  • scot davis

    minister to families, children & youth

    I have been blessed to serve God through Youth and Children's Ministry for over 20 years. I strive to establish a ministry that is Bible-based, person-centered, and life-focused. A native of Roanoke, VA, I graduated from East Tennessee State University and received my Masters' degree in Christian Education from Midwestern Baptist Seminary in Kansas City, MO. I am married to Jenny and have 3 wonderful children--two boyish boys, Garrett and Spencer, and an adorable little girl, Meredith. I am passionate about all football (pee wee up through the NFL), but my favorite team-hands down- is the Dallas Cowboys. I enjoy basketball (Go Hokies and Heels!), and NASCAR (especially Hendrick Motorsports)
