Stafford grew up in Mechanicsville, VA and then went to college at Virginia Tech.  While studying at Virginia Tech, Stafford decided to start a Young Life Capernaum club in a nearby town (Salem, VA) with a bunch of other college friends.  They reached out and pursued many kids with disabilities while they were students at Virginia Tech.

Stafford graduated from Virginia Tech in May 2009 with a bachelors degree in Finance.  He went on Young Life staff in Salem, VA and then moved to Virginia Beach to be on Young Life staff in August 2012.

Stafford married his wife, Kerry, in August 2011.  They have a son, Nolan, who was born in June 2017.  They are also expecting another child in September 2019.  They love that they get the opportunity to live life with many different students in Virginia Beach and love getting the chance to talk about their lives and about the person of Jesus!
