Dr. Scott and Leah Silverii share seven kids, and two French bulldogs named Bacon and Beignet (aka Benny). A highly decorated law enforcement career promptly ended in 2015 when God called Scott out of public service and into His service.
God’s word to Scott was, “Son, you’ve spent your career locking men up. Now commit your life to setting them free.” He retired his career on that very day. The Chief admits that leading people to Christ is more exciting than the twelve years he spent undercover, sixteen years in SWAT, and five years as chief of police combined.
Leah enjoyed ten years of teaching before becoming a full-time writer and bestselling author. A native of Texas and graduate of TCU, her passion for the home and nurturing others drives her calling to ministry. An accomplished teacher, Leah’s heart for God’s Word serves as an anchor for the women she mentors along their faith walk.
Scott, who has earned a Master of Public Administration, a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology and post-doctoral seminary hours was called to plant a church in 2016. Exclusive to online ministry, the church combated the negative influences reigning over social media.
In 2021, Scott and Leah stepped out in obedience and faith to plant a church community that had grown out of their home ministry. Five Stones Church in Dallas County, Texas began hosting services and Bible studies in January 2022.
Scott continues discipling men in person and remotely as guided by his north star Scripture: “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” (1 Corinthians 16:13-14)
Scott and Leah love the Lord and the passion He’s placed on their hearts for ministering to people. An experienced speaker, mentor and confidential accountability partner, Scott is available for workshops, conferences and churches. He and Leah operate a nonprofit Christian publishing house that helps people share their stories with the world. Contact Five Stones Press for more information.
