Scott has been playing piano and making music most of his life, having been a part of traveling singing groups and jazz bands throughout his high school and college years in Ohio and Kentucky. After graduating from Asbury College with a journalism degree, he pursued writing and editing for a few years before returning to his first love, earning a Master of Music degree in vocal performance and conducting from the University of South Dakota. Performing in musicals and opera along the way, he has also been an adjudicator for vocal competitions in South Dakota, a choir director with several churches, a vocal coach for a summer stock theater, and a piano and voice teacher for over twenty years.
Drawn to Lancaster County to act in several shows at Sight and Sound’s Millennium Theater in Strasburg, Scott loved the area so much he decided to stay. For the last eighteen years he has served as the worship pastor and the director of worship arts at Ephrata First United Methodist Church. In his free time he enjoys bicycling, outdoorsy stuff, soaking up movies, and doing totally cool things with his wife, Lisa, and three children. Scott is excited to be a part of the Cavod family, impacting Lancaster County for the Lord through the arts.
