Pastor Scott loves working with people and communities -- bringing faith to life. He is passionate about Church being a safe and welcoming place for all, and is delighted that Advent is a thriving community hub for people of many faiths (and none) and all walks of life. He holds a B.A. in English from the University of Washington, and an M.Div from Wartburg Theological Seminary. Ordained in 1991, he has served congregations in Nebraska and Texas, Campus Ministry at Texas Lutheran College and the University of Washington, and as lead pastor at Advent since October 2013. Outside of the congregation, you're likely to find him fly fishing, sailing, and spending time with family. He and his wife Katie are avid cyclists, and both have been bicycle commuters all their lives. If you ask him about his kids, grandkids, or dog, chances are good he'll show you a picture or two!
