Hey, I’m Scott and have been the Pastor here at First United Methodist Church of Ormond Beach since July 2013. My wife Kris and I have three sons: Caleb, a middle school history teacher in the Orlando area, married to Megan, Joshua is working out west, and Jacob is at Florida State and of course Scout, the family dog!
Formerly I was the Director of Youth and Education First UMC of Ft. Pierce, Associate Pastor Indian River City UMC, and the Founding Pastor of Community of Faith UMC.
I hope all the above sounds corporate enough for those of you looking for that! Now here is the stuff you need to know: I am passionate about Florida State football and Duke basketball! I love BBQ and will travel miles for it! I love all things Celtic (not the basketball team, but Ireland.)
I would rather be outside than inside, and I love the beauty of the Everglades. I collect crucifixes and Florida landscape art. The Highwaymen are my favorite artists and I love photos of the Everglades. I read a lot and my favorite book is “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Most of the fiction I read is ancient historical fiction, but I’m also a big fan of Tim Dorsey, Vince Flynn, Mark Greaney, and David Baldacci.
My iTunes is filled with U2, Van Halen, Mumford and Sons, and everything in between. I love the TV shows “Big Bang Theory” and “The Last Kingdom” and my all-time favorite shows are “24” and “Cheers.” Of course, all this is subject to change depending on the day, but right now those are a few of my favorite things.
