Pr Scott Jones – Lead pastor

Pastor Scott Jones was born, raised and met his wife, Robin, in the Sacramento area. He grew up as a farm kid (Wilton), worshipping at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Elk Grove. After attending and working at Mt. Cross, Pr. Scott decided to attend college in the Santa Cruz Mountains (UC Santa Cruz). After graduation Pr. Scott remained on college campuses for another thirteen years working in contract food service management at UC Davis, Santa Rosa Jr. College, UC Santa Cruz and UNLV.

When Pr. Scott sensed a call to ministry he and his family moved to Chicago, where he attended North Park Theological Seminary. Pr. Scott served Evangelical Covenant Churches in Chicago, IL and Cromwell, CT before being called back to his theological and geographical roots as Lead Pastor at Lutheran Church of the Ascension.

In addition to being a San Francisco Giants fan, Pr. Scott is very fond of coffee (black) and chocolate (without coconut). Pr. Scott enjoys spending time with his family, going out to eat, trips to the coast and watching the Giants in the Pacific Standard Time zone.
