Stuart Rempel

Founder and Chairman of the Board
Stuart has a bachelor's degree in business administration and economics. After spending 10 years with a family manufacturing business in Saskatchewan, he worked in fund development for a major Christian charity. There, he gained invaluable experience with the administrative and accounting needs of missions.

In 2002, he launched the Great Commission Foundation, initially to provide estate planning for Christians. However, individuals started approaching Stuart with an entirely different need. They were operating charitable projects and ministries but were unable to receive donors. Stuart responded to this need through GCF, as the mandate and working relationships with potential missions came into focus. He saw the Great Commission Foundation grow substantially over the next 15 years, and he continued to develop GCF to provide individuals and organizations a place where they get the Administrative and Government Compliance expertise needed to thrive in ministry.

In 2017, Stuart stepped out of the role of GCF President, passing the mantle of leadership to Chad Bruneski, who had served as Executive Vice President at GCF for two years. Stuart remains actively involved with the Great Commission Foundation as Chairman of the Board, Senior Advisor, and partner in Growth and Development.
