We have great news to share. Scott Newbold has been hired as our new Church Administrator. You may remember about six weeks ago, we welcomed Scott as our Interim Administrator until we could identify a permanent replacement. As Scott began in the interim capacity, it became obvious he was the right person for the job. We are grateful for the SPR moving quickly on this decision. We are also grateful Scott said YES in this season of his life. He is extremely gifted and qualified for this new role. He has already made a positive difference in just a short time!

Scott and his wife Janet are long-time residents of Shalimar and have been members of Shalimar United Methodist Church for 20 years. Scott jokes that many people at Shalimar do not know him but know his children Kirk, Joanna, and Kevin. They are all gifted and have grown up in the church having participated in church dramas and youth musical programs. Scott and Janet primarily attend the 11:00 worship service and have been involved in other capacities.

Scott graduated from Florida State University School of Business with a degree in Marketing. He has spent his twenty-six year career in various levels of management with large defense contractors. He has managed aerospace electronics development and manufacturing contracts for the Air Force, Navy, and Marines.

In getting to know Scott, I find him to be an innovator, dreamer, and entrepreneur. He takes his growth discipleship seriously and is an active participant in our most recent 12x12 discipleship team. Scott is very likable and has spiritual gifts that serve him and others well in his new role.

In his spare time, Scott enjoys remodeling his home. He has also been a tireless support volunteer for the Choctawhatchee Style Marchers and enjoys spending time with his family.

Welcome Scott! On behalf of SPR, Staff, and our church we are so glad to welcome you as our new Church Administrator!
