Dr. John Steward

John Steward PhD. has been a theology teacher, agricultural advisor, community development trainer, free-lance writer and speaker, and a mentor of peacebuilders. He has lived in Australia, Indonesia and Rwanda, and has trained aid workers from 50 countries.

His passion for change grew out of life experiences that challenged his beliefs and attitudes. John seeks to inspire us through his conviction that to find peace in our world we must first be at peace in ourselves. Rwandans have taught him about the hard work to find peace after personal grief and profound community disintegration.

When the problems of our world get him down John meditates, enjoys Victoria, visits his grandchildren in South Gippsland and volunteers in the Cranbourne Australian gardens.
