NL Moore & Associates is pleased to announce the selection of Pastor Scott Foster as the new Executive Pastor at The Grove Church in Maple Grove, Minn. (

Scott comes to The Grove Church from Bethany Church in Long Beach, CA, a 700-member church where he has served for the past 18 years, most recently as the Interim Senior Pastor, and prior to that, as Executive Pastor. Scott is a well-rounded, experienced leader who is a strong communicator with spiritual gifts in the areas of leadership, teaching and administration. He is excited to utilize these gifts and strengths at The Grove Church.

Scott received his Master of Theology and Biblical Studies from Talbot School of Theology in 2005, and his Bachelor of Science degree from Biola University (1993).

Scott and his wife Erica have three children: Claire (5), Charlotte (3) and Quinn (seven months old). Scott is originally from California, but his wife Erica is a native Minnesotan who has family in the region. They are excited to make Minnesota their home.

NL Moore & Associates is honored to have been a part of this important process, and we wish the Foster family and The Grove Church God’s richest blessing as they launch into ministry together!
