My Story

Scott was diagnosed with CTC Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma several years ago. He has had a variety of treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and a stem-cell transplant. In March of this year, he had his left leg amputated due to tumor-damaged tissue. He has greatly benefited from various treatments made possible by research.

Scott fought his Lymphoma valiantly for about 8 years, serving Christ the whole way through. He lived his life for Christ and his heart was filled with love for his family and friends. Scott graced numerous ministries with his tireless demonstration of his passion for Christ and love of helping others. A few include Job’s Partnership, OC Jail & Prison Ministry, Table Leader at Man in the Mirror Men’s Bible Study and traveled with Pat Morley leading thousands of men all over the country through his powerful voice. He used is God-given gift of singing to provide pure, amazing music to comfort the hurting, bring joy to weddings, and to lead untold thousands into the worshipful presence of our Savior.

 He used his battle with cancer to give testimony of God’s refining work in his life. He leaves an incredible legacy of teaching and modeling to others the joys and lessons that can be found in difficult times or “the mines of suffering.” He believed strongly that the currency of life is relationships. He was a great friend to many, known for his genuine authentic spirited transparency and humorous nature. He loved well, loved often, and knew he was loved. Though he will be greatly missed, we know that this Sojourner has heard the sounds of a welcome home band and is where he belongs with his first love, his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I DON'T BELONG
words by Gloria Gaither, music by Buddy Greene

It's not home
Where men sell their souls
And the taste of power is sweet
Where wrong is right
And neighbors fight
While the hungry are dyin' in the streets
Where kids are abused 
And women are used
And the weak are crushed by the strong
Nations gone mad
Jesus is sad
And I don't belong

Chorus:
I don't belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
I don't belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a "welcome home" band
I don't belong
I'm a foreigner here
Singing a sojourner's song
I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong


Don't belong
But while I'm here
I'll be living like I've nothin' to lose
And while I breathe
I'll just believe
My Lord is gonna see me through
I'll not be deceived
By earth's make-believe
I'll close my ears to her siren song
By praisin' His name, I'm not ashamed
'Cause I don't belong

Repeat Chorus

I belong 
To a kingdom of peace
Where only love is the law
Where children lead
And captives are freed
And God becomes a baby on the straw
Where dead men live
And rich men give
Their kingdoms to buy back a song
Where sinners like me
Become royalty
And we'll all belong

Yes I belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
Where I'll belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a "welcome home" band
Yes, I'll belong
No foreigner there
Singin' a sojourner's song
I've always known
I'm going home
Where I belong
Yes I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong
