• Scott Canterberry
  • Vice President, North America Operations

Scott joined Push the Rock in November 2019 as head of North America Operations. Scott oversees all aspects of our domestic operations, including strengthening programs in existing districts, planning for expansion into new geographies, and hiring and developing staff members. Scott will also help provide strategic direction to Eagles Wings Disc Golf.   He will create opportunities to advance current partnerships with schools, churches and other organizations, and establish new partnerships with organizations across the US and Canada.

Scott joined Push the Rock after nearly 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry, where he served in marketing leadership and broader commercial leadership roles in the US, China, and international markets.  He has a passion for young people and coaching, having worked with youth in the US, Africa, China and Eastern Europe, using sports to help build confidence, character and to share the love of Christ.

Scott believed that God strongly directed him into full-time sports ministry during a sports missions trip to Montenegro in August 2017; during that trip he learned about Push the Rock from one of the team members.   He has led the Push the Rock/Graceway basketball camp in Hamilton, NJ the summers of 2018 and 2019.

Scott and his wife Beth (and dog Jasmine), reside in Stockton, NJ. They have three young adult sons and one daughter-in-law, living in Texas, California and Maryland.

God is teaching me about…
Dependence

The professional athlete I most want to compete against is…
Michael Jordan.  Although I was able to live in the same dorm as Jordan and sometimes had the opportunity to shoot around with other members of the UNC basketball team during college, I never had the opportunity to lace them up with MJ.  I’m ready! …(maybe not)

Favorite sporting event that I’ve been able to attend is…
Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, the first World Series game in NYC after 9/11.  The Yankees did win the game, but it was a much bigger moment for our nation.

The best lesson I learned about sportsmanship was…
At the age of 12, I had a rec league baseball coach that demanded perfection and emphasized a win-at-all-costs mentality. We had a sparkling record, but played with a fear of failure and little joy. Several members of the team never played baseball again after that season, having lost a lot of self-confidence.   As a result, I’ve tried to create a more positive experience for my teams and team members while playing and coaching.

 

 

At Push The Rock, we are full-time missionaries and are financially supported by people like you.
