Capitol Conversations Episode

Stuart Hall and his wife Kellee were, like many of us in early March, wondering what the future held as the coronavirus spread across the globe and our country shutdown. Stuart would soon contract COVID19 and battle the novel disease for weeks in the ICU. The Hall’s story is one of relentless faith and a growing courage as they walked through an unimaginably dark valley. They came out on the other side thanks to a heroic team of doctors and nurses and the love and prayers of their church community. 

Their personal story matters deeply for the pandemic politics on the road ahead.

This episode is sponsored by The Good Book Company, publisher of Beautifully Distinct: Conversations with Friends on Faith, Life, and Culture, edited by Trillia Newbell.

Guest Biography

Stuart Hall is a lifelong student minister. He serves as Director of Student Leadership and Leadership Networking for Orange (ReThink Group) and also leads INFLUNSR, an organization whose mission is to fuel the next generation of leaders worth following. Stuart speaks to thousands of junior high, high school and college students, as well as parents and student pastors every year through camps and events.

Kellee Hall is founder and director of The Echo Group, a full service management group in itinerant communicators. Borrowing from the famous line from the cinematic epic Gladiator, The Echo Group believes what we do, what we say, how we say it, and how we live and love “echoes in eternity.”

The Halls reside north of Atlanta and are the parents of three young adult children: son Grant (a 2017 Duke University graduate and football letterman), daughter Chandler (a senior basketball player at Rollins College), and daughter Cameron (a freshman soccer player at the University of Florida).
