Scott Parker became a Christian while attending a Baptist church in rural Southern Ohio as a teenager. At the age of 17, he began preaching and teaching the Bible in various churches and then was officially ordained into the ministry at the age of 20. Later, he spent over 6 years in an independent charismatic church while working in Christian radio. After listening to CSN (Calvary Satellite Network) for about a year, he left to attend a Calvary Chapel. Scott was called to the Saint Louis area initially as a CSN radio station manager in 2001. After starting a home Bible study that same year, Calvary Chapel Festus began under his leadership in January, 2005 and he continues to serve as the pastor to this day. Pastor Scott is also the featured speaker of the church's national radio ministry, "A Word For The Church," and a regular co-host on "To Every Man An Answer," CSN's live question and answer call-in program. Since coming to Christ, it has always been Pastor Scott's desire to tell others about Jesus Christ and His amazing love. He and his wife DeAnna reside in here in Festus and have two sons, Matthew and Benjamin.
