My name is Christopher L. Scott. I’m a pastor and freelance writer. My articles have appeared in Moments For You, The Upper Room, The Blue Ridge Christian News, Pacific Magazine, War Cry, The Lutheran Digest, New Identity Magazine, NET Results, The Christian Journal, Today’s Pastor, The Sun-Gazette Newspaper, and Bible Advocate. In 2020 more than 300,000 copies of my articles have been printed and distributed. Most articles are posted online and available to readers worldwide for free.
I was born in Anchorage, Alaska. We moved in California in 1988 and I grew up in Valley Springs, which is located in beautiful Calaveras County. After graduating from Calaveras High School I accepted a scholarship to play golf at California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock, CA. I attended that school for three years before quitting school to work full-time for the United Way of Stanislaus County in Modesto, CA. It was during this time that I began serving at Enclave Community Church (part of the Evangelical Free Church of America) in Turlock, CA.
During this time I started a nonprofit program called, A Day of Hope. We would collect food and distributed it to families in need of a nice Thanksgiving meal. I led that program for five years in partnership with Enclave Community Church and CSU, Stanislaus.
Then I decided to “go back to school” and finish my bachelor’s degree. I attended Fresno Pacific University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministry and Leadership. Shortly after this, my wife and I moved to Texas where I attended Dallas Theological Seminary. Eventually I graduated with a master’s degree and self-published my thesis titled, How Time-crunched Leaders Develop Potential Leaders.
After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary I accepted a position as the Small Groups Pastor at a church in Exeter, CA. I served there for more than four years. While in Exeter I grew our small group ministry from five groups to twenty groups, started a men’s and women’s ministry, taught a new believer’s class, and was involved in many other ministry areas.
I am currently seeking a position as a lead pastor at a new church. In the meantime I am continuing my freelance writing business and YouTube ministry.
I’m grateful that more than 300,000 copies of my articles were printed in various Christian magazines in 2020. You can find links to those articles on website here. In that same year I also had more than 30,000 video views on my YouTube channel and reached 500 subscribers to my channel.
