Our Team


Scott K. Lowry

Lead Pastor

Scott Lowry, our Lead Pastor, was introduced to the church as a "bus kid." As a college freshman, God placed a clear call to preach on his heart and opened many doors of opportunity even as a "student preacher." During one of these services, Terry, a high school senior, committed her life to Christ. Neither had any idea that in 2016 they would celebrate forty-four years of marriage.

Pastor Scott passionately preaches and teaches the Bible. He commonly uses humor, video resources and audience interaction to help listeners deal with the real issues of life. His heart's desire is to be a disciple of Christ who "makes disciples who make disciples."

Pastor Scott has served in many areas of leadership in both church and community. He has ministered in foster care, youth athletics and community chaplaincy. He has spoken at numerous camps, retreats, revivals, seminars, and banquets. He has "planted" two churches personally, and "coached" young pastors and assisted in starting and restarting seven others churches.

He graduated from Mid-America Nazarene University in 1975. He received his Master's in Ministry degree from Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

He and Terry have three adult children, six grandchildren, and a '67 Mustang!
