A former gang member and drug dealer, Tommie Scott grew up with an abusive father who was constantly in and out of jail. Aged just 12, he was initiated into a faction of the Crips, one of the most violent gangs in the US. He spent years trapped in a cycle of crime and jail-time. Despite this legacy of violence, he eventually became a Christian during a stint in prison. Tommie accepted a call to give his life to Jesus, and began ministering to other men in the jail himself, leading Bible studies and prayer. He saw many more once-violent men come to faith.
Now out of jail and completely reformed, He is passionate about sharing the Gospel, and now leads an outreach for at-risk youth in Las Vegas as well as speaking at and training schools to deal with gang warfare and drug awareness. He wants to show young people that they need not be a part of an endless cycle of violence – Jesus offers a better way.
