Brett McMorris, Youth Pastor
As a Freshman in college God shook me out of pursuing a career in Chemistry and into following His call to minister to adolescents and their families. At the ripe old age of 27 God made it very clear that He was moving me to Scott Valley for His purpose. A month later – April 2002, I moved from the desert to the mountains and God continues to use this very weak man to show His glory. I met Stephanie when she moved here in 2008 and talked her into marrying me ten months later. Our boys – Ian, Caed, Rhys and Declan – have added joy and spice to our lives. Our foster daughter, Crystal, has brought even more enjoyment. My prayer for my family remains that God would show how amazing He is through us. God began to show us a new answer to that prayer when the idea came up to join the youth ministries of Fort Jones Community and Scott Valley Berean. Shortly after that it became clear that it also meant sharing a youth pastor between the two churches. As of January 2014 we have started that adventure, calling it Valley Wide Youth Ministry.
