With 31 years of pastoral experience, Scott Willet first came to CRPC in March, 2016 on an interim basis. He was installed permanently the following year, and continues to serve as a minister of the gospel devoted in equal measure both to the public preaching/teaching of God’s Word and to the personal, shepherding care of God’s people. With a commitment to straightforward, expository preaching giving close attention to the actual texts, Scott is also devoted to the pastoral work of visiting, discipling and counseling. As a pastor-teacher, he will be glad to talk to you at any time. At age 57, the Lord has given Scott energy and zeal for both his public and personal ministry with an eagerness and ability to minister effectively to a wide variety of ages, including teenagers and senior citizens.
Scott has a 1982 Civil Engineering degree from Va. Tech and a 1987 Masters of Divinity degree from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. He and his wife, Sharon, were married in 1987 and have three young-adult daughters. He has previously served churches in Vincennes, IN, Concord, NC, Staunton, VA, and Atlanta, GA. Coming to Mount Airy from Atlanta, Scott is a fan of the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, but otherwise greatly prefers and enjoys life in and around Mount Airy.
