Scott Anderson has a special message. He was born in 1970 with cerebral palsy in San Diego, California, but due to an unrelenting spirit, his physical challenges only serve as a catalyst for the unique style of speaking that draws many to rediscover themselves and learn how to cope with a sometimes “not so fair” world.
Scott has been in a wheelchair for most of his life. His early years at home weren’t much comfort, with the multiple divorces, domestic violence, suicide and drug use occurring there. Looking back, Scott really should have been bitter, angry and disgusted at life.
Instead, Scott embraces his life and uses each challenge as a springboard to help people. Through a positive outlook, tenacity and above all, a deep faith in Jesus, he has overcome a lifetime of barriers to become a dynamic speaker. Scott uses his unique blend of humor, life experiences, multimedia and deep insights to guide people to experience joy and purpose despite their circumstances.
Scott has spoken all over the United States and in over 25 countries at public schools, churches, conventions, rallies, business meetings, government functions and even to the Chinese Army in Beijing. Scott has also shared the stage with Hollywood stars such as Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Ron Rifkin (Alias), and David Hasselhoff (America’s Got Talent). After one of Scott’s presentations, a viewer remarked, “Today's generation needs to witness less frill and entertainment and spend more time with genuine people like Scott." Scott’s presentation will reach people of all ages in your audience with the message of hope in Christ; he might even reach some that no one else can.
"Scott Anderson was a hit with our ministry. Not only was he an excellent speaker and communicator, he made a point to find out how he could work with what God was already doing here at Trinity. His message was powerful; we had at least 11 or 12 first time commitments to Christ! He was funny, exciting and delivered a powerful and relevant message to people who are feeling the pressure of our times. I received many emails thanking us for having Scott at Trinity. I would gladly recommend him to anyone. We will definitely be having him back!" - Pastor of Worship and Creative Arts, Trinity Church
