Scott has been involved in cross-cultural work for the past 20 years. He has helped large mission organizations train churches, missionaries, and indigenous church leaders throughout the world. He has provided strategic direction to church planting teams who serve where there is little sustained access to the gospel, but his greatest joy has been helping start churches where there were none. Scott serves as Director of Global Outreach at McLean Bible Church in Mclean, VA.
Scott received his Ph.D. from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, writing on the importance of the local church in missionary strategy. Scott and his wife have two children and live in Richmond, VA.
