Rev. Scott W. Cousineau joined us on October 28, 2007 as our Minister, after the congregation felt called by God to extend the right hand of fellowship and the Call to Ministry to him by a unanimous vote of those present (118-0) on September 16, 2007. (Click here to read the press release that welcomed Scott to Norfolk.)
Rev. Scott W. Cousineau was born on June 25, 1963. He graduated with honors from Agawam High School, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Salem State College, graduating summa cum laude. An obvious change of course in his career took place and Scott enrolled at Andover Newton Theological School. He graduated with his Master of Divinity in May of 1996 and was married just ten days later. Scott’s wife, the Reverend Renee D. Kaufman is also an ordained American Baptist pastor. Reverend Cousineau was ordained to professional ministry at the First Baptist Church of Beverly Massachusetts in September 1997, and has served churches in Shaker Heights, Ohio; New London, New Hampshire; and Worcester, Massachusetts.
Scott is an avid reader and sports fan, and likes to play an occasional round of golf (although he says is more like, “chasing a little white ball through the woods”). Scott has also been seen on stage from time to time. He played the lead in the Phoenix Players production of The Foreigner. Scott and Renee’s dog, Aubie, is a service dog for the ministry trained at NEADS in Princeton, Massachusetts.
