Pastor Scott joined CBC in 2005. He has been studying and teaching the Bible for more than 30 years. He has an extensive background in church leadership and is often called upon to help assist churches who are having leadership problems. Scott is a perpetual student and avid writer. He will be working on his masters degree in theology and is in the process of writing two books based upon his experiences in church leadership. He teaches in our Bible Institute, membership class, small groups, and occasionally for the prayer meeting on Sunday evenings. His passion is discipleship, worship and outreach. He is the primary teacher in the pulpit during the weekend services. Scott has a reputation of being a straight shooter in the Word. "I am blessed to have a great family and many good friends at CBC. Why the Lord would allow me to be involved in His work is beyond me as I'm just a worm saved by His grace".
