VERONA, Wis.—Jeremy Scott has been installed as pastor at Memorial Baptist Church.

Pastor Scott describes himself as a testimony of God’s patience, mercy, and grace. He grew up in a Christian home and at an early age desired to pastor a church. With this resolve, he entered Bible college after high school and earned a BA in Biblical studies. His postgraduate work has led to two master’s degrees, with an MDiv to be completed this summer.

Before accepting the pastorate in Verona, he pastored churches in Rhode Island and Illinois. He says he feels honored to serve the Lord at Memorial and is thankful for God’s mercy and grace that have been abundantly given to him. When not studying for a message or class, he likes to spend time with his best friend and wife, Anouk, and their 2-year-old daughter, Michaela, whom they adopted at birth in 2011.
