After starving as a musician in Los Angeles, Pastor returned East where he worked as a surveyor on Hilton Head and Daufuskie Islands and managed a store that sold everything from bootleg tapes to London Fog trench coats.
Graduating sum laude from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, he served congregations in Virginia, Ohio, and Illinois. In 1992, he left parish ministry to train as a pastoral psychotherapist, graduating from The Center for Religion and Psychotherapy of Chicago.
For the past twenty-six years he has served as President of Limina Institute, a religious non-profit for the practice of pastoral psychotherapy. He continued his training with The CG Jung Institute of Pittsburgh.
Throughout the years, he has led workshops at Yokefellow Institute and The Maria Stein Retreat Center and consulted for congregations, judicatories, and businesses.
Pastor Scott is married to Deb, also a therapist and retired adjunct professor at Illinois State University. From previous marriages, they share three children: Jacob, Charles, and Alayna.
In his spare time, Pastor Scott boxes, golfs, and listens to music.
