Scott began a new consulting practice called FaithServ in May 2017 with the mission to Increase Kingdom impact through exceptional services and inspirational partnerships. He has served in non-profit and ministry leadership for three decades. Scott believes his God-given gifts and experiences are to be used for God’s work and seeks to serve ministries and churches alike, helping to increase their impact wherever possible.
Scott’s experience in executive leadership allows him to help ministries maximize their impact through services like: organizational assessments, strategic alignment, fractional C-Suite offerings, and change management. Scott’s passion is to help ministries remove the “business distractions” thereby returning time and money to be redeployed to ministry initiatives.
Scott’s career began in 1982 providing consulting services for several small entrepreneurial style technology companies. In 1987, he joined United Way of Los Angeles where he provided key leadership in their MIS department by means of planning, deploying and managing their first PC networks throughout the enterprise.
Scott joined the management team at Insight for Living (IFL) in 1991, ultimately serving as the MIS Director. Scott left IFL in October 1999 and moved to Texas to join KMA interactive, a subsidiary of the KMA Companies, as VP of Strategic Services. He was named Chief Operating Officer soon thereafter; and was later asked to fill the role of Chief Information Officer for all of the KMA Companies.
Upon leaving the KMA family in 2001, he began consulting with ministries because of a passion to see ministries become “operationally effective” and deliver long-term impact. IFL became a retainer client following their relocation from California to Texas. Later in 2001, Scott rejoined the IFL team as the VP of Ministry Services, and ultimately served as their Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer.
In 2004, Scott joined Hope for the Heart (HFTH) and led many successful change initiatives over the next 11 years, including new system deployments, increased effectiveness of ministry initiatives, lowered operational costs, and expanded ministry impact; ultimately serving as the Chief Operating Officer. Scott also lead the ministry for more than two years as its Interim President from January 2012 until April 2014.
During his tenure with HFTH, Scott also served as part of the executive team that planned and built the Hope Center. Once launched in 2009, Scott served as its Chief Operating Officer until 2013 – including service as Interim President for a little over a year.
Through it all, Scott’s leadership was characterized as a servant leader who cared deeply for all staff members, helping support, grow and empower them towards greater impact using their God-given talents.
Scott and his wife Kim have been married for 33 years, have three grown children and are active members of Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church, Allen, TX where they serve in the church’s marriage ministry programs.
