Stuart was a director of Christians in Sport (1990-2006) and has served in the leadership of the International Sports Coalition and the European Christian Sports Union. The work of Verite sport has three main aspects:
Supporting professionals as they seek to represent Christ in the world of professional sport.
Adding 10% to international sports ministry projects. There are currently projects in Argentina, Togo, Congo, Ukraine and Pakistan.
Producing resources on sport and Christianity.
Stuart is a prolific writer, having written 10 books on aspects of sport and faith, which have been translated into several languages. He also writes a weekly sports email and contributes sport and faith articles to The-Times-on-line. Much of this is downloadable from the Verite Sport website.
