About Me

IMG-0514I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. The bluff city is my hometown. I encountered Christ through a life-altering, new birth conversion in January 1997.

I serve on staff at Visible Music College, a music and ministry college with campuses in Memphis, Chicago, Dallas, and Germany. I also spent eight and a half years involved with ministry work in Europe: In the UK from 2003-2006 as Professor of Old Testament for Trinity School of Ministry and in Belgium from 2008-2013 as pastor of Cornerstone International Church.

I hold a B.A. in Communications from the University of Memphis and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary. I’m currently working on a Doctor of Intercultural Studies/Missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary.

My wife, Catherine (Cat), is a beautiful English rose and an artist-photographer. We met in the UK during my 3-year stint there. We have 3 boys, aging from 9 to 2 years old.

My book, Change for the First Time, Again, was released in September 2016 under Wipf & Stock’s imprint, Resource Publications. My newest work, Reflections of Immanuel, is planned for release in the Fall of 2019, also with Wipf & Stock.

  1. Hey Scott,

    I stumbled onto your page after finishing the “Heaven is for Real” book a few minutes ago. Enjoyed your honest review and I tend to have the same feelings as you.

    Also – cool that you are in Belgium. My father came over from Belgium with his parents when he was a teenager many years ago.


  2. Anthony –

    Ik spreek soms nederlands. Ik heb in Belgie al 3 en een halve jaar gewoond, maar mijn nederlands is niet perfect. Ik volg een cursus. Woon jij in Belgie?

  3. Scott, I stumbled upon this video today, and immediately thought of you. I think you will appreciate the journey these two gentlemen are on. I’ll leave you to use Google to find out who these guys are if you are unfamiliar with them.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

  4. Scott,
    I’m an Christian artist from Southern California. I was researching inspiration for my next painting and stumbled-or was guided to your site. I read the article about the little boy with visions of heaven, and I’ve followed the artist Arkain’s journey. I have some of my experiences I’m willing to share that I’ve had since I was little. Dreams mostly. you can find me at http://kelliethomas-walker.com/ or just google my name and different sites I’m on will come up.
    Sincerest Regards,
    Kellie Thomas-Walker

  5. I was invited by this month of August 5-7, 2013 for a Pastoral Conference. I designed a topic: God sovereignty in Pastoral Shepherding and prayed about it. God had lead me to your site as I browse. Thanks for the Great though on “God is a shepherd” and is an overseer for even Christ has a high view of himself as a good shepherd. thanks for it help me expand my thinking and approach on my seminar modules on Pastoral Sheperding. Glory be to God.
