Pastor Scott Poling
Scott can relate. He knows what it’s like to be the only pastor in a very small church answering the phone and opening the mail. He also knows what it’s like to practice delegation and oversight of a larger staff. He understands the pressures of ministry and all the criticisms that come with it. After serving as Senior Pastor at Harvest New Beginnings for 20 years, he has gained a unique perspective on ministry and leadership which allows him to speak into pastors’ lives. He speaks your language.
Scott grew up in and around Ocean City, New Jersey and at the age of 17 received Christ as his Savior. He graduated from Cedarville University and Dallas Theological Seminary and has been married to his wife, Carla, for 25 years. They have 5 children from age 8 to 22. Scott’s heart is for encouraging and building up pastors and other leaders in ministry.
Outside of being a pastor, Scott enjoys trail running with his Weimaraner, Scout, hiking America’s national parks and running both marathons and ultra-marathons. He plans to run his second 100 mile race in September.
