Hello and thank you for visiting my site! I’m Scott LaPierre:
- Senior pastor of Woodland Christian Church
- Author of:
- Regional Facilitator over WA, OR, and CA for The National Center for Family-Integrated Churches
My wife, Katie, and I have been blessed with six children that we homeschool, and we have a seventh due in May 2018. We grew up together in the small town of McArthur, in the mountains of northern California.
I spend most of my time with my home and church families. I 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 busy with church, music, and school.
My parents, John and Donna LaPierre, Katie’s brother Boyd, and sister, Molly (as well as her husband and kids) have moved to the area to be near us. Everyone lives within a few houses of us. Dad serves as a deacon in the church. We are very blessed!
Education and Career
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 after desired 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 from Liberty University. A few years later I began communicating with the elders at Woodland Christian Church, and I made the transition to become their senior pastor in December of 2010.
