Scott Hodge, Music Evangelist

Scott Hodge is a lifetime musician and church pastor who lives in Lee County, SC, with his wife, Susan, and their two children, Isaac and Zoe. He has been the Senior Pastor of St. Andrew Church of God in Camden, SC since October of 2018.

Growing up an “Army Brat” in a musical family, Scott moved a lot until finally settling down in West Virginia in 1977, after his dad retired from the military. During those years he could often be found singing and playing music in school groups, and also with his three older brothers and one younger sister. For a while they traveled and sang in a family southern gospel group called Spring Creek Station, in which, literally, “Daddy sang bass...” He served in the U.S. Army himself, and during those years he alternately played keyboard, piano, guitar and drums in several incarnations of a band in Germany that went from R&B, Gospel, Rock, to Jazz Fusion. After his military years, he then spent some time writing songs, traveling, singing, and recording music with several groups over the years, until he felt called into preaching/pastoring ministry in 1998.

Music continues to be a passion of Scott’s, and he loves working with people of all ages who are just discovering the ways in which Jesus and His teachings, and His music can enhance their lives.

Jeff Valentine, Youth Evangelist

My name is Jeff Valentine, and I'm the Senior Pastor/Youth Pastor at Landmark First Church of God in Princeton, WV. I've been a YP for over 12 years, and I absolutely love it! I was honored to lead the Youth Programming for Summer Celebration last year, & am so stoked that I was asked to come back! I love my family: my wife Lauren, our 2 boys Grayson & Ollie, and our pups Max & Milo, and I had to get their permission to come out this year, but they said, "No", so I brought them with me! You might see them hanging around. I have delusions of being a rock star, so if you can't find me hanging with the students or on the basketball court, you might find me trying to sneak in to worship band practice. Summer Celebration this year will be awesome, and I can't wait to see you there!

Jeff
