Scott Buchanan

Senior Pastor

Bio: I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of 24 and entered into ministry at the age of 35. After completing my studies at Southern Wesleyan University, I began pastoring in Chesnee, SC. After almost 17 years of service I am still as determined to win the lost to Jesus Christ.

Approach to Ministry: I believe the greatest resource the church has is its people. With this in mind, I see ministry as an opportunity to train lay people based on the great commission that all of us are to go and make disciples. I love to see people develop and incorporate their faith into their daily lives for the sake of God's Kingdom. When we work together as a team, great things will be accomplished for Christ.

Impact: My hope is that if our church, CenterPoint Wesleyan, was removed from this earth it would be greatly missed and long remembered. It is my desire to see us make a difference in many areas of community life in Laurens through our service projects and our outreach events.

Additional Info: I have been married 27 wonderful years and have four daughters, three grandsons, and one granddaughter. I enjoy fishing, playing golf and just hanging out with people.

Director of Music and Worship

Student Ministries Director

Bio: I have been in a relationship with the Lord as long as I can remember. I have been a pastor's wife for 17 years, in youth ministry for 13 years, and in music ministry for over 17 years. My greatest desire is to live out the love of Christ everyday! I am passionate about leading others into a meaningful relationship with Christ that will manifest into relationships that reach others who will reach others until the whole world has opportunity to know Christ.

Approach to ministry: I believe that God desires to have a relationship with every person, a relationship that changes us from the inside out. I also believe God has given every believer a mission field that is ripe for harvesting. In following the example of Christ, I believe it is the responsibility of the church to teach, those who will listen, about who God is and what He desires and requires from each of us. As "The Church", we are responsible to show Jesus- the Real Jesus- to people by living His love in tangible, practical ways, accompanied by relevant, accurate Biblical teaching.

Impact: I hope that CenterPoint Wesleyan Church will impact our community by giving every man, woman, and child the opportunity to experience the unconditional, unceasing, powerful love of Christ through community service and outreach, Christian fellowship, and discipleship. I also hope that those who find their way through the doors of CenterPoint find a place where they are welcomed, loved, encouraged, equipped, and challenged.

Additional Info: I feel very blessed to have been married to my wonderful husband, Scott, for 27 years; to be the mother of four beautiful girls; to be the mother-in-law to three awesome sons-in-laws; and to be the proud grandmother of three grandsons and one granddaughter. I experience the most joy when I am sharing life with others.
