SCOTT MIKELSENIOR PASTOR
Scott has been shepherding Faith Bible Church since 2012 toward the goal of “faith working through love” for the good of our community and the glory of God. He passionately ministers the truth of God’s Word with the grace of God’s heart to encourage people to faithfully follow Jesus Christ.
Since May of 2012, Scott has been shepherding the spiritual family of Faith Bible Church toward the shared goal of “faith working through love” – loving God, loving one another, and loving our world. Scott is passionate about ministering God’s Word to promote God’s heart in God’s people for God’s glory! From a young age, Scott began following the Lord Jesus Christ, and having grown up in the Farmington area, Scott is committed to influencing the transformation our community needs through the disciple-making impact of the gospel!
Scott and Kelly married in 1996, and their loving adventure now includes the joyful blessings of “doing life” with their grown children and extended families. Scott learned in seminary that a good book deserves good coffee. He earned the Master of Divinity degree in 1998 and looks to keep learning (and laughing) each day. He has been serving Christ’s church in pastoral roles since 1995 with gratitude for the many spiritual mentors and friendships that have graced his ongoing faith journey. Scott believes the power of our Risen Lord Jesus means “the best is yet to come!”
