Rev. Dr. Scott Carnes

Rev. Scott Carnes arrived at Abingdon in Summer of 2019 and quickly fell in love with the people of this church and the surrounding community.  During his first year of ministry he completed his doctor of ministry in preaching and has led the congregation through the uncharted territory of pandemic.

Scott has often spoken of his greatest joys coming, not from organized church events, from the pulpit, or administrative activities...but from the community.  He loves to be out in Abingdon, especially with his family.


His wife, Rev. Carrie Carnes, is also a pastor who is currently serving at Trinity Lutheran Church in Galesburg.  Scott and Carrie have a two year-old son who is full of energy and smiles.  They love to be in the outdoors, especially on trails.

If you would like to connect with Rev. Carnes, join him for his out-of-the-office hours or call the church office to arrange a time to drop by the church to ensure he'll be there!
