A bit about me
Riverlife has been my home church for more than 20 years. It was here that I came to know Jesus, was discipled by faithful mentors, encountered His love, and now it's where God has called me to serve in a pastoral capacity as the Riverlife Youth Pastor. I've been married to Annie for more than five years and have four children: Marley, Francis, and identical twins Wesley and Luca. You can hear some of my music online by searching for 'Scott and Annie McKinnon'. I love coffee and baked goods (savoury is where it's at!), reading inspirational books, running, and hanging out with close friends over a good homemade meal.
Most defining moment
In 2020 I was commissioned by the Riverlife Staff as the new Youth Pastor. This time of prayer has defined me like no other moment in my ministry (aside from my wedding day and the birth of my children, of course!).
Why I do it
I do it to glorify Christ. There is no other rightful response to the revelation of Jesus than to worship Him alone through my surrendered life. I do it for Him and I do it to see His church step into what He has destined for them. I long to see individuals find freedom in Christ, but more than that, to see them step into their callings and to assist them in holistically living out the freedom that they have received.
