I grew up in the sunny warmth of Phoenix, AZ. After a short stint in the military, I moved to Little Rock, AR, where I met and married in 1985 the love of my life, Michelle. After several years there of pastoring in a small church, I had an opportunity to move to Chicago and attend Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, completing a Master of Divinity in 2001. It was shortly thereafter that we came here to Faith E. Free in Grand Forks where I have much enjoyed serving as a pastor of adult ministries and spiritual formation. I’ve often felt thankful that the Lord allowed me to gradually transition into the winters of North Dakota, rather than come straight from the Arizona desert!
My wife and I have four boys and two girls, ages seven to twenty. I enjoy a lot of things in life including, engaging in good humor, hanging out with my family, cooking and eating quality foods, being in the outdoors, conversing with friends over coffee, and reading good books.
I love the gospel. And I love helping others come to know and love the gospel, and be awed by the depth and wonder of the Lord, the cross, and his Word. My vision for ministry centers on helping others to be growing in their knowledge of self, in a heart-level walk with God, in authentic community with their fellow believers, and in the development and fruitful use of their gifts.
Pastor Scott is our Pastor of Spiritual Formation. He is involved with helping people of all ages grow in their love and knowledge of God.
