meet pastor scott

Reverend Scott Bostwick is the pastor of the United Methodist Churches of Long Beach Island. Previously, in 1998-1999, Pastor Scott was the youth pastor for the two churches, but July 2020 marks his return as the Senior Pastor. 

Pastor Scott is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, and has served churches along the Jersey Shore for the past two decades, including leading in the recovery efforts in Bay Head following Superstorm Sandy in 2012. Along with his wife Karen, sons Jason and Ryan, and their dog Gracie, Pastor Scott and his family are excited about the unique ministry opportunities on Long Beach Island, as well as the opportunity to bring a sense of community (even if it's online) and hope to a world which is struggling during this season of pandemic. 

If you'd like to chat with Pastor Scott over coffee, feel free to email him at
