About Scott McFarlane
Aside from his family and work, Scott currently serves on the board of the Friends of Immanuel University, a liberal arts, Christian university in India for the marginalized poor who seek educational opportunities to lift them and their families out of poverty. He serves on the board of Umri Christian Hospital Foundation supporting a fantastic medical team who serve the marginalized tribal poor in central India.
Married with three teenage children, Scott and his family live and serve on the campus of Oakdale Christian Academy outside Lexington, Kentucky. When they discovered Oakdale, a small international, Christian boarding school for students who seek an American, college-preparatory education in a beautiful, rural setting, they relocated as a family to join Oakdale's ministry. Oakdale's community emphasizes character, leadership, and faith in God. Scott works part time on the campus in international student recruiting, public relations, and marketing.
