INTERVIEW | Robert S. Scott, Sr.

May 14th, 2008

Bobby, describe yourself for our visitors.

I didn’t grow up in the church at all. I grew up in gyms and on athletic fields. I was very successful in sports. I won a national and three state championships. I am ashamed to confess now how I used success to further my life of sin. Then the Lord graciously convicted me of my sins through the preaching of the gospel when I was 20. By His grace, I repented and trusted in Christ, and He saved me, and changed me. Within a couple years I was teaching Bible studies at UCLA and from there the Lord called me into the Gospel ministry. So in many ways I am not very churchie. I come across as a regular ole guy. My friends and family know me as Bobby and the saints at LACBC where I serve call me pastor Bobby.

INTERVIEW | Matt Rogers

May 5th, 2008

Matt, describe yourself for our visitors.

I write whenever I have the chance, and I serve as co-pastor of New Life Christian Fellowship at Virginia Tech.
