Meet The Staff
Rev. Scott Rhyno - Lead Pastor
Rev. Scott Rhyno has been part of Waterline Church since 2016. With a B.A. in Ministry and an M.A. in Pastoral Theology, Scott was ordained in 2008. He is an entrepreneurial and spiritually-sensitive leader with a heart for discipleship and true worship. Scott is married to Elizabeth, and they have three young adult children. Having worked previously as a VP of Enrolment and Development at Kingswood University, and then as Chief Development Director at The Wesleyan Church, it was natural for him to step in to a pastoral role as Waterline entered a season of transition toward a new Lead Pastor. While serving as Interim Pastor, Scott received a clear call from the Lord to candidate as the permanent Lead Pastor. Following extensive interviews, prayer, and a membership vote, Pastor Scott was welcomed as the new Lead Pastor in May 2021.
