Scott Gannon is the Worship Arts Pastor at South Daytona Christian Church. Since joining the staff in 2007, Scott and his wife, Rachael, have led our congregation to love Jesus and encouraged us to use our talents to honor and serve our Savior. They love working with the youth, children’s and other ministries of the church. Under Scott’s direction, our worship team and choir have taken the good news of Jesus into the community through events like Christmas in the Park, National Day of Prayer and the Peace for Israel Choir. Scott and Rachael both earned their undergraduate degrees at Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri. Rachael earned her Masters in Vocal Performance at Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Scott worked towards his Masters in Music Education at the University of New Mexico while serving a church and school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their love for classical and contemporary music comes through in our weekly worship experience. Rachael is a wonderfully talented vocalist and pianist and has supported the music ministry in multiple ways. The Gannon’s have found great joy in equipping young men and women to use the musical talents God has given them. They both teach piano and voice lessons at Cuchetti School of Music in Edgewater. They are also members of the National Federation of Music Clubs and their students have been recognized as state-level award winners.
“To me, South Daytona Christian Church is a special place. I love the fact that each person in the congregation sees themselves as a minister. We regularly see people taking care of someone in need. People in our congregation see an opportunity to share the love of Jesus and take it. They don’t wait for a staff member to organize, instead they organize and let the staff know what they are doing. I think this is a great example of what the church is supposed to be. It all flows from our leadership. Pastor Bobby is a great shepherd and a great leader to follow. He is a man of great, Godly integrity. He practices what he preaches and he has a great name in our community. Our elders and deacons are committed to giving their all to advance the purposes of God in our city. All of these factors work together to make a wonderful church to call home!”
