Stewart McWilliams
& Family

Senior Pastor
Stewart moved to Colorado Springs 23 years ago to start Fellowship of the Rockies.  Stewart grew up in the Detroit area, moving to Arlington, Texas to attend Arlington Baptist College.  After completing his Undergraduate Degree, he moved to West Texas, began his ministry career, and met his wife Kristi.  They have two grown children: Kami who has been a nurse for a couple of years, and Kaleb who graduated from college in May. Along the way, Stewart picked up a Masters and a Doctorate of Educational Ministry Degree.  Besides leading Fellowship, he loves to see the Kingdom of God expand in our community & around the world - especially in the Dominican Republic. Stewart primarily teaches at our 8th Street Campus, and in his free time enjoys golfing and skiing.

Kyle moved to Colorado Springs when he was 10 years old and began
attending Fellowship of the Rockies as a Senior in high school. He studied youth ministry at Colorado Christian University and served as a summer youth intern at Fellowship after his sophomore year. Right after college, Kyle married his high school sweetheart, Erica, and began his ministry career at a church in Lafayette, CO. He spent 10 years as the youth pastor there, and all three of his kids, Teagan, Weston, and Jace, were born there in Lafayette. God called Kyle back to his home church in August of 2019, and he served Fellowship in a number of various roles before becoming the Fountain Campus Pastor. Outside of church, Kyle loves spending time with his family, going on hikes, and playing basketball.
