About Scott Hinkle
Scott Hinkle, an evangelist, once lived a life that pointed to only one direction…prison and ultimately an early grave. In a parking lot Scott's life was drastically rearranged as he was told of and experienced the life transforming power of Jesus Christ.
Today, this one time Jewish, heroin addict raised on the Jersey Shore, is leading a charge with a direct and radical message that is having profound effects for the kingdom of God across our nation. He has been known for his practical, challenging and sometimes humorous Bible based messages.
Along with his wife Nancy, they founded Scott Hinkle Outreach Ministries. In 1984, a grass roots revolution began through their "National Street Ministries Conference" (A Passion for Souls), which has trained and ministered to thousands of evangelistic workers, leaders and pastors through the years.
Scott, an author of two books, has also written a column for Charisma Magazine. He has been a church planter; served as a senior pastor and an adjunct teacher of evangelism as well as developed and directed the groundbreaking 3rd Year Evangelism Major at Christ For The Nations Institute.
Beyond conducting rallies, outreaches and conferences they lead an annual multifaceted evangelistic invasion of the Mardi Gras in New Orleans and have recently established a ministry base in Los Angeles.
Their ministry continually stretches across geographic, social, age and cultural lines. Scott and Nancy are married with two children. They are both graduates of Christ For The Nations Institute and are ordained ministers. As a family and ministry they were a part of Phoenix First Assembly (now Dream City Church) pastored by Tommy Barnett in Phoenix, Arizona.
