 BISHOP 

SCOTT KING

Senior Pastor

Engaging, discerning, and relevant without compromise are just a few words among many that have been used to describe the ministry of Scott King. Scott is a man of God with a multifaceted ministry, daring to preach where most would not go and willing to accept the call as a prophet to the nations. God has equipped him to fulfill that call with appointments as Church of God World Missions PRIMO over Belize and the Eastern Territory of Honduras and, most recently, Ambassador to the United Nations.

Pastor Scott continues to travel each year spreading the revival fire of Pentecost to any church, no matter what size, as an evangelist.  

He has been married to his wife Tyra for 23 years and has two sons, Corban and Cole. He also has 2 fur babies, Bella and Ali their, beloved Labs.
