Pastor Otis was born in 1971 in East Texas. He grew up attending Perry Chapel C.M.E. church in Diboll, TX. During his college years, church was not a part of his life. After graduating from college, Otis moved to Waco to start life as an adult. This new chapter in his life brought about various trials which, eventually, motivated him to rededicate his life to Christ on Easter Sunday, 2000. Otis soon experienced the heartache and brokenness of divorce. Through the help of friends and the love of Christ in his life, he was able to recover. He learned that “though we are broken through different trials and tribulations, by the love of Jesus Christ, we can be made whole.” As a result of the Lord’s healing, Otis was blessed with a wonderful wife, Sherry. Otis and Sherry started attending Calvary Chapel Waco driven by a desire to learn God’s Word verse-by-verse. Otis has a son named David “Tanner” Scott and a step-son named Josh Kirk. The Scott family currently resides in Robinson, TX. Pastor Otis joined the staff of Calvary Waco in 2010.
