He consistently and effectively applies the principles of nouthetic, Bible based, counseling to lovingly confront counselees out of deep concern in order to help them make the changes in their lives that God requires, as taught through His Word. Scott sees Biblical counseling as an important extension of pastoral care to the Body of Christ and he devotes time to the Counseling Ministry over and above his normal duties as Pastor at SkyPointe Church.
