Lead Pastor of Worship and Strategic Ministries
Senior Leadership Team
On staff at Bent Tree since 2004
Scott oversees the ministries that send Bent Tree’s message beyond the walls of our physical campuses: Worship and Arts at our Carrollton (broadcast) campus, Bent Tree’s Communications Team, the Bent Tree Network and Pastoral Launching Pad, experience Life Media (including our live stream ministry and Telling the Truth partnership), and Global Missions.
I met my wife, Vonda, at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago, where both of us served for 14 years. We were engaged in center field at the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa, and married in 1991. Our two daughters came 11 and 15 years later, respectively, and are a tremendous joy to us.
I'm a huge Pixar fan. My favorite Pixar film is Ratatouille, but my favorite sequence in all of cinema is the first 10 minutes of Up. I got a chance to spend some time with Ronnie Del Carmen, the Pixar artist responsible for that sequence, and it was an amazing experience!
I love watching God use Bent Tree to spread the good news of Christ’s Life, both here and around the world. My dream for Bent Tree is that we would be a community of storytellers, enamored with the greatest story of all - the love story of Jesus Christ and the people he came to bring to Life.
