News — 12th May 2018

In March, 2018, Tim and Jessy Anne Scott arrived from the United States to volunteer in the Marketing Department at Nazarene Theological College.

“Getting to do work that we’re passionate about and getting to use the skills we’ve been developing at college and through our careers as volunteer is really exciting for us,” said Tim. “We’re glad to use the talents God’s given us in a way of service.”

Tim and Jessy Anne are from Nashville, Tennessee where they attended Trevecca Nazarene University. Tim studied Mass Media and Film, while Jessy Anne studied Communications and Journalism.

“Seeing how God brought us together, a guy from the middle of nowhere Ohio and a girl from a small town outside of Boston, at a little school in Nashville, it’s easy to see how He might use us in some crazy ways,” said Jessy Anne. “Like traveling across the world to volunteer.”

Tim has worked as a photographer and videographer in various roles, including freelance. Jessy Anne has worked as a content assistant, social media manager and content manager.

After college the couple worked in the Marketing Departments at Trevecca Nazarene University and Eastern Nazarene College.

“We’re just trying to work at all the Nazarene schools we can,” joked Tim. “But we are excited to take what we’ve learned at each place and use it as we move forward.”

The couple are planning on being at NTC for a year, helping to share the work and mission of the College with potential new students, alumni and more.

“It’s great getting to experience a new place and culture and meet new people,” said Tim. “Getting here was kind of a whirlwind, but we’ve had time to explore and get used to everything and we really like it here.”

Tim explained how having backgrounds in marketing and having moved a few times over the last year has made the transition fairly easy.

“There hasn’t been much culture shock,” said Jessy Anne. “Growing up in Boston may have helped that, everything feels kind of familiar in a weird way and everyone has been so welcoming to us.”
