Meet Scott Schumpert, PCA’s New Campus Minister
Prattville Christian Academy is pleased to welcome Scott Schumpert as the school’s new Campus Minister, effective July 1. Scott is passionate about Christ and his community and radiates a desire to change the world through future generations.
PCA has continued to grow, and so has the need for a staff position that could oversee the spiritual direction of the entire student body. As PCA’s Campus Minister, Scott will serve on the school’s senior staff and will be primarily responsible for enhancing the spiritual development of students, families, as well as faculty and staff members. He will work to develop programs and activities to grow the PCA community closer to Christ, in tandem with families’ congregations, as the school lives out its mission of preparing Christian leaders for life. In addition to this primary task, Scott will oversee the following areas:
- Lead PCA’s chapel program, including upper school’s Chapel Practicum class
- Assist in oversight, selection, and training of Bible curriculum and faculty members
- Facilitate spiritual growth opportunities such as Spiritual Emphasis Days, mission trips, community rallies, etc.
- Select PCA’s spiritual focus areas for the school year
- Oversee PCA’s Bible teachers and teach Bible classes as needed
- Provide Biblical counseling to students, faculty and staff as well as families
Scott is a graduate of Mississippi State University and Huntingdon College. He attended seminary at Wesley Biblical Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s married to Celisa Schumpert, and together they have three children; Anna Lauren, Kyle, and Caroline. Kyle is a 2015 graduate of PCA, and Caroline is a rising junior active in various areas of the school. The Schumpert family is actively involved in Centerpoint Fellowship Church, where he was one of the founding pastors. Scott has been active in the local community coaching youth sports, serving on nonprofit boards, and leading the Prattville Ministerial Association. Outside of his professional duties, he enjoys playing and watching sports, including the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Duke basketball, playing golf, reading, and hanging out with people.
Scott is looking forward to this new endeavor and is very excited about being a part of the PCA family and learning the stories God is writing in the lives of this community. His passion and expertise in discipleship, missions, service, and relationship-building in young adults will allow PCA to thrive in its mission of preparing Christian leaders for life.
