Rev. Leland Stewart

A Tribute To Our Founder

In March 2018, our founder, Rev. Leland Stewart passed away from natural causes, just days after celebrating his 90th birthday.
Leland’s vision provides the foundation for UDWC, and as we go forward without him at the helm, we will endeavor to keep his spirit alive — forever paying homage to his legacy.
