New Beginnings As Central Manor Church Welcomes New Senior Pastor
Central Manor Church of God is pleased to welcome Pastor Scott Davis as the new Senior Pastor beginning June 18th. Pastor Scott will begin preaching on July 2nd. Pastor Scott and his wife Lisa accepted the invitation to come to Central Manor Church following a resounding 96% affirmation vote by the congregation.
Mark Harris, elder and chairman of the search team states, “The search team found Pastor Scott to be a sound Bible teacher who enjoys building relationship’s through discipleship.” The foundation of discipleship through relational ministry was laid early for Pastor Scott. Mark relates, “As a child, [Pastor Scott] and his family were ministered to by a local church and the impact of that church brought his family and him to a relationship with Jesus.”
After graduating from Bob Jones University in 1989 with a B.A. in Bible, Davis married his wife Lisa and attended Calvary Baptist Seminary, Lansdale, PA, where he received his Master of Divinity degree in 1996, and later his Doctorate of Ministries degree in 2014. His doctorate thesis titled, “A Seminar to Strengthen the Confidence and Commitment of Future Pastors to the Authority of Scripture in Light of Postconservative Teaching” reflects his 22 years of senior pastorate and church planting experience. Pastor Scott served as the founder and senior pastor of Nazareth Baptist Church and later effectively administered a church merger with Slate Belt Church in Pen Argyl, PA, where he assumed the role of senior pastor in 2005. He also assisted in planting a Korean Church and Allentown Bible Church during his ministry. Additionally, Pastor Scott currently serves as the Assistant Spiritual Director at Central Manor Campmeeting and Bible Conference.
Scott and Lisa have three children, Ashley, Kirsten, and Noah. “Lisa and I are excited to be a part of what God is doing at Central Manor Church” relates Davis. “Lisa’s parents grew up in Washington Boro” adding, “we have many good friends and relatives in the church and in the area.” Davis’ passion for the new role at Central Manor Church is evident as he says, “I love how the leadership works together and how they are structured. I believe many great things are ahead for Central Manor.”
