Scott Jacobs

Director of Worship

Scott Jacobs is a worship leader and songwriter from Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Tara, have been married for 15 years and live in Simpsonville with their children, Trey and Hannah. After college, Scott spent a decade touring as a professional gospel music artist. He’s recorded 20 albums and written over 100 songs. In 2005, Scott and Tara felt the Lord leading them to step away from the gospel music industry and begin a full-time, missions driven ministry called Commandment 11. At the onset, most of the band’s engagements involved leading worship at churches, retreats, and youth events. However, in 2007, the Lord began opening up opportunities for them to share the gospel in prisons and rehab centers across the United States. For the last 12 years they have spent 65% of their time ministering in these desperate settings and witnessed countless numbers of inmates and addicts trust Christ as their Lord and Savior. Before joining the staff at Horizon, Scott and his family were members at North Hills Church in Taylors, where Scott served as an elder. He is passionate about helping people grow as worshipers and desires to come alongside other believers to help them discover how their unique gifts can be used to make disciples in the community. His life verse is Philippians 1:6, “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
