Lead Singer: Scott Rennie
Scott became a Christian in December 2000, a journey that started when he was 18 and ended when he was around 27. He went from an upbringing in staunch atheism to realising that if there really was a God, he could surely guide to whomever his messenger was. After a few amazing encounters he guided Scott straight into the arms of the one and only Saviour Jesus Christ. Scott joined Origin in 2011 and has been a lead singer with the Foot Stomping Gospel Band and our PRODIGAL production since 2016.
