Senior Pastor | Pastor Scott Basolo
Pastor Scott grew up in the Northwest, being born in Montana and growing up in the ski resort community of Sun Valley, Idaho. After completion of High School, Scott went on to pursue his education at the University of Idaho receiving degrees in both Architecture and Structural Engineering. At the completion of his college education he met the love of his life, Karyn, whom he has been married to for over 20 years. After college, Scott began a career in Structural engineering which he pursued for 20 years and which the Lord used mightily in he and Karyn’s lives. During this time Scott received his Professional Engineering license and his Structural Engineering license and has been licensed in California, Idaho, Hawaii, Montana, and Utah to practice engineering.
Shortly after the birth of their sons, Averyl and Peter, the Lord graciously swept Scott off his feet and into His kingdom as He blessed Scott with salvation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Having worked much with the local Boy Scout troop as former Eagle Scout, Scott immediately began working with the youth at Calvary Bible Church in Hailey where he was saved. The Lord moved mightily the work of His Word in Pastor Scott’s life and within a few years time he was working with the youth extensively, teaching Sunday school and frequently preaching at Calvary Bible and other locations. Another local church asked Scott to consider being their pastor when he realized his need for further training and moved to California to attend The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, California.
During this time at seminary, he was honored to serve in ministry at Grace Community Church to the Sojourners Fellowship group. He and Karyn made life-long friends at Grace, while gleaning much experience from the pastors and people in this wonderful group. Following his graduation from seminary with a Master of Divinity, Pastor Scott was blessed to receive the call to pastor at Santa Clarita Baptist Church (SCBC) in 2008 and he continues in this most gracious and exciting ministry. Pastor Scott was formally ordained to the Gospel Ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ in November of 2010 and continues his educational pursuits of a Masters of Theology at The Master’s Seminary. As Senior Pastor Scott oversees all the ministries of SCBC, provides counseling services and disciples men to fulfill their God-ordained role for His kingdom. He also frequently teaches Sunday school and Bible study classes as well as preaching for both services at SCBC.
It is the passion of Pastor Scott’s life to see people come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and once saved to grow daily in their zeal for Christ. He is ecstatic to see these activities going on in the congregation at SCBC and Santa Clarita Christian School (SCCS). Pastor Scott’s vision for SCCS is that it trains young people to know the Lord Jesus Christ, and to understand that the Bible is a fully sufficient guide for their lives; to provide this foundation and universal underpinning within the context of an excellent academic education such that they leave the school fully prepared spiritually and academically to go on to whatever God has called them to in their lives.
Worship Pastor | Dr. Paul Plew
Dr. Paul T. Plew has been the Pastor of Worship And Music at Santa Clarita Baptist Church since 1992.

On Worship in the Church: “Music in the church has been undergoing change for hundreds of years. However, basic biblical goals have not changed. We recognize that the most important aspect of the worship service is the pre-eminence of the Scripture and the focus on our God. Music must always support the Word and be the servant of our faith.”
In addition to his responsibilities at the church Pastor Plew is also the Chairman of the Music Department and the Director of Choral Activites at The Master’s College, a position he has held since 1979. Prior to coming to the college Dr. Plew was the Music Pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Tacoma, Washington. He is a member of the American Choral Director’s Association, co founder and past president of the Santa Clarita Music Educators Association, and past president of the National Association of Church Musicians (formerly Choral Conductors Guild). Dr. Plew conducts the Collegiate Singers, a one hundred forty voice campus choir, The Master’s Chorale, a 55 member auditioned choir, and Majesty, a small contemporary directions group. He has led these groups on tours to England, Ireland, Russia, Canada, Italy, Israel, Germany, Spain, and virtually every state in the union.
Paul is married to his wife Pamela and they have three grown children and six grandchildren.
