About Scott Hinkle

Scott Hinkle, an evangelist, once lived a life that pointed to only one direction…prison and ultimately an early grave. In a parking lot Scott's life was drastically rearranged as he was told of and experienced the life transforming power of Jesus Christ.

Today, this one time Jewish, heroin addict raised on the Jersey Shore, is leading a charge with a direct and radical message that is having profound effects for the kingdom of God across our nation. He has been known for his practical, challenging and sometimes humorous Bible based messages.

Along with his wife Nancy, they founded Scott Hinkle Outreach Ministries. In 1984, a grass roots revolution began through their "National Street Ministries Conference" (A Passion for Souls), which has trained and ministered to thousands of evangelistic workers, leaders and pastors through the years.

Scott, an author of two books, has also written a column for Charisma Magazine. He has been a church planter; served as a senior pastor and an adjunct teacher of evangelism as well as developed and directed the groundbreaking 3rd Year Evangelism Major at Christ For The Nations Institute.

Beyond conducting rallies, outreaches and conferences they lead an annual multifaceted evangelistic invasion of the Mardi Gras in New Orleans and have recently established a ministry base in Los Angeles.

Their ministry continually stretches across geographic, social, age and cultural lines. Scott and Nancy are married with two children. They are both graduates of Christ For The Nations Institute and are ordained ministers. As a family and ministry they were a part of Phoenix First Assembly (now Dream City Church) pastored by Tommy Barnett in Phoenix, Arizona.

About Nancy J. Hinkle

Nancy Hinkle is a contagiously joy-filled, insightful, wise woman and teacher, who sprinkles humor and practical insight for living throughout her message. A popular speaker for women's conferences, meetings and retreats, as well as a contributor for the "Women of Destiny" Bible, she shares candidly about her journey through a drug-addicted life, a battle with cancer, prodigal children and the healing and restoration of relationships. Often you will find Nancy's story spilling over the four walls of the church and into the streets, ministering to some of the most desperate, fragile, broken souls that most people might easily avoid.

She and her husband Scott founded Scott Hinkle Outreach Ministries in 1981 and have had the privilege of ministering together in outreaches, crusades and conferences in the US and abroad. They were also directors of two Christian rehabilitation homes for drug-addicted women and have ministered on the streets of such cities as New Orleans, New York, San Francisco and Hollywood.In addition, they have served as church planters. With this wonderful variety of ministry experiences both inside and outside the church, Nancy brings a heart full of love, compassion and understanding to any group to which she may minister. Nancy lives in Dallas, TX with her husband Scott and enjoys being a mother and grandmother to her fabulous family.

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus--the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
