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 who met at a rodeo, then lost track of each other through high school. They became Christians in their early twenties and were married in 2002.

From the very beginning of their marriage God planted seeds for missions through a trip to Northern Nigeria in 2003, after which they moved to the bustling streets of Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute. In 2006 they moved to Louisville for seminary, but are pretty sure God sent them there for Immanuel Baptist Church, where they learned to better apply the gospel and grow in love for the church. Scott graduated from Southern in 2011 with an M.Div and completed a three-year pastoral apprenticeship with Immanuel.

Scott has served in children’s ministry, evangelism, refugee ministry, small group leadership, 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. The Piland’s are members of Crosspointe Community Church in St. Joseph, MO.

Through many twists and turns they discovered Serge and were introduced to Sonship. As they prayed and considered, “Lord, would you have our family go?” they took an exploratory trip to Ireland in 2018, another in 2019, and saw God’s hand moving to connect them to the Ireland Serge team. They are delighted to join the team in Cork and desire to see the lost reached with the gospel, to serve and encourage Irish leaders, and help new gospel-centered churches be planted.

Scott and Sunny have five children, Jude, Jett, Clive, and Brave. They finally got a girl in 2016 with the birth of Mercy Lou.
