Before coming to serve at FBC as Senior Pastor, Scott served as an Executive and Teaching Pastor in the Atlanta, GA area for the past 11 years. He has been serving in ministry since 1989, and is a graduate of The Baptist College of Florida and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Scott became senior pastor of First Baptist Church in November of 2014. He and his wife are both Florida natives.  He was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL. and Karen is from Starke.  All three of their children were born in Gainesville, FL. Pastor Scott and his wife Karen, along with their three children Gracie, Walker and Jackson reside in Starke. Scott and his family enjoy doing life together. Whether it’s going to their boys baseball games, watching their favorite college football rivals (Gators and Dawgs), shopping at the mall, or hanging out at the beach and eating at their favorite restaurant, O’Steens. They’re excited about what God is doing in and through their church family at FBC Starke. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact him at
