Scott has served as the Lead Pastor here at Church on the Hill since 2005. His heartbeat is to come alongside people in order to orchestrate personal growth. Whether he is teaching timeless, practical truths from the Bible, creating church-wide campaigns, or inviting people to Community Groups, he is committed to help people discover the LIFE that Jesus offers. Scott is the primary vision caster, teacher, and leader of the staff and wants to see each ministry reach its highest potential.
Scott grew up in Southern California where he graduated from Azusa Pacific University and then received a Master of Divinity from Fuller Seminary in Christian Formation and Discipleship. “Team Simmerok” is made up of his wife, Kelli, (married in 1996) and two kids, Courtney and Austin, who fill his life with adventure and fun.
