Scott Stroud was born and raised in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Due to an unstable family life, he moved twenty-seven times as a child. Early on he became involved with theft and drinking leading to an armed robbery in 1991, resulting in a four-year prison sentence. He became a Christian during his time there and upon his release began to minister to those still in prison. He was a barber for 20 years, owning a shop in North Minneapolis for 12 years. In his late 30s he felt that God was calling him to pastoral ministry. He attended the Free Lutheran Seminary in Plymouth, Minnesota and has since served in Salinas, California and now Elim. In his free time, Scott loves to golf, bake, and read.
