Scott Conrad, assistant administrator at Boys Ranch Town, Edmond, since September 2001, was named administrator for Baptist Children’s Home, Oklahoma City, effective December 1, 2013. In 1999, Scott and his wife Patty, a special education teacher, accepted the call to Boys Ranch Town as associate houseparents, where Scott was also a caseworker.
Scott received his Social Work degree from the University of Oklahoma and went on to earn his Marriage and Family Therapy License after completing his Master’s degree at Oklahoma Baptist University.
His call to minister to those in need included work as a shelter counselor, day treatment mental health technician with High Pointe, caseworker with Big Brothers Big Sisters and a day treatment therapist with Norman Regional Hospital.
Scott and Patty have been married since 1994. In 2002 they were honored to begin raising their two nephews, Colton and Parker, and several years later were abundantly blessed with two sons, Hudson and Noah. They have been members of Henderson Hills Baptist Church since 1999 where Scott has served as a Deacon and an assistant small group leader.
In his free time, Scott enjoys running, bicycling, camping, and working in his backyard.
Scott’s desire is to be a part of Christ’s ministry to, “preach the good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve; to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair” (Isaiah 61:1-4). He believes that OBHC is the perfect organization to live out Christ’s ministry.
