Pastor Scott Rooks

Pastor Scott has been in ministry since he was 15 years old. He began his ministry when he founded a local Southern Gospel group called the Bethelairs. From there he felt the call to evangelism and began traveling and preaching the good news throughout the Midwest, including Iowa where he met his wife Ann. Eventually, God called him and his wife to Pastor a church close to his hometown in Northern Missouri. In the coming years Pastor Scott was called to lead churches in Alabama and California. Pastor Scott came to Westside Assembly of God in 2006. With a fresh vision for a church full of rich history Pastor Scott began a journey of restoration for Westside. Spiritually, the church began to focus on discipleship and spiritual growth. Physically, Pastor Scott began the process of renovating the campus facilities, believing that God honors stewardship and those that manage His resources well. Under Pastor Scott's leadership the church developed into a spiritually healthy body of believers committed to reaching the surrounding community by building relationships with those we come in contact with daily. His heart is for the local church and the community it serves.
