Executive Director/Pastor



Executive Director/Pastor

Scott has lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1985 when he and his family (wife Holly, daughter Hannah, sons Jordan and Elliot) moved from Colorado looking for employment opportunities.

All of Scott’s children are grown now and have given him and Holly seven wonderful grandchildren. Hannah has blessed us with Dorian (4), Jordan and Heather have blessed us with two boys: Zeke (3) and Zane (6), and Elliot and Stephanie have blessed us with our only girl Abbie (10), twins Jacob and Jordan (7), and Luke (4).

Scott worked in the newspaper business for 16 years but ended his media carrier in 2001 to join The Gospel Rescue Mission as the Director of Development. Scott worked at the mission for 17 years, retiring in March of 2018. Holly was much more dedicated to sticking to a job and has been a teacher for over 35 years, mostly in Christian Education, and is currently teaching at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy.

Scott was officially retired for all of 2 months until he and a friend began talking about how so many pastors and missionaries were leaving their positions- burned out, frustrated, and feeling lost and abandoned. They both felt that Christianity itself was under major attack and were convicted to do something to help. That is when the dream of Romans 12 Ministries began.

Scott's dream is to help as many folks as possible to continue their service for the Lord, so they can continue spreading the Gospel of Christ.

Sophia Towne

Ministry Services Associate


Ministry Service Associate 

I was born, raised and married in beautiful green Seattle, Washington in the early 60s. 

My parents were trendsetters in the 60s as a Korean man married to a Caucasian woman who then produced 2 little girls within 10 months of each other and then trendsetting again in the late 70s by having one more biological child 17 years after me!  I came to Christ at the age of 10 along with my mother and sister.  The church was a luxury as my father was not a supporter of church and Christians. He would later accept Christ as his savior a couple of months before his death and my little brother would accept Christ in his early teens.

I began my first job at 15 at the local Baskin and Robbins as the professional scooper of ice cream and chief ice cream cake maker. I then went on to my longest career in retail. I became the youngest manager on a prominent mall at the age of 19 as a stay at home mom I spent 14 years working with one of the top biblically based Direct sales companies in the nation, with a few management positions in between my retail experiences.  While retail has been my working background, people and service have always been my priority and passion. 


Married in 1984 to my best friend we eventually moved to Tucson in 1991 with one daughter to start a new life in the desert. We eventually added 3 more amazing kids to our family.  All 4 are now adults with the addition of 2 wonderful sons-in-law.  Our "best is yet to be" is found in our precious grandkids.

Being a part of Romans 12 Ministries has brought me full circle as a woman, wife, and mother with a husband in ministry.  I have a passion for women and their unique walk in life.  Coming alongside them to help them walk through this life recognized for their own strength, individuality, and voice as a woman, wife, and mother.  I look forward to supporting them, loving them well, and celebrating life with them.
