  • I was born November 22, 1984 in Odessa, TX and raised in a small West Texas oil field town called Crane. Growing up, God graced me with the best family I could have ever wanted. Though we were not rich and I was not given a free ride through my adolescence, my parents loved me and did their best to give me everything I needed and a lot of stuff that wasn’t a necessity. Above all, they raised me to love God and trust in Him.

    Despite their love for God, my parents’ love for the church was crushed by the time I was four years old due to immaturity in some of their fellow believers. (I am not placing blame, but just saying that stuff happens). We left church before I turned 4 years old; shortly after my brother was born, and I was raised without a church family helping me along.

    During this separation from the church, I tried to unite with other believers in F.C.A., fifth quarters, and a few random Sunday invites from friends. Through all that time I never doubted my love for and trust in Christ that my family had instilled in me, but all the talk of “getting saved” confused me.

    At 16, I decided it was time to get serious about my faith and plugged in to church because it was obviously something lacking in my life. I contacted the new pastor at the church of my childhood and asked to go to church camp. It was at that camp that I understood the message of the Gospel and what salvation really means according to Romans 10:9-10, and I was made certain that my faith in Christ was real and personal.

    Since that day, I have known that Jesus loves me and will not let me go, and as the years roll by, I continually see the effects of His goodness and grace transforming my life little by little. I was “baptized with the Holy Spirit” while in Bible College, and now I spend my time preaching the Gospel to the lost, training fellow believers to reach their neighbor and the world, and praying for healing and deliverance to anyone in need.

    As I long for the day of final perfection, I have the joy and honor of inviting others into this same journey with Jesus that I am on. What a privilege!

    “To God be the glory.”

  • “I have been in the ministry for thirty-four years as both Pastor and Missionary and I have never witnessed as great a demonstration of God’s mighty power as I did in (Uganda)…” on a 2017 short-term trip.

  • From McCauley Austin, Pastor of Friendswood Baptist Church, Friendswood, TX:

    Scott is a genuine follower of Christ and His Kingdom. I've had the privilege of sharing time with Scott through our formative years in ministry, and I glean so much from his diligent seeking and study. Anytime Scott has an opportunity to speak at our church, we are eager to hear from him. He brings great insights and practical, usable teaching. Moreover, Scott has a true heart to share the gospel, train believers and to equip them in their walk with our Lord.

  • From Jan Ross, President, Heart of God International Ministries and Scott's former boss:

    “I’ve had the opportunity to observe (Scott) in ministry settings, to sit under his teaching, and witness how he interacts with people of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds. In short, I’m impressed with his leadership and competence as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ…He has a way of inspiring those around him in their walk with Christ.”

  • From Cory Ward, Former Pastor at Redemption Church (then called Grace Baptist Church):

    During my time with Scott, he has proven himself to be a gifted teacher, a great organizer, and a willing minister of the Gospel. I consider myself to be privileged to have been able to work with him and to form the friendship that we share. Scott is one of the biggest Gospel influences in my life...Since I have known Scott, he has had a passion for world missions and evangelism. At the same time, he is passionate about preaching and teaching the Word of God. He has a big heart for all people. He is a man of great faith in an even bigger God.
