Welcome Scot Ward this Sunday

Scot Ward is the founder and president of Scot Ward Funeral Services. Scot has two daughters Megan, born in 1994 and Lauren, born in 1997. He lives in McDonough, GA and attends Buckhead Church in Atlanta. His daughter Megan attends North Georgia University and Lauren attends Union Grove High School. Scot often states that he has had some of the best role models a boy could have ever had, referring to his father and grandfather. They taught him a love for the Lord, a love for others and a desire to give back to the Lord and to the community that gives to you.

Welcome Scot and his wife as he fills in for Rev. Zack this Sunday, February 21st.
