Hey guys, Scott here... I'm resisting the temptation to put a "bio" here - with all of the hype... So instead, let me share a little about who I am and what my ministry is all about.

I've been a singer/songwriter full time for several years, and I'm now on the staff of a great church as a worship pastor. My wife Julie and I have two awesome kids (Emily and Josiah), and we live out in the country with a bunch of cows, goats, dogs, cats, sheep, horses, etc. I'm a city guy, so this is a stretch for me, but for my wife, there's something about taking care of animals that just feeds her soul. So... my next project is building a chicken coop. Hmmm...

I've served all over the US and around the world in places like Ghana, Tanzania and especially in China. I'm excited about my new partnership with Mission Of Mercy, an international child-sponsorship ministry.

Anyway, in the "hype" department, my version of "I Love You Lord" went to #1 nationwide on Christian radio a few years ago, and that has been a great blessing. In 2010 my duet with Jaime Thietten was a Top 20 hit ("I See You" - a cover of the Rich Mullins classic) and last year "I Will Stand (The Solid Rock)" was also in the Top 20. You may have also heard the songs "Bring Glory", "Great Is The Lord", "Like Incense", "Remember." "Show Them Jesus" or "Talk About Love".

I love leading worship and performing concerts. Sometimes that's a full band thing, sometimes an acoustic due or trio. I'd love to come to your church (or conference or event) and serve with you. [+]
