Scott Gillis

Although he committed his life to Christ at the age of 19, Scott was introduced to the relevance of the creation/evolution issue when a friend, who was also a paleontologist, demonstrated to him how scientic evidence made more sense when interpreted in the light of the Bible’s clearly written account of history. This ignited a blaze of desire to get answers to tough questions that had plagued his mind for years.With his own worldview and his relationship to Christ energized, Scott now uses the evidence for Creation to change hearts and minds for Christ with easy-to-understand presentations that uphold the authority of God’s Word. Scott’s desire is to similary equip others to be ready with answers (1 Peter 3:15) to impact their world. Scott developed curriculum and teaches an eight week interactive, academic apologetics course aimed toward High School and College age students.

Scott holds a B.A. in Religious Studies from Oregon State University and was the Vice President of the Creation Society of Sonoma County. Before joining CMI full-time, he served in various capacities for over 25 years as a youth pastor, council member,teacher, speaker, and was a key leader on a church plant team launching one of the newest fellowships in his region.

Scott recently relocated from Northern California to Atlanta, GA with his wife, Lisa, to work full-time for Creation Ministries International (US). They have 4 adult children.
