SCOTT FITZSIMMONS

Program Director / DJ

Age: 40

Birthplace: Calgary, AB

Home Church: Yorkton Alliance Church

At The Rock Since: The Beginning!!! (Dec 5th, 2005)

Favourite Artists: Downhere, NEEDTOBREATHE, Steven Curtis Chapman, Phil Wickham AND Demon Hunter!!!

Heroes:

  • My Grannie - She didn't always have the easiest life, but with all life threw at her she was the most loving and accepting person in the world! She lived Christ to everyone she met! I miss you Grannie!

  • My Dad - He always did what needed to be done to take care of his family and to provide. He was a real example of how I feel Christians should be. Treat everyone well, not perfect, but loves Jesus, and shows it in the way he loves others.

  • Dr. William Lane Craig - One of the smartest people I have ever met and so incredibly nice! In debates and discussions, he never loses his cool, and always has an answer for anything people throw at him. He inspires me to not be emotional when people try to argue about God or the things of the Bible.

Addictions: Dr. Pepper; although coffee becomes an addiction when I'm fasting from pop. Not sure which is worse . . .

Hobbies: Discussing, analyzing and over-analyzing hockey or football!

Celebrity I Most Resemble: My mom says I look like Matt Damon (I wish...). I can sort of see some resemblances. Thanks Mom! "My Mom Thinks I Cool" -Milhouse

Favourite Bible Verse: 1 John 4:16-18: And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
