Doria Stewart, RN, FCN
Director of Spiritual Development
As the new Spiritual Director for the GFCNA, Doria Stewart has a long history of serving others. As a Staff RN at Gwinnett Medical Center for 35 years in medical and surgical areas, Doriavolunteers at the Norcross Cooperative Ministry medical clinic as an FCN and serves at the Glory City Church of Atlanta prayer rooms, her home church. She has volunteered overseas, helping to establish medical clinics in remote areas of Africa, Honduras and Peru.
Doria has a daughter, Kristen, who is an echo technologist, and a granddaughter, Kori, age 11.
Doria received training at the Healing Rooms of Spokane, Washington; Elijah House School of Ministry of Idaho, and Bethel Church’s School of the Supernatural in Redding, California. She has graduated from the Faith Community Nurse Program in 2013.
Doria’s ministry of serving took on a deeper level in 2016 when she lost her son, Jim, and went through a divorce after 34 years of marriage. When Jim was on life support in ICU, Doria said she heard the Lord say to her, “This is a bigger picture than what you can see.” She responded, “Lord I don’t know what that means or begin to know what that looks like, but I trust You.”
In her extraordinary pain, Doria knew that God could empathize with her, since He too, had lost his only Son. Hers has been a journey of healing. “Since God knows us intimately, listens attentively and loves us perfectly, we can rest assured that He will always meet our needs.”
