Scott Snyder

Lead Pastor

Pastor Scott joined the staff of South Baptist Church in August 2010. He came to us from upstate New York, where he served on the staff of Breesport Baptist Church for 14 years. During that time, Pastor Scott served as the Associate Pastor of Youth and Worship for nine years, and then as Lead Pastor for five years.

Growing up in a pastor’s home, Scott spent several years of his life growing up in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Florida. And it was at the young age of six that Scott made the biggest decision in life, to trust Christ as his personal Savior and Lord.

Upon graduating from high school, Scott enrolled at Clarks Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College), Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania to study for the work of the ministry. He graduated in 1997 with a B.S. in Bible, was ordained in 1999, and completed his Master’s Degree at Baptist Bible Seminary in 2012. Scott’s life and ministry verses can be found in 1 Timothy 1:12-14, which says, “I thank Him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because He judged me faithful, appointing me to His service, though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” (ESV)

God has blessed Scott and his wife Carol with three children: Kayla, Juliana, and Payton.

Eric Parker

Student Ministries Pastor

Pastor Eric has recently joined the staff of South Baptist Church, and he can’t wait to get going in the ministry here! Eric spent most of his growing up years in Lynchburg, Virginia.  Eric finished his Bachelors Degree in Youth Ministry at Liberty University in May of 2018, and has done a year-long internship at CrossLife Church in Oviedo, Florida.  Eric is a Detroit Red Wings fan, and a Indianapolis Colts fan. He loves pizza and working with teens, and we feel like that sets him up well for Youth Ministry at South. 🙂

Romans 8:28 is special to Eric – And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
