Pastor Scott Lehr is the founder and lead pastor of Southbridge Fellowship in Raleigh, NC. Scott planted Southbridge Fellowship in 2007 with a driving passion to see lives changed by the gospel in the Triangle area and beyond.

The seeds for Southbridge were planted as God gave Scott, then a student in the Master of Theology program at Dallas Seminary, a thirst and vision for a church focused on seeing lives changed by Jesus Christ. The vision continued to be nurtured when Scott and his wife Shanna served in the church planting program at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. In May 2006, Fellowship Bible Church sent the Lehrs out to plant a church that would exalt Jesus and see lives transformed.

Since that time, Southbridge Fellowship has grown into a community of believers who exist to accomplish the mission of connecting people to Jesus for life change.

Scott completed his D.Min from Southern Seminary in 2016 and his doctorate work focused on surveying leaders about the losses often encountered in leadership.

Scott and Shanna have four daughters, Ella, Ava, Gracie and Janie. Scott enjoys developing leaders, watching football, eating good food (especially burgers), running, and spending time with family.
