In this episode, Rev. Kim Ingram talks with Rev. Scott Osterberg. Growing up in a non-church going family in Texas, he never thought he’d be a minister when he headed to Duke for seminary. His life and journey in ministry have presented challenges and devastating loss. Eight years ago, Scott’s renegade spirit led him to start New Story Church in Winston-Salem. Through all of these experiences, Scott has learned about leadership, service, and faith. Sometimes the hard way. In this episode of Means of Grace, we hear Scott’s story and discover how we can become renegades in ministry too.
