New Hope Pastoral Staff


About Pastor Miles Scott

Miles was born and raised in a Christian family in Modesto, CA. He professed his faith in Jesus and was baptized at a very early age. As he grew up, he faced many life experiences that both challenged and strengthened his faith. After attending Modesto Christian High School, Miles earned a basketball scholarship to attend Holy Names University in Oakland, CA.

After graduating from college, he realized he had a calling to work with the youth. Miles gained most of his “hands-on” ministry experience as a teacher at Big Valley Christian school in his hometown of Modesto, where he taught Middle School P.E., coached boy’s basketball and helped lead missionary youth trips to the Dominican Republic, Africa, and San Francisco. After spending 8 years at Big Valley, he felt God calling him to move to San Diego, CA where he and his wife led the sports ministry at New Hope Community Church. Now as the Student Ministries Pastor, Miles’ main goal at New Hope is to bring students closer to Jesus through relationship-building and Bible teaching.

Miles married Serina Scott in November of 2013 and has a  three year-old daughter named Arabella. He enjoys spending time with his family and truly has a passion for the youth of this world. Pastor Miles loves to take any opportunity to share God’s love and purpose with us. He is truly thankful to serve as Student Ministries Pastor at New Hope and looks forward to what the future holds.
