Hey guys, it's "Coach England!” Well, at least that’s how I’m often referred to by the Creative Arts Team here at Eastridge. My consultant role as “coach” began Fall of 2010 and blossomed into a staff position in January 2014. My goal remains to coach our team into a greater lifestyle of worship, unity in Christ, and utilize their talents to glorify God and edify people. The only way to truly be effective in a church community is to live in it, so we packed up the family and made the move from our hometown in Smyrna, GA to the grand country livin’ of Social Circle. Now we’re a proud bunch of gun-slingin,’ music-singin' Bible toters. My bride, Riann, and I have known each other since first grade and have been married since 1999. The Lord blessed us with our first child, Madeleine Elise England, in July 2013.
Over the last 14 years I’ve been traveling the world as a “musicianary,” inspiring people through original music and leading in worship. Over the years I’ve had the privilege to release four albums, including the most recent, Redeemed And Brave which includes songs sung by churches across the states, including Eastridge, and is being played on nationally syndicated radio around the world.
Riann and I have thoroughly enjoyed planting roots with Eastridge and are excited to have a local church family to support and share in our continued global ministry adventures. I would love for you to take a listen to my music or read more of my Journey with the Lord on my website, ScottEngland.com.
Favorite music: YES PLEASE. Although I enjoy all genres of music, some of my favorite artists are Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, Keane, Bon Iver, Hillsong, Sam Hunt, and forever a huge Steven Curtis Chapman fan.
Favorite movies: When we’re not out with friends, you’ll find Riann and I snuggled up on the couch watching movies. Some of the favs consist of Crash, anything Jason Statham or Liam Neeson, Superman (the originals), anything Marvel, Moulin Rouge, RAD, Karate Kid, and E.T.
Favorite books: The Barbarian Way (McManus), Experiencing God (Blackaby), Five Love Languages (Chapman), Forgotten God (Chan), Tribes (Godin), Emerging Worship (Kimble).
Favorite TV shows: Friday Night Lights, Blacklist, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Friends, Knight Rider, Seinfeld, Lost, the Office.
Favorite scripture (or one that speaks to your life) and why:
Proverbs 3:3-4: Let love and faithfulness never leave you, bind them around your neck, write them on the tablets of your heart. Then you will win favor, and a good name, in the eyes of both God and man.
Psalm 37:4-7: Delight yourself in the Lord and he will GIVE you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to him, Trust in him and de will do this. He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, and the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
