Dr. Rourk spent twenty years engaging the postmodern culture while living out the gospel as a church planting missionary pastor in three countries. He helped plant ten churches throughout his ministry including six churches in Minsk, Belarus, a church in NYC, & three churches in Toronto, Canada.
He returned to Atlanta in 2017 to continue sharing the gospel of the Kingdom by revitalizing & replanting churches in his home state. He has been the lead replant pastor at CBCMarietta since 2017. CBCMarietta is his first replant where in just two and half years he grew the church from twelve people to sixty-six people before COVID-19.
Pastor Scott earned a Doctor of Ministry in Strategic Leadership from NOBTS in 2022. His doctoral ministry project is entitled Designing a Replant Stategy for Chattahoochee Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia. In 2021, he started implementing his replant strategy to reclaim, restore, rebuild, and reproduce disciples who make disciples.
Scott’s Kingdom work has been featured in domestic and international media including two independent documentary films, the front page of the New York Times, New York Magazine, Christianity Today, The Christian Index, Baptist Press, church planting books, and newspapers..
Scott's been married to his Canadian wife, Kristen for 24 years. She enjoys leading women's ministry. Their two children, Megan (21) and Ethan (19), both attend Georgia State University.
