Scott Smith came to a saving knowledge of Christ through televangelism during his undergraduate education. A year later, God lead him to a Bible-believing church where he met his then future wife, Coreen, and started to grow spiritually. Since that time, he has been passionate about discovering the truths the Bible has within it. He further heeded God’s call to take his Bible knowledge to an advanced level. Now he is committed to not only learning, but also communicating Biblical truth in love for God’s glory. As a teacher, he promotes in his students what he strives for in his own life. He gently challenges them to assess why they believe what they believe; he questions students to push their thinking about God to higher levels; he advocates theology as the foundation for personal living; he urges students to always strive for excellence in what they do, so that God is glorified.
