Scott Stine has been the pastor at First Baptist Newton since December 2017. He is from Indiana, and most recently pastored two churches in Pittsburgh prior to coming to Newton. He is married to Kate, and they have a son Isaiah and a newborn daughter, Dorothy Mae. They also have a Malty-Poo named Maggie.
Scott holds degrees from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville and Reformed Presbyterian Seminary in Pittsburgh, and is currently working toward a PhD at Columbia Biblical Seminary (Columbian International University).
His goal as a pastor is to help people believe in and follow Jesus the God-Man as He builds His church deep and wide. Scott and Kate love living in Newton - north Jersey's hidden gem. Scott loves reading AW Tozer, CS Lewis, RC Sproul, Tim Keller, Graeme Goldsworthy, JI Packer, and Iain Murray. His favorite hymn and worship songwriters are Fanny Crosby, Charles Wesley, and the Gettys, and his favorite song is Rich Mullins' "If I Stand". He also is a recovering sports fanatic (Purdue basketball, Colts football, Pacers basketball, and Cardinals baseball). Pray for him!
