Scott Venable is the Lead Pastor of Northwood Church. Before Northwood, Scott and his wife planted and led a multi-ethnic church in urban Chicago that help plant 10 other churches in a span of 7 years. He has been pastoring, preaching and leading conferences for 23 years and is passionate about seeing God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven. Scott’s love for the church and all people was the fuel for his completion of a Doctorate in Ministry Leadership in a Multi-ethnic Context from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. For fun, Scott loves traveling the world, beaches and mountains, sports and spending time with his beautiful wife and three kids.
