  • SCOTT OWENS - PASTOR OF student ministries and leadership development

    Scott came to Faith Church in November of 2016. He got called into ministry from a desire to have authentic, intentional conversations with students and parents about Christ. He wants nothing more then to see people that don't know Jesus come to know Him and for those that know Him to be IN AWE of Him everyday. 

    Scott and his wife, Carrie, have six kids (Isabelle, Elijah, Mathias, Clara, Samuel and Josiah) and most of their energy goes into putting their faith into action at home and modeling that to everyone that God brings into their path. He believes in being faith-rooted at home, authentic in community and resourced passionately from the church. 

    He loves soccer, Stonehouse Coffee, the book of John, MNUFC, biographies, Moleskine notebooks, the book of Romans, Piggy Blues, acronyms, the book of Ecclesiastes, mexican food and students that don't play practical jokes on his car (affectionately known as the "jellybean").
