Tyler & Erika Scott


Hello! We are Tyler and Erika Scott, and we have two daughters, Makenna and Everly. We are full time missionaries in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

We both grew up as missionary kids in Bangladesh and Thailand. If you would have told us that we would be doing ministry work ten years ago, we would have laughed. Ministry work was not something that we desired until The Lord changed our hearts in 2014 and we are blessed that He did!

Being prompted by The Holy Spirit and confirmed by several individuals, we started a house church in November 2020. We came together seeking a real, authentic Christian community. Before the first church service, The Lord had made it clear to me to never put a time limit on church and allow The Holy Spirit to decide when it is over. The first month, our services would end around 12am and after that 3am became a frequent end time. Along with that, He told me that in order for this church to succeed, it must be founded on prayer and worship.

After several months of seeing The Lord move in all of our hearts, we knew something was special - it was the presence of The Lord. We all gathered in one accord. We came hungry and expecting to "eat" what The Lord had prepared for us each week. There is a saying that we have in our church that sums up much of the values: hunger, humility, honor, and vulnerability. Those values have attributed to the heart posture of all the members at our church.

It was not until around February 2021 when Erika and I started to feel called to move our church to Saint Petersburg, Florida. After much prayer and confirmation from individuals and things The Lord was showing us, it became clear He was calling us to bring our church down from Minnesota to Florida and we moved in September 2021.

In a vision The Lord gave me in 2014, I saw a city being turned upside down. As it was being turned upside down, I began to ask The Lord why it was being turned upside down. He said because this city lives contrary to how the world lives. It is a Kingdom city with Kingdom values. Among the things that I saw that caused this city to turn upside down was house churches coming up in this city and spreading, Kingdom businesses focused on sowing into revival, discipleship centers, internships producing Jesus lovers, outdoor revivals, etc. I have wondered for nearly eight years what that city in my vision was. It is my belief that the city that I saw in the vision is Saint Petersburg (which is in The Bay of the Holy Spirit - original name of Tampa Bay). After talking with other leaders in this city, it is clear to me that The Lord has very big plans here.

We are continuing to Pastor our church and have dedicated our house to full time ministry. Our master bedroom is a dedicated ministry prayer room/office and our house is always open for ministry. We are believing that The Lord will provide a discipleship/church training center that will help be the catalyst to start many more house churches throughout this city and region. But as it says in Zechariah 4:10, "Do not despise humble beginnings..." We have remained small for over a year and will continue to refine the DNA of this ministry so that when it is time to expand we will be ready.

Would you consider supporting our family prayerfully and financially to help turn Saint Petersburg upside down and turn it into a city of The Lord?
