"That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His Death." Philippians 3:10
Scott was saved in 1985 at the age of nine after receiving Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. His mother led him to Christ. His calling to ministry began and continues to be driven by his desire to serve God's people by the preaching and teaching of His Word and by serving others.
He was a 1994 graduate of Austin High School in Decatur, Alabama. In 2009, he graduated from Athens State University with a bachelor degree in Religious Studies. Scott is furthering his education by attending Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky as a candidate for a Master of Divinity in Biblical and Theological Studies. He is a licensed Minister and gifted teacher.
Scott started in the Pastoral Internship Program at Decatur Baptist in June 2014. Through this internship, he has had the opportunity to lead and serve in multiple areas of the church such as the college ministry, preaching, pastoral care, discipling, evangelism, marketing, social media and church administration. He now serves as the Pastoral Assistant to the Senior Pastor.
In August of 2016, Scott was tasked with strengthening the Church's financial spending efficiency in day to day operations and the integration of new technology into our campus facilities. In doing so, he has led our church in the design and implementation of many of our recent updates in the areas of Network Infrastructure, Audio/Video, Exterior Landscape, LED lighting upgrades, and LED Digital Signage.
