Unorthodox Real Deal – An Interview with Scott Ferrell

Growing up, Scott Ferrell was an authentic Golden Child, at least in the eyes of his Sunday School teachers. Scott accepted Jesus at five-years-old, grew up in a solid Christian home, and would eagerly share Jesus with other little kids.

But, when he moved to California at 16, everything changed.

Here are just a few of the highlights of Scott’s story:

  • From age 16 to 23, Scott jumped into drugs, alcohol & women
  • In 1987, he checked himself into rehab and it made sense
  • After 10 years of sobriety, he would say he was a “Clean & Sober good guy… but with a bad attitude”.
  • Scott walked back into church and felt like he never left
  • Today, Scott is trying to be useful everyday for Jesus
  • He created the Iron Sharpens Iron Garage
  • Who comes to the Garage? Pastors, Bikers, everyday guys – guys who are real!
  • Scot shares his thoughts on dealing with men: Getting real, fakes & frauds
  • He sees himself “living in a different mission field” than many expect
  • Scott’s favorite Bible verse:
    • Whatever you do,whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)
    • In other words, whatever you do, do it for God – your actions, your attitude, your words… live it!
  • Everything we do needs to be for God
  • Advice for guys wanting to lead men:
    • Pray first
    • Get to know the rules & regulations for their culture
    • Be super respectful – it’s their world you are just visiting
    • Build authentic friendships

This is just part of Scott’s story. You’ve got to hear what God has done throughout his life to mold him into the man he is today – an authentic, genuine, real deal who serves Jesus!
