Hello and thank you for visiting my site! I’m Scott LaPierre:
- Senior pastor of Woodland Christian Church
- Author of Marriage God’s Way and the accompanying workbook
- Regional Facilitator over WA, OR, and CA for The National Center for Family-Integrated Churches
- Speaker for marriage events
My wife, Katie, and I have been blessed with six children that we homeschool. We grew up together in the small town of McArthur, in the mountains of northern California. After high school I attended Florida Institute of Technology where I received my bachelors in business administration while participating in Army ROTC. After graduation I was commissioned as an armor officer.
Following the military I taught elementary school while receiving my masters in education. During that time I became a Christian and soon found myself longing to be in ministry. God opened a door for me to work part-time as an associate pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Lemoore, California. The church grew, they hired me on full-time, and I left teaching public school. During this time I received my masters in biblical studies. In 2010 I began communicating with the elders at Woodland Christian Church and I made the transition to become their senior pastor in December 2010.
I spend most of my time with my home and church families. I also enjoy teaching God’s Word and speaking at conferences and retreats. The free time I have is usually committed to reading and writing. Our kids stay pretty busy with church, music, and school.

- Topics from Scripture
