Rev. Scott Carr has been the pastor of First Church since July, 1997. He was born and raised in Akron and taught the Word God right here at First Church. He graduated college from Kent State University and has his Master's of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. Prior to coming home to pastor his home church, he served four other Evangelical Congregational Churches in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio. Pastor Carr and his wife, Beth, have two grown children.
Pastor Carr is a diehard Cleveland Indians fan and likes collecting baseball cards and other baseball memorabilia. His passion, though, is seeing people of all ages come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
