Dr. Scott G. Downing has served in full-time ministry for 30+ years. He is currently serving on the pastoral staff at First Baptist Church Atlanta, GA. Dr. Downing’s passion is to help the church understand biblical prophecy and its impact on culture, business, family and individuals. The first avenue of accomplishing this is through weekly bible studies such as “Engage” on Wednesday nights and Sunday Morning Bible Study at First Atlanta. The second avenue of accomplishing this passion is prayerfully achieved through writing timely discipleship curriculum such as his most recent book: God’s Unfolding Purpose and Unfailing Power. The third avenue is through speaking engagements, where Dr. Downing breaks down potentially complicated prophetic and theological concepts into modern, understandable terms. The fourth and final avenue of pursing this passion comes through the simple commitment to post seasonable and applicable content to this site as well as publishing a bi-monthly email newsletter by the same name, Prophecy In Perspective.
Dr. Downing earned his undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Religion from Florida International University, Miami, Florida; his Master of Divinity degree from Colombia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia; and his Doctorate of Ministry from Luther Rice Seminary, Lithonia, Georgia.
In addition to being a student of God’s Word, communicator and pastor, Dr. Downing is a loving husband, father and grandfather.
