Scott – Senior Pastor

Hey I’m Scott Bosier, Pastor here at Shoal Creek Baptist Church! You can contact me via e-mail by clicking here. Pastor Scott at the Grand Canyon!

Here’s a little about me:

Family: Wife – Renee (Married 28 years), Son – Scott, Jr.

Education: Bachelor of Music from University of South Florida; Master of Music from DePaul University; Master of Theology from Truett McConnell University.

Background: I’m a military brat who has lived in Florida, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, and the Netherlands. Actor/Athlete until I studied to become an opera singer! I sang for the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Skylight Opera Theater in Milwaukee, Muddy River Opera, da Corneto Opera, Atlanta Opera Company… until God changed the tune when my son was born. I settled in Waleska for the past seventeen years and have served as Pastor of Shoal Creek for nine of those years.

I was saved in a non-denominational Christian Church, Renee and I met at an Independent Baptist Church, worshipped in Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, Assemblies of God, Evangelical Free Churches…wherever the Holy Spirit of God is… that’s where I want to worship. Throughout all those churches and denominations, I’ve been worship leader, music ministry, small group leader, Sunday school teacher, and even the youth pastor – some times all at once!

Music: Verdi, Sting and the Police, Chopin, Petra, the Beatles, Matt Maher, Mozart, Weird Al Yankovich, Bach…

Movies: The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Bourne and Bond movies. Stranger than Fiction, Braveheart, What about Bob, The Greatest Showman, and Big Trouble in Little China. Sci-Fi, Western, Eastern, Comedy, Drama, Thriller, Suspense… All the above.

Favorite quote? “Because we love something else more than this world, we love even this world better than those who know no other.” — C.S. Lewis, God in The Dock

Favorite character Harold Crick in the movie Stranger Than Fiction. Harold has the courage to simply trust the author of the story, even when that means sacrificing his life for another (sound familiar?).

Favorite Scripture: “Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

A few of my favorite things: Time Off: Spending time with my family. Drink: water with Mio (Preferably Blue Thunder or Black Cherry) Food: Pizza. Color: Red. Place: Anywhere that God has made.
