Scott was saved at the age of 16 after hearing the gospel preached at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church of Kalamazoo, Michigan.
He announced his call to preach when he was 18 and after graduating from High School he attended Texas Baptist Institute-Seminary the fall of 1994. He graduated from Texas Baptist Institute in 1999 and has pastored various churches and missions in the state of Texas since 1998.
His latest pastorate was in Moss Hill, TX from 2008 to 2016.
While pastoring Scott also worked at the local public school district as the hardware software technician in the Technology Department.
Stacie Maness was saved when she was 10 years old while attending Pine Springs Baptist Camp. After she was saved she sought to serve the Lord through teaching in Vacation Bible School, giving devotionals at camp, and teaching Sunday School.
Scott and Stacie met through Stacie’s father, Paul Clark, who also attended classes at Texas Baptist Institute-Seminary. One day in class, Bro. Paul handed Scott a business card and told him, “My daughter would really like to meet you!”
Through that business card, a match was made in heaven.
Recently their son, Joshua Maness, announced his call to preach and will be starting Seminary at Texas Baptist Institute in Henderson, TX beginning in August of 2016. Joshua is a 4th generation preacher following his late maternal grandfathers, James R. Taylor and Clyde Clark, his grandfather Paul Clark, and his father, Scott. He is also following his uncles Jason Clark (Missionary in France) and Justin Bachman who are also preachers.
The 4 oldest children have all been saved and baptized. The younger two have not yet reached an age of accountability.
The Maness Family enjoy playing instruments and singing specials together.
