you will not be disappointed!
- Walt Rogers. Iowa State Representative, Education Committee Chairman and Director of Programming, Rocky Mountain High, Synod of the Heartland
Stuart Hall is one of the most dynamic communicators I've ever been around. He has an incredible ability to take God's word and apply its truth to daily life. With years of experience in working with young adults and students of every age, he connects with the next generation like few I know. Passionate. Funny. Relational. Inspiring. These are just a few words that describe Stuart and his ministry. He is a leader to leaders and influences in a positive way whatever he is involved in.
- Jarrett Stephens, Teaching Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Plano, Texas
I have known Stuart Hall for nearly 20 years and I have had him come and speak in a variety of context. From Mobile Al speaking to hundreds of students to the Suburbs of Western New York to the intercity of Buffalo New York. Through his humor and storytelling he has been able to not only connect in all of those places but has had immeasurable impact on the lives of students and adults! Stuart is a student of culture and is always spot on in helping his audience navigate culture and the Gospel and where to “step next.” I give Stuart the highest recommendation to my friends in ministry no matter the context!
- Brek Cockrell, Lead Pastor, Renovation Church, Buffalo, New York
As music director and member of the BigSuf Camps family, I get a front row seat to see the connection our speakers make on and off stage with students. From the moment he opens his mouth, no one makes that connection quite like Stuart Hall. He presents himself in a culturally and socially relevant way that reaches EVERY student in the room and his passion for delivering the Gospel is undeniable.
- Chris Cauley, Worship Leader, NBC’s The Voice, Tyler Perry’s ”Laugh to Keep From Crying" tour, Michael Jackson tribute show "Man in the Mirror” tour
I have known Stuart Hall for many years and consider him a mentor and friend. Rarely in my forty-five years in education have I observed anyone with the rare giftedness he has in communicating and connecting with other people. In speaking at various events here over the years with our students, parents, or coaches, Stuart just captivates the room with his message and delivery. He has the perfect blend of being able to communicate deep spiritual truths, share relatable life stories, and then the powerful oratory skills to make his message come alive and become so life-changing for the listener. Above all, Stuart Hall “walks the talk”. His greatest testimony is the life he leads as a Godly family man and as a friend to all.
- Dexter Wood, Athletic Director, Buford High School, Buford, GA and Georgia Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame
We’ve been lucky to have Stuart Hall as a part of BigStuf for many years. Every time he speaks to both the students and leaders at camp, they walk away challenged to think about life in a different way. Stuart has a way of speaking that encourages others to see life through the right perspective—the perspective of truth. But more than that, Stuart has a heart for each and every student that crosses his path. He speaks to them as if they were his own sons and daughters and that heart is what motivates his message.
