Scott serves Westside as Teaching & Next Steps Pastor, bringing his passion to inspire people to join God in transforming the world. His 25+ years of strategic leadership, creative Bible teaching and empowerment of others have led thousands of people to find their place in the story of God.

Scott has BA in Greek from Bryan College and ThM in Pastoral Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary. Before coming to Westside, Scott served as Campus Pastor, Teaching Pastor and Lead Pastor in churches in churches in Texas and Arizona. Now he calls Kansas home and the people of Westside, family.

He sees the people of Westside as one of the keys to community transformation and believes that our influence can be the tipping point in seeing KC flourish. If you ask Scott, he’ll say, “Westside’s best days are ahead of us as we continue to love, become like and share Jesus!”

Scott and Donita have been married since 1991, and have two grown children, Morgan and Noah. Scott loves spicy food, sushi, classic rock, golf, hanging out with neighbors and the beach. (Still searching for one in Kansas.)

2 Corinthians 4:7 is Scott’s reminder of who gets the credit for all things. “We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not us.”
