My name is Victor R. Scott. I am the eldest son of a Baptist pastor. My dad is a retired Army chaplain. After he retired he planted a church in Columbus, GA where he and my mom serve as the Lead Pastors. My parents have been married for over thirty years. I have two brothers and one sister. My wife, Miranda, and I have been married since 2003. We met in high school and dated through our college years at Georgia Southern University. After graduating from Georgia Southern University earning a degree in Sociology, Victor finally completed a Master of Divinity from Luther Rice University in 2011. We have two beautiful daughters, “Ellie” and “Addie,” born on the same day, four years apart.
I am of Puerto Rican descent, but I was born in Georgia and raised in the States. I have lived in several other states and I have to say that I enjoy Georgia the most. I could do without the gnats, but other than that this is a great part of the country to live in.
I have been in ministry since I was nineteen and have learned a lot about myself and God. I hope that the learning never ends. I made a profession of faith when I was around eight or nine years old. I really don’t remember. What I do remember is the reason. My best friend called me and told me that he had accepted Jesus. Afterwards I asked my mom what that meant and I proceeded to accept Jesus too. I am not trying to trivialize this. This is the just the way I remember it.
My senior year of high school, I was seventeen and I rededicated my life to Christ and felt prompted to pursue a life of full time ministry. Two years later I would serve my first church, a small Free Will Baptist church in Jenkins County, GA. The congregation consisted of my future wife and me (both nineteen), and seven members all over seventy years of age. That was a wonderful time for me. Many of the convictions that I now hold were forged in that small country church.
I am a flawed and broken individual. All that I am and all that I could ever hope to be is due to God’s undeserved love for me. I pray that I might continue to live my life in a way that is worthy of the Gospel and person of Jesus Christ.
I am currently serving as the Youth Pastor of a United Methodist Church in the South Georgia Annual Conference.
