Hi, I’m Scott Hodge. I am an artist, pastor, activist, and writer. I’m also the lead pastor of The Orchard Community in Aurora, Illinois. We are a ninety year old church with a pretty intriguing story about a painful, yet rewarding journey of change.*
I love to travel and find myself energized the most while spending time exploring the concrete jungles of Chicago, New York City, and Bangkok. I love art, indie music, and great food. And I am extremely thankful for grace.
I am married to an amazing woman named Amanda. We have three children. And my hair is starting to thin.
*That’s just a part of who I am. The rest of Scott Hodge is (as Brennan Manning says) “a bundle of paradoxes and contradictions.”
