Pastor Scottie F. Torain has an unusually charismatic, fire baptized and provocative preaching style that is uniquely and intensely his own. Truly anointed of God, his approach to the gospel of Jesus Christ beckons the soul of the lost and speaks to the heart of people from all walks of life. From the pulpit, he has an uncanny ability to speak the truth in love while sharing from the depths of his own heart with realness that appeals to the churched and unchurched alike. His messages are painfully clear and rich with poetic commentary, startling insights, and contemporary applications of the Bible's timeless message. His ministry exhibits the power of a prayer filled life and encourages those who hear him to seek God for a deeper level of intimacy with Him.
