I serve as one of the Elders and overseer of Refreshing Kids Ministry (RKC). I am also the Human Resource Manager and the Executive Assistant to the Office of Bishop Ronald Scott and Senior Pastor Angela Scott.  I am the proud mother of one son, and together we serve youth in our community as Team K and K using the pillars: love, faith, and prayer. My motto is to saturate every assignment with prayer, shower everyone with love, and seal it all in faith.


I am an Elder and assist with overseeing the Business Operations. I have been a covenant partner since 2011. While I am intentional about all of the pillars of the church, love is the one I hold dear to my heart. My goal is to demonstrate the love of Christ in all areas of my life. Serving our local community through our church is one of the many ways I demonstrate it. I am married to my wife, Jennifer Stout, and we have two children.

I also serve as a member of the Executive Board and assist with community outreach. I am graced to serve based on our church's pillars of love, faith, and prayer.


I am an Elder serving as overseer of the Youth Ministry, and one of our pillars, love, is its foundation. I am also the Intercessory Prayer Team Leader, and our pillar of faith serves as its foundation. In these positions, there is a passionate desire to see those who are being served and impacted in these areas live to their potential while reflecting God’s glory.
