  • Scott Davis

    Scott Davis

    Lead Pastor

    After growing up in Ft. Lauderdale, Scott met his wife Marcie at college in North Carolina. And it’s been happily ever after since then! They’ve had a wonderful time enjoying how God has added to their family. Scott and Marcie have four children: Chloe, Kylie, Caleb, and Colin who have added much joy to their life. 

    Prior to serving at Northside, Scott has served churches in Florida, North Carolina, and Kentucky. While completing master’s and doctoral degrees, Scott served as the Director of Recruiting and Admissions at the flagship seminary of the Southern Baptist Convention, helping to lead expansion in the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral enrollments at that historic institution. 

    Training and experience have built a strong commitment to the local church into Scott’s heart and he is passionate about helping people discover the immense joy to be had in being a follower of Christ. Scott seeks to be a passionate communicator of God’s Word, to encourage people on to serious discipleship, and to foster a love for the Gospel that seeks to spread the name of Jesus both locally and internationally.


Our staff

  • Colton guffey


    Colton, a native of Rock Hill, attended North Greenville University where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. While living in Greenville, SC, he met his wife Holly and somehow convinced her to marry him. They currently have one son, Theodore, who was born in October of 2019. 

    Colton is also on faculty at Providence Classical School of Rock Hill where he teaches Latin, Ancient History, Literature, and Christian Studies. He has a passion for teaching God's truth both in the classroom and through leading our congregation in worship through song. 

    He is very thankful for a son who is calmed by his singing and guitar playing as it makes practice a two birds, one stone situation.  


  • Joel Talley


    Joel is a native of Asheville, NC. Growing up the son of a pastor, he lived in North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. Joel is a 1986 graduate of Winthrop University, where he met his wife, Michele Berry Talley, of Columbia, SC.
