Shannon Scott was born and raised in a Christian home in Tennessee. His Dad was a pastor, and his Mom was a very Godly and musical woman. He prayed to receive Christ when he was young, but never had peace about his salvation. He departed from his Christian roots, and in 1989 he went to California to become a ‘rock star.’ God had other plans, and thwarted his. Just like the prodigal son, he returned home to Tennessee, and was wondrously and gloriously saved August 19, 1992. He returned to California where he recognized the call to preach November 26, 1995. In 1996 he met his wife Cecilia. December 7, 1996, Cecilia was saved on their second date at a revival in Norwalk, California, where evangelist Joe Boyd was preaching. She was baptized the next evening of the revival. They were married June 28, 1997. He finally surrendered to the call to preach August 1998. In 2000 he started a prison ministry in California. He pastored a church in Southern California from June 2003 till June 2009. Then, he reentered the field of evangelism in August of 2009. In November 2014, his wife, and their four children, Sabrina 15, Andrew 13, Celeste 11, and Christina 8, moved to North Carolina, and joined the Bible Baptist Church of S. Boston VA. He spends his time preaching revivals, missions conferences, writing books, counseling, soul winning, and doing discipleship.
