Rev.Dirk Scott
Senior Pastor

Dirk's call to pastoral ministry was a bit unorthodox. When God called him to begin his journey toward ordination, he had just been told by the number-one-ranked doctor in the world and head of endocrinology at the Mayo Clinic that he was dying and would not survive another year. When he told Dena of his call, she was still reeling from his terminal diagnosis and supported his beginning pastoral education because she believed it was his dying wish. Dirk then launched 2nd Chance Ministries, a Nazarene Compassionate Ministry that began feeding and ministering to the homeless in North Idaho.
Fast forward seven years, and Dirk has served as Senior Pastor of Hayden True North Church for the past two years. God gets the glory in this story!

Dirk still serves as Executive Director of 2nd Chance Ministries. Learn more about that ministry: Click Here!

Dirk's favorite quote is, "I don't just believe in miracles, I rely on them."
