An 80 percent hearing loss and speech impediment doesn’t discourage Scott Blanchard from remaining committed to his calling.
As a church planter and pastor of Lakepointe Church in Detroit, Scott uses his disability to encourage and connect with others. He proves each day that God can use anyone who is willing to be His servant.
Scott’s passion for church planting is firmly planted in the belief that reaching more people with the gospel is about multiplying churches. As such, Scott is investing in the lives of church plant interns and apprentices like Jimmy Jones, who will be planting a new church just 20 minutes from Lakepointe so more seeds can be sown in the Detroit area.
