Stewart Harms | Chair & Interim Treasurer | Colleyville, TX
Stewart is retired from the U.S. Department of Justice. He served eight years in lay leadership at the church he and his wife currently attend.  His positions included a term as Chairman of the Board of Elders and a term as President of the Board of Directors.  He currently sits on the Board for Mission Administration for the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, Texas District.  During his time spent in lay leadership, Stewart witnessed and experienced firsthand the intense pressures and stressors to which Christian leaders and staff can be subjected in the course of carrying out ministry goals.

“It was through these experiences that I came to embrace the need for organizations such as Breathe Life to ensure the spiritual and emotional health of those who have dedicated their lives to sharing Christ’s message with others.”

After 27 years in the federal government, Deb became a professional volunteer and fell in love with the world of Christian non-profits.
“Since 2013, I have seen such brokenness in God’s people, and especially among those called to lead. My heart is for leaders who were never supposed to bear the weight alone and I’m committed to the vision and mission of Breathe Life to be a place of rest, healing and play for those leaders.”
