Igniting a passion for Jesus in New England

Scott Rupff

Scott’s mother led him to Christ at age 5, and he has felt the Lord’s firm grip on his life ever since. Humbled by the Lord’s compassion for sinners, Scott seeks to consistently glorify God and enjoy Him forever. “I’m not the man of God that I aspire to be,” said Scott, “but my relationship with Him continues to deepen, and I remain hopeful that God will continue to mold me more into the likeness of Christ. In the meantime, I place my trust in the One who loves me despite my stumblings and bumblings, and who is my closest friend in life.”

As a former chairman of the Elder Board, Scott has returned to serve as vice chairman. “Eldership offers the opportunity for greater spiritual growth and accountability,” said Scott. “It also challenges one’s thinking on weighty spiritual matters, stretches one’s comfort zone in Christ, and affords one the opportunity to minister to the lost, hurting and broken-hearted.”

Scott, who was born and raised in Long Island, now resides in Southbury with his wife Jennifer and their four sons. The Rupffs started attending Walnut Hill in 1998. Scott, who is the Vice President of Marketing, Development and Commercial Operations for Iroquois Pipeline Operating Company, serves in Walnut Hill’s Special Needs ministry. Previously, he has helped out in the children’s ministry and has played the trumpet in the orchestra. Jennifer has served in AM/FM, MOPS and the care ministry.

In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family, exercising and attending his sons’ sports activities.
