Lead Pastor & Staff
The leadership at Scottsdale Nazarene consists of our lead pastor, Matt, along with other staff, volunteers, and board members. Here are some of our key leaders:
Mary Beth Boesch
(co) LEAD PASTOR
Pastor Mary Beth joined the staff of Scottsdale First several years ago after being an associate pastor at a church in Chandler. She became our (co) Lead Pastor in July, 2021 and we are thrilled to have her lead, teach, and pastor us!
(co lead) Pastor
Matt was our lead pastor for 10 years and has moved into a co-pastor position. He spends much of his time practicing therapy out of a private practice in Mesa as well as teaching seminary courses at Nazarene Theological Seminary and Northwest Nazarene University.
(including Youth Ministry)
I am a Husband, Father, and a student. I enjoy music, food, and good stories. I also have a knack at laughing loud and frequently. I have a passion to love, serve, and build relationships. My wife Karen is my partner in ministry and has played a huge role in my life and the lives of the teens we serve. We have a son, Sullivan James, and a dog, Teller. I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from ASU and Ordination through the Church of the Nazarene.
