About Our Senior Pastors
Meet Pastor Sir Walter
Sir Walter Scott, III; as a child of an Army Chaplain, has had the privilege of living in numerous states in the U.S., and in various countries. This upbringing has afforded him the opportunity to connect and communicate with people from all walks of life. In his 25+ years of ministry, this mission has been lived through sharing the gospel in the streets, on air, on college campuses, in juvenile detention facilities, as well as overseas in seven nations and counting.
Sir Walter is an ambassador with a prophesied-call to the ministry of reconciliation, and has worked to cultivate unity in the body of Christ across cultures, generations, and denominations. He believes the greatest glory we can experience is the glory of knowing God as One, the second is the glory of making Him known. This oneness and reconciliation is also shared with his wife as they release this glory of the Lord and make Jesus known in marriages and families.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University. With this education he has hosted a Christian radio program, published Walk Of A Champion, a youth devotional, and recorded several music projects. Together with his wife, Patience, they faithfully serve as senior pastors of Abounding Grace Family Worship Center, and are proudly training up three beautiful daughters, Victoria, Soteria, and Kezia.
