At the end of Stuart Briscoe’s days, the renowned Wisconsin pastor, speaker and author said he hoped someone would look back on his life and say:
“Stuart Briscoe served God’s purpose in his own generation, and now he has fallen asleep and is ready to meet his Lord” — a reference to the biblical figure of David in Acts 13:36.
“I’d be thrilled if that was the conclusion,” he told the Journal Sentinel in 2020.
Wednesday, August 3, 2022, was Briscoe’s time to meet his Lord. The 91-year-old Oconomowoc resident and former Elmbrook senior pastor died “of natural causes unexpectedly,” he and his wife Jill’s media ministry, Telling the Truth with Stuart and Jill Briscoe, shared on their Facebook page Thursday.
