Scott came to First Baptist Church as the pastor in August 2011. Before coming here, he served as the pastor at Lyons Road Baptist Church in Garland, Texas and also at Sycamore Baptist Church in Decatur, Texas.
Scott is married to Gina and they have been blessed with three sons. Jonathan and his wife Erika live in South Carolina where Jonathan serves as a percussionist in the United States Marine Band. However, Scott and Gina still remain very busy at home with Brandon and Zachary, who are both in elementary school.
Scott has earned a B.A. in Biblical Studies and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Criswell College in Dallas, Texas. He also spent an additional two years in Ph.D. studies at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas where his emphasis was Old Testament studies, and he is now pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree in Expository Preaching from Southwestern.
Scott's passion is the preaching of God's Word and he believes that the greatest priority of a pastor is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12). His conviction continues to be that only as people know God through His Word will they become passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission
