Rev. Scott King was born in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  He grew up enjoying a wide variety of sports ranging from football, baseball, and surfing. At age 18, he met his beautiful wife, Esther, and was married a year later.

Pastor Scott and Esther are the proud parents of four great and really cool kids: Courtney, Jessica, Michael, and Victoria. Pastor Scott has a degree in Computer Technologies from ECPI and began his career in this field.


When he was 24 years old, Pastor Scott surrendered to a calling to preach. He began to study under some wonderful pastors who helped shape him into the pastor he is today.  He received his seminary training from Nazarene Bible College.  He began his ministry as a youth pastor in Orange Park, Florida. He then transitioned to the role of senior pastor.  He has served as a senior pastor in Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Pastor Scott feels blessed to have received a call to be the Senior Pastor of Fairmont First Church of the Nazarene.


Pastor Scott enjoys spending time with his family. His hobbies include fishing, hunting, and golfing. As a family, the King's enjoy hiking, camping, and martial arts.  The entire family has achieved a black belt and above ranking in Tae Kwon Do.


Pastor Scott's life verse is Romans 12:1-2, "Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God- this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will."

One of Pastor Brenna's favorite passages of Scripture is Micah 7:18-19. "Who is a God like you, who pardons sins and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread out sins underfoot and hurl our iniquities into the depths of the sea."
