Hello! I'm Scott and I have been serving Ponte Vedra United Methodist musically since 2001 when we began as the South Campus of Beach UM Church in Jacksonville Beach. From lead guitar in the Praise Band, I moved into my present position of Casual Service (9:30am Sundays) Worship Leader in the fall of 2005. In 2007, I also took on leadership for our Youth Creative Arts Ministry (YCAM) on Wednesday nights. As our use of multi-media elements has grown in worship services, we have added features which I enjoy coordinating now as Worship Media Director.


I have been playing professionally since 1979 and I teach private lessons

in guitar, violin,piano and bass guitar.

As I lead the Praise Band and Praise Choir, I enjoy continuing to sing and play guitar in the band.

In 2018 I added the role of Facilities Director, and often work with Jim McDonald

around the building and campus to keep our setting beautifully inviting and in good order

for supporting the many groups and events we host during any typical week.


I have the privilege of being married to Sheila, our Sunday Casual Worship service lead singer,

since 2013.
