Our Director

Brian Stewart

Thank you for visiting the ACTION Cuba blog. I appreciate your interest in missions, and specifically in what the Lord is doing in Cuba. ACTION Cuba is an outreach of Action International Ministries (ACTION).

My name is Brian Stewart and I had the privilege of founding ACTION Cuba in the year 2000 and currently serve as the Director of our team. Since then I have made 47 trips there and I am constantly in contact with my colleagues through email and phone calls. The Lord has blessed the work so that I now oversee numerous projects that are administered by our growing team.

Our goal is to assist the Cuban church to deepen its knowledge of God and strengthen its practical ministries. ACTION’s motto is “Knowing God, taking action.” The specifics of how we “take action” in Cuba can be found under the Ministries tab of this site.

Our vision is strongly interdenominational. Our two primary contacts and legal representatives in Cuba are the Iglesia Cristiana Pentecostal de Cuba and the Convención Bautista de Cuba Oriental. We have good friends in other denominations as well, such as Lutheran, Pinos Nuevos, Iglesia de Dios Ortodoxa, Iglesia de Dios en Cuba, Gracia Soberana, Evangélica Libre, Biblia Abierta, and others.

In 2010 we also began working with the national pastors’ organization, CIMPEC. Additionally, we assist the leadership of UGECU, a nationwide ministry to college students.

Our ministries are carried out with the approval of both the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury (OFAC) and the Oficina de Atención a Asuntos Religiosos (OAAR). I am grateful that in spite of political differences between the US and Cuba, both governments make allowances so that those of us who serve Christ may pursue our calling to walk alongside and serve the evangelical churches in Cuba.

On a personal note, I am a graduate of the University of Washington, with a degree in Spanish. My wife and I have been married for 27 years and have four children.
