Pastor Scott Brown has joined the Mount Olivet team as the new Interim Pastor until the Call Committee finds a permanent minister to call to Mount Olivet.
Scott was born in 1953 in Oshawa, Ontario, the oldest of three children. His mother was a school teacher and his father was a national manager at GM Canada.
In 1976, Scott married Pamela Duholke in Calgary. In January of ’79, Scott & Pam moved to Edmonton. They then moved to Saskatoon in ’82 for Scott to attend seminary there. While in Saskatoon, they had two sons: Jeremy, who passed away in 2002, and Christopher, who lives in Edmonton.
Pastor Scott was ordained in 1984. He has served parishes in Bentley, Medicine Hat, and Thorsby, here in Alberta. He has also served in Shellbrook, Outlook, and Lanigan, in Saskatchewan, and one parish in Selkirk, Manitoba. Pastor Scott & Pam later moved back to Edmonton.
When asked for his philosophy of life was, Pastor Scott said: “I have found that when I am most frustrated God is trying to get my attention.”
His favourite saying is: “God uses Providence; He uses coincidence only when He wants to remain anonymous.”
“For when we do not know how to pray, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with sighs and groans too deep for words.” Romans 8:26
