Scott Venable

Director of Northwood Church Planting & Chicago City Center // Pastor of Glocal Impact

Scott Venable

Scott and his wife Ashley moved to Chicago from Denton, TX in the fall of 2010 to make disciples and engage the community of the Wicker Park area. Out of this community involvement, New City emerged as a Multi-Ethnic church. After New City Church Chicago turned a year old, God gave them the opportunity to begin planting more churches and investing in the lives of young church planters to implement the same Kingdom DNA Scott was trained in by Bob Roberts, Jr. Thus, Release Initiative was born.

Scott has been pastoring in churches since 1999. He and his wife love to spend time with friends and family and enjoy sports, reading, and traveling. Scott also has a speaking/teaching ministry where he travels and speaks at camps, schools, retreats, and churches across the country. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Leadership in a Multi-Ethnic Context.

Scott’s role now is the Glocal Impact Pastor at Northwood Church in Keller, TX. After planting New City Church in Chicago and leading them to plant 10 other churches, Scott and Ashley have moved back to Texas to lead church planting at Northwood, be a teaching Pastor, lead out in all local and global engagement, and mobilize the church to engage in multi-faith work.
