Dr. Scott J. Teutsch
Scott Teutsch received his undergraduate degrees from Louisiana Tech University. He began ministry while an undergraduate serving as a music/youth pastor at New Sarepta Baptist Church. Upon completion of his undergraduate work, Scott completed both a Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from The New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. While in seminary, Scott pastored Pilgrim’s Rest Baptist Church in Doyline, LA., and the New Sarepta Baptist Church, Sarepta, LA.

Missions became a part of his spiritual DNA.
Scott pastored Eastwood Baptist Church for 21 years. It was during these years that Scott forged ahead helping plant 11 local mission churches, adopt unengaged, unreached people groups, develop the first of its kind Meadowview Missions Incubator, all the while making disciples weekly through personal mentoring and serving as Adjunct Professor for New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
He is married to his high school sweet heart Lisa and they have three children. Lisa teaches a Bridge Class (4 year olds) at Providence Classical Academy in Bossier City, Louisiana. Currently Scott is pastor of the Plain Dealing Baptist Church.
