Scot Sherman is the executive director of Newbigin House of Studies in San Francisco and teaching pastor at City Church San Francisco (RCA). He teaches worship, theology and urban missiology within Newbigin House’s partnership for theological education with Western Theological Seminary, Holland, MI.   Scot oversees the Newbigin Fellowship, a 9-month intensive Christian leadership development program; hosts Conversations for the Common Good, an arts and ideas speaker series; and co-hosts the Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute held annually at Cambridge University.

Scot was one of the original pastors of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, planted the Village Church in Greenwich Village, and later served as the Pastor of Intown Community Church in Atlanta. His doctoral dissertation focused on the early ecumenical influence of the British missionary-theologian Lesslie Newbigin, a pioneer in thinking through the challenges facing churches in the contemporary West. Scot lives with his wife, Catherine, and they have four sons. He loves opera, detective fiction, playing the piano, and goes wine tasting as often as possible.
