2018 Fab 40: Pastor Scott McKinney

Meet one of Utah Valley Magazine's 2018 Fab 40


Age: 63

The Journey In 1989, Scott and his family moved to Utah County from California so he could pastor the CenterPoint Church. When they arrived, the church had 30-35 members. In 2006, the church started a long process of selling its old property, building a new church and meeting in high schools during construction. After 10 years, the building was finally complete and Scott’s congregation finally has a permanent place to meet. “A lot of life is finding something worth doing and showing up. It’s about finding something that matters and sticking with it, and then the Lord has a way a of blessing you,” Scott says.

No Road Blocks “Living here has defined us. A lot of people are afraid for their children to be in the minority, but Utah County is the best place in America to raise kids.”

Mile Markers “Being a dad to four children. My wife and I have raised some great kids by the grace of God. I’m most proud of them and my 10 grandkids.”

Vacation Destination “I love Calf Creek Falls in Central Utah. It’s so beautiful.”
