After serving as Peace Corps Volunteers in Brazil, Jon and Margaret Scott became Nazarene missionaries. They served in Portugal, the Azores, Romania, Mozambique and Malawi, focusing their ministry on the development and empowerment of local leadership. As they moved to the States from their last assignment in Africa, God made it clear to them that the next place of service would be Seattle!
The Scotts envision the equipping and empowering of everyone in the congregation toward reaching their “full measure in Christlikeness” (Ephesians 4). Striving for “Unity in the Community,” they engage weekly with activities in the broader community of Normandy Park, Des Moines, SeaTac, Burien and White Center. Jon and Margaret Scott welcome you to Living Hope Church of the Nazarene.
