Scott Brady is the founding pastor of NewLife Church and feels extremely blessed to serve this remarkable congregation. He grew up in the Des Moines area, graduating from Southeast Polk High School.  He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri and Master’s degree at Moody Graduate School in Chicago.

Scott and his wife, Kim, have been married since 1984 and after an initial ministry in Brooklyn, NY, they have lived in the Des Moines area since 1990. They have been blessed with seven children – six of the seven being born on Sunday morning! They have also been blessed with three grandchildren so far – and are hoping for many, many more! 

In addition to a local part time job, Kim works as a corporate flight attendant, taking executives and entertainers to fascinating places all over the U.S. and the world. During the warmer months, you’ll often find Scott getting beat by someone on the tennis court. 

Scott and Kim enjoy going out with friends, especially to cheer for the St. Louis Cardinals in baseball. Both “bleed” black and gold in college sports – Scott for the Hawkeyes and Kim for the Missouri Tigers. And, increasingly, their kids’ alma maters: TCU, Iowa State, Baylor, Western Illinois, and UNI! 

The Brady’s feel very blessed to be a part of NewLife Church!
