Scott & Sunshine Piland

Scott & Sunshine Piland

Scott and Sunny both grew up and lived on farms outside the same small town in Missouri. They were middle school sweethearts, then lost track of each other through high school. They both became Christians in their early twenties and were married in 2002. From the very beginning of their marriage God planted seeds for cross-cultural work through a trip to Northern Nigeria in 2003, which completely opened their eyes to the global need for the gospel. For most of their marriage they lived in Chicago and Louisville, where Scott completed college at Moody, then seminary at Southern and a pastoral internship at Immanuel.

Through many twists and turns they discovered Serge, and took an exploratory trip to Ireland in 2018. There they discovered an opening on the Serge Motion Team, which focuses on Gospel expansion across the island, particularly through relationships with Irish church-planters. They took another trip with their three oldest boys in 2019 and saw God’s hand moving to connect them to the Serge Ireland team. Through interviewing with Serge it became evident to Scott and Sunshine that the Lord was directing them to join the work in Ireland, to work alongside local pastors through mentoring and discipling, helping with evangelistic initiatives, and working to help multiply healthy, gospel-preaching churches.

Scott has served in children’s ministry, evangelism, refugee ministry, small group leadership, counseling, as well as teaching and preaching. Sunny has also served in children’s ministry, refugee ministry, counseling, and has a passion for seeing children come to know and trust Jesus. Scott and Sunshine are sent out from Crosspointe Community Church in St. Joseph, MO.

Scott and Sunny have six children.
