Scott grew up in Columbus, Ohio. He spent most of his childhood & early adult life outside of the church, but thanks to the persistent love of his youth minister, he eventually gave his life to the Lord and made a complete 180 turn—deciding to pursue a career in ministry.
He met his wife, Holly while attending Kentucky Christian University, where he received a degree in Bible and Preaching. Scott also has a Masters Degree in New Testament Studies from Johnson University. He has served in full-time ministry as a youth minister, a college & singles pastor, and, now, a lead pastor.
In the spring of 2008, Scott began to feel God’s unexpected call to establish a new church for people who don’t typically feel comfortable in traditional churches. Along with a launch team of about 25 people, Scott planted Catalyst Church in October of 2009.
In his free time, Scott enjoys martial arts (he has a second degree black belt and has participated in two amateur MMA competitions), softball, riding his motorcycle, and playing Barbies with his two daughters…ok, maybe enjoy isn’t the right word for that one.
