Scott Schaeffer - Director of Music
I am happy to serve as the director of music and have been doing so for more than 39 years. It has been a pleasure for me to have grown up at Hope and have had the opportunity to watch the growth of this exciting congregation. I have the joy of working with many talented musicians here at Hope, as well as a congregation willing to grow and experience new ways to worship our Lord, while never losing site of the understanding that we do what we do to the Glory of God! As the psalmist wrote: "Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth"!
I am married to my wife Judy and have 2 children. Matt is married to Amanda and have 2 children, Carter and Jaxon. Becky is married to Jon and have 2 children, Delani and Corbin.
