Scott Foster as its new pastor, effective June 1. pageAt the time of his selection, Foster was serving as pastor of First United Presbyterian Church in Guthrie, Oklahoma. On the recommendation of the Pastor Nominating Committee, the PCM congregation unanimously elected him as pastor. Their decision was based on Foster’s second career call to ministry, a significant business background, familiarity with life in the Northeast, and mutual alignment with the vision of the church: To see lives transformed, families strengthened, and our community renewed through intentional relationship with Jesus Christ. According to Foster, “Their written profile clearly called my name and we hit it off from the first phone conversation with the search team. We just clicked, and our visions were almost in lock step.” Prior to entering ministry, Foster, his wife Becky, and their two children lived in Westchester County, New York where he pursued a career in the music industry. His growing commitment to Christ led the family back home to Oklahoma where Foster attended Phillips Theological Seminary. In 2010, he earned a Masters of Divinity degree, and went on to serve as pastor of First United Presbyterian Church in Guthrie. While there, Foster revitalized their youth ministry by implementing mid-week worship services and Christian education programs. Through community engagement and one-on-one conversations, he was able to grow the congregation and empower a new generation through relevant real-life Christianity.
