Pastor Scott Conn is our Lead Pastor. He and his wife Jackie have been married since 1983. They have four beautiful daughters who are married and raising families of their own. 


Pastor Scott is a 1989 graduate of United Wesleyan College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral/Youth Ministry. He is an Ordained Minister of the Chesapeake District of the Wesleyan Church.


Scott has served as a Pastor and Evangelist within the Wesleyan Church. While serving as an evangelist, it allowed Scott to spread God’s glory in many services throughout a large area and to gain wisdom of the church as he ministered in many different venues.


In June 2014, Pastor Scott felt that God was calling him specifically to assume the role of Lead Pastor of Laurel Wesleyan Church. He is passionately excited about fulfilling the mission of Laurel Wesleyan Church to Find, Follow & Go.
