About Scott
  • Education: I am a graduate of Faith Evangelical Lutheran Seminary (a.k.a. Faith Seminary) in Tacoma, Washington. Master of Divinity.
  • Experience: I have served in various church posistions since 1992 and as an ordained pastor since June 2007. I have serve as Elder, Associate Pastor and Pastor in churches located in Okinawa, Japan; San Antonio, Texas; Navarre, Florida; Bordentown, New Jersey; Kaiserslautern, Germany; Ramstein Air Base, Germany and Kabul, Afghanistan.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I appreciate any constructive critisism and welcome comments. I would also love to hear if I’ve been able to help your ministry in some small way.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Anything that grabs peoples attention, even better if they can laugh and learn at the same time.
  • Family: I have a wife and a daughter.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My mother is very proud. I’m sure my dad would be as well, but he has passed to be with the Lord.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is an inspiration by being both my biggest fan and my biggest critic.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach what the passages say to yourself. Generally, you won’t talk down to people and the words will come from the heart rather than canned speach. Use illustrations, props, or other attention getting tools. It’s these tools that people will remember long afterwards.
  • Books that have had an impact: Case for Christ - Beautiful description of a logical approach to discovering who Jesus was.
  • Hobbies: I have a full time job as an officer in the U.S. Air Force. My church duties are a passion that occupy most of my free time. But, I do enjoy some video games and watching movies when I’m able to fit them in.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Love God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind. But, if you follow that advice, you’ll do more than just sit there; you’ll actually DO something to show that love - serve your fellow men, serve the Lord, study his scriptures.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Cared about people. Loved his family. Had a heart for God.

  • One Died So That Many Could Live

    Contributed on Mar 15, 2015

    The central message of John 3:16 can be compared to the donation of life giving organs. The donation requires a life, one life sacrificed can provide for several lives, there is no way to say thank-you for such a gift. John 3:16 is very similar.

    Introduction This morning, we look at the shortest possible description of the whole Gospel. John 3:16 is a marvelous passage beloved by so many. Luther referred to it as the Gospel, within the Gospel, or, the Gospel within a nutshell. And such it is. This short verse of less than thirty words more

    We are all youth. As youth, we encounter the culture of society that continues to redefine sin as something more acceptable to secular eyes. We need to keep God's Word close to remain true to His wisdom.
