Dr. Joshua Scott, Senior Pastor

Dr. Joshua Scott was called as the Senior Pastor of Greater Providence Baptist Church in September 2022. Joshua received his Bachelor of Science (dual)degree in History and Sociology from Jacksonville State University. In addition, he has earned a Master of Divinity from McAfee School of Theology and a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Morehouse School of Religion. In 2020 Joshua graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and is graduating in December 2022 with a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Preaching from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Joshua is a board member for Orchard Resources, a nonprofit based in Atlanta, and simultaneously serves as a board member for McAfee School of Theology. Joshua firmly believes in equipping the next generation and every generation to know and love God! Joshua is married to the love of his life Lauren Scott.

One of Joshua’s favorite verses in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This verse is the lens through which Joshua views life. He believes that no obstacle is too hard for God, and with God, every battle can be won.

Join me in welcoming Dr. Scott and his wife, Lauren, into our Greater Providence family.
