He was an exceptional Quarterback in HS and earned a scholarship at Georgia Military College. Scott’s career plans were to be HS Football Coach in Georgia, but God had other plans. After a severe car accident, Scott experienced a call
to ministry.

Dr. Murphy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Louisiana Baptist University; a Master of Sacred 
Literature in Practical Ministry & Counseling from 
Louisville Bible College; a Master of Divinity from
Phillips Theological Seminary; a Certificate in Theology
& Ministry from Princeton Theological Seminary at Princeton University; he started his doctoral work
at Asbury Theological Seminary then transferred to Luther Rice University & Seminary and eventually earned a Doctor of Ministry with a specialization in Pastoral Counseling at Columbia Seminary. Dr. Murphy was ordained by the American Baptist Churches, USA.
