Pastor Scott Schaefer has been involved in music most of his life as both a vocalist and an instrumentalist. After graduating Geneseo High School, he attended Blackhawk College to study voice training under Jim Parks, and is now in the Alumni Hall of Fame there. In 1994, he was hired as the Worship Arts Pastor at Heritage Wesleyan Church and served in that position for nearly 14 years. He has been privileged to lead praise in many settings throughout the Quad Cities and beyond such as the QC Prayer Breakfasts, Believing Prayer Conferences, Crisis Pregnancy Center Banquets, Christian Friendliness Banquets and FCA Banquets, Night to Honor Israel, National Day of Prayer and ISI Men’s Conferences, etc. Alongside being the founder and an instructor of the One Voice Leadership Academy, he continues to serve at the church that he planted as the music minister and not only loves to teach and consult with teams but practice what he preaches as he continues to serve the local church!
