Dr. Scott Reynolds serves as the pastor of North River Church Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Scott’s passion for the church is driven out of Romans 8:29 “For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.” The need all of us have to be conformed to the image of Christ is what drove Scott and a handful of core families to birth the North River Church Tuscaloosa, Alabama. What an incredible journey this is! Each and every day God does something new, and He continues to bless His new church in an amazing way. God constantly brings new people to join in the work of loving and making a difference in this city and this world for the Kingdom of Christ.
Back in the fall of 2005 God gave Scott the burden to build a church on the words of Ezekiel 47:12 “Their fruit will be used for food and their leaves for medicine.” North River Church is built to be a place where intimacy with Jesus nourishes our lives, and our ministries can be a place of healing. Scott grew up in a Christian home and many times overlooked the blessing of Christian parents. His own testimony speaks of a life that has experienced the world and found himself empty. However, God got Scott’s attention and drew him back into a right relationship with Him. In 1988 God called Scott into ministry and into a life committed to living out the glory of God. Scott’s prayer for ministry is to live out Malachi 2:6 “True instruction was in his mouth, and unrighteousness was not found on his lips: he walked with Me in peace and uprightness, and he turned many back from iniquity.” Scott is married to Lori and they have two children, Ariel and Dean.
