Scott Herrin was a pastor and minister in the Southern Baptist Church for over twenty years. After leaving the organization jaded, he made a concerted effort to separate from the church.
For seven years he made a few attempts to reintroduce “church” into his life and family, but each time he was left feeling empty and confused. In a chance meeting while speaking at an event, Pastor Bob Beeman had coffee with Scott and initiated a conversation that changed his life. What is real church? Scott began to study, dig into and dissect whether all this time he had been focused on a delusion. Had he been serving Jesus or an organization? Pastor Bob soon asked Scott to be a part of his ministry, Sanctuary International, and use his story and gifts to encourage others. Now, as a pastor/podcaster for Sanctuary, Scott has produced several podcast series including “Body Slammed,” a podcast about church recovery, “45 RPM,” “Scott’s Powerhouse,” “The Adventures of Scott & Tammie” featuring his wife alongside him, and “Ask Brother Buford,” a satirical comedy podcast featuring a very skewed parody of judgmental, bully-type preachers.
Scott continues to live in rural south Mississippi with his wife, Tammie.
“This Album taps into my childhood days, growing up in church and singing them often. These words are burned into my soul. Nick Layton is a master and a natural at taking these songs that I’ve loved my entire life and bringing them to life in a new way that I know many will relate with and respond to. Roger Dale Martin is a legend, and he brought his expertise and artistry to these hymns making them true masterpieces in completely new ways! Both, with their hooks and grooves, combined with the inherited power flowing within these timeless pieces of Heaven, will surely usher your heart straight to the feet of King Jesus. It is a blessing beyond measure to have the gift of being able to work on this project with these two guys, along with Chris Dorman and Don Waite, two of the kindest, most knowledgeable, and gifted Bible teachers that I know.” — Scott
