Samuel Scott Lee, the first of three children, was born to Mr. and Mrs. R. Sam Lee of Fort Smith, Arkansas, on May 7, 1963. He came to faith in Christ in the summer of 1981 shortly after graduating from High School. In 1984, while earning a degree in chemistry from Arkansas Tech University, Scott met and married Ms. Amy Hughes of Benton, Arkansas. The young couple moved to Fort Worth, Texas immediately after graduation in 1985, so Scott could attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. While in seminary he was Manager of Research for the O.A. Battista Research Institute and, with Amy, was heavily involved in Beautiful Feet Outreach Ministry, working with the homeless of Fort Worth. While in Seminary, he and Amy had the joy of bringing two daughters into the world: Stephanie (1987) and Kimberly (1990). After graduation, the family moved to Arnold, MO (1991) where Scott pastors Rockport Baptist Church, as well as teaching locally for Missouri Baptist University and internationally for HeartCry Missionary Society.
