In 1980 as a high school junior, Scott felt a call from God to minister to teens. Originally Scott believed this burden to minister to teens would see fulfillment in Christian school education, but after teaching three years in a Christian school and becoming a sponsor in the youth ministry of a local church, it was obvious God wanted Scott to minister to teens in a local church setting. In 1990, God led Scott and his wife Dori to Countryside where they began serving teens. Scott’s desire was to see young people conformed to the image of Christ so that they would make a difference in their world for Him. Through twenty years of youth ministry God used Scott and Dori in incredible ways at Countryside and He continued to develop them as well. In 2011 Scott transitioned to a different shepherding role which now includes counseling and pastoral care for families; a role which God prepared him for throughout his years of faithful service in the church. Scott and Dori have four wonderful children, two great son-in-laws, two precious granddaughters, and three awesome grandsons. Scott enjoys spending time with his family, going on hikes with the love of his life, camping, traveling, and watching most sporting events.
