Author, Pastor Stuart Briscoe Passes Away at 91


Author and megachurch pastor Stuart Briscoe passed away on Wednesday from natural causes. He was 91.

The Briscoe family confirmed the news in a statement on Thursday, writing, “It is with deep sadness we inform you that Stuart Briscoe died of natural causes unexpectedly during the evening of August 3. For many of you, he was preacher, pastor, mentor or friend. To us, he was ‘Stu’, ‘Dad’ and ‘Poppa’ and we already miss him achingly.”

The family added that information regarding a memorial service for Briscoe would be announced at a later date.

Briscoe was born on November 11, 1930, in Millom, Cumbria, England. After leaving his career in banking, Briscoe decided to pursue international ministry through the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship of Torchbearers. By the 1960s, Briscoe was a youth minister and a popular conference speaker in the United States. In 1971, he became the senior past of Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin. According to Briscoe’s ministry, Telling the Truth, Elmbrook eventually grew to be the largest evangelical church in the state.

Briscoe’s sermons soon became so popular that he began recording them using a reel-to-reel tape recorder and selling them. With the money from the tape sales, Briscoe was able to purchase local radio time, which launched the Telling the Truth radio program.

In the 1990s, the ministry expanded its reach overseas, airing on London’s Premier Christian Radio station.

Today, Telling the Truth airs online and on SiriusXM in the United States.

Briscoe served as Elmbrooks senior pastor for 30 years before moving on to concentrate on reaching out to pastors, missionaries and church leaders as a Minister-at-Large, with his wife, Jill.

Briscoe also wrote over 40 books throughout his career, including Brave Enough to Follow, A Countercultural Life, and He’s Still on the Throne.

Briscoe is survived by his wife, their three adult children and their 13 grandchildren.
