About Scott

I have been involved in, what is typically called, “church planting” for the past 10+ years in Philadelphia and here in my hometown of Syracuse. It has been a bumpy ride full of joy and bitterness, tears and laughter, learning and loving. Over the years I have been shaped and molded by what I have gone through and am thankful for the way Jesus has been teaching me.

This blog is an avenue for me to flesh out thoughts on discipleship, mission, and community as I [attempt to] write from a place of actual practice and engagement. These three have grabbed my heart and imagination as I seek to follow after and with Jesus.

I call this blog “Storied Community: Learning the Jesus Way of Life Together” because everyone lives out of and participates within a story. We then form communities as these embodied stories draw us together. I believe Jesus creates real community and we join in that as together we learn to live life with him and like him.

On a more personal note:

I am an avid reader of both books and culture.

I can be skeptical, but, I’d like to think, it flows from a deep, deep love.

I have worked with special needs students for the past 7+ years and have been taught more by them than I realize.

I have a Bachelors in Biblical Studies and a Masters in Theological Studies.

Thanks for stopping by.
