Stuart BladeAssociate Pastor of Small Groups


Jackie and I have been married since 2008 and have four children (Brody, Olivia, Hope, and Caleb). We moved to Illinois in 2012 and started attending Eastview at that time. Before coming on staff, I volunteered in high school ministry, and have felt God calling me to ministry during that time. I love, Jesus, my family, doing projects and the Cubs! In my own life, I have experienced God’s love and redeeming grace. For that reason, one of my favorite Bible verses is, “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11)
