Scott Prater, Student/Music Pastor: Salvation Experience: I was saved at the age of ten while attending R.A. Camp, at Shocco Springs Baptist Assembly. The Lord placed some incredible godly leaders and teachers in my life to disciple me through the years. Many of those were at a very important time as I answered the call of God into the Ministry, in July of 1989. Since that time, the Lord has provided many opportunities and avenues to share Him with others. Those have included preaching, teaching, speaking in schools, singing in a Christian band, and leading worship. It is my desire to live and serve in a way that brings glory to His name and leads others to see Him more clearly.
