Evangelist, apologist and writer Stuart McAllister will be the guest preacher at St. Andrew's Church in Mount Pleasant during the church's services at 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. today.

He will deliver a sermon titled "Why Jesus?" in the church's Ministry Center.

Born in Scotland, his faith as a young man led him to join Operation Mobilization in 1978. He worked with the organization for 20 years in Vienna, Austria.

His service took him to Yugoslavia, where he was imprisoned for 40 days for distributing Christian literature. After his release, he continued to preach in communist countries, which resulted in more imprisonments.

In 1998, McAllister joined Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, a global team of speakers with offices throughout the world, as its international director. Today, he serves as regional director for the Americas.
