A new day has begun at International Church! Scott or Scottland, as his parents actually named him (who names their kid after a country?!), became the Lead Pastor at International in February 2016. He and his Australian wife, Fiona, came with a full array of ministry experience and training. They have four kids: Olivia, Megan, Emmalyn, and Audrey. Scott holds degrees from Denver Seminary and The University of Tampa. He loves sports, reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Scott’s greatest passion in life is to connect people with the life-changing power of the Gospel.
Pastor of Spiritual Life Development
Dennis is originally from Napa, California. He met his wife Vivian whose roots are in Pearl City, while they were both serving in the Philippines as missionaries. They returned from that mission field to serve in Hawaii. Dennis calls himself the “Swiss Army Knife” pastor as he has worn many hats since he began at International in 1996. They are blessed with two children, Hannah and Josiah. Dennis graduated from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo and International College and Graduate School. He loves to participate in and watch different sports. He and Scott share passions for the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team as well as to see people come to faith in Christ and experience life as God meant for us to live it.
