“When God calls you to be an evangelist, you can’t do anything else…”
As a young boy delivering papers in a small town in Missouri, Scott Nute had no idea God had an amazing calling for his life.
Growing up as the child of an alcoholic father and as the victim of childhood sexual abuse, Scott searched for ways to numb his pain. His adolescent years saw him engaging in self-destructive behaviors before coming to Christ as a freshman in college. After a short stint as a minor-league baseball player, Scott surrendered to God’s call to be an evangelist, dedicating his life to sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As an adult, Scott has spent more than two decades working through the pain of the emotional and psychological wounds he suffered as a boy. Though the recovery process has been long and difficult, God has been faithful to bring Scott to a place of healing. As a portrait of redemption that only God can paint, Scott’s wounds have become an integral part of his ministry as he reaches out to help others who are hurting.
Scott’s story of redemption and recovery serves as a vivid reminder that God often chooses to use broken lives so His glory can shine more fully through the scars.
