Founder, Chief Operations Officer
"Following the rhythms of God's heart for social reform, the broken, the marginalized, and the lost."
Chrystal Stewart is a native of Phoenix, Arizona and is one of the founders of Remnant R.E.A.C.H., LLC, nonprofit organization which serves the community of South Phoenix. She has been sharing in life for over 15 years with Warren Stewart, Jr. who is her husband, pastor, and also the co-founder of Remnant REACH. They parent 3 extraordinary children who fill their hearts with joy each and everyday.
Although raised in a Christian home, for a long time she wrestled to understand her value and worth that Christ had placed on her by simply being made in His image. This lack of knowledge and understanding led her down a dark path of self-destruction and rebellion which caused her to drift even further from God, ultimately leading her towards alcohol and drug abuse.
It was only by the grace of Jesus Christ that Chrystal was rescued from a lifestyle of self-destruction to a life now lived with a surrendered heart to Christ. It was then that she allowed Jesus to dig deep into her heart and soul to begin a journey of repair and restoration from the many unearned heartaches of her past. She accredits her Heavenly Father along with the many mentors, facilitators, friends, family, and some strangers that were sent to cross her path, to propel her into her now found passion to see others walking in the knowledge and understanding of the unconditional relentless love of God.
Chrystal is recognized for her problem solving as well as motivated leadership skills. She developed a three component mentoring program that empowers then equips youth and young adults to becoming their BEST selves, leading them to becoming responsible adults. Chrystal lives for connecting with people and hearing their stories in hopes of finding the common thread that she believes connects us all. Some may not know that she enjoys songwriting and singing which she finds to be healing for herself and others.
Chrystal has made it her mission to follow the rhythms of God's heart for social reform, the broken, the marginalized, and the lost. Everyday she is challenged with encouraging others to allow their hearts to be broken for those who endure unearned suffering in our communities, the state, this country, and around the world.
