Meet Our Missions Interns

I am excited to introduce you to Kelsey Engel and Scott Grant, our two new missions ministry interns. Kelsey and Scott will begin their service on our missions staff on June 1 and will each serve with us for one year. We are excited to welcome them and look forward to an exciting year as we continue to mobilize our Kingsland family to Go Beyond.

Kelsey Engel 1
Kelsey Engel, a graduate of Houston Baptist University, has served as the Campus Missionary Intern at HBU for the past year. God has used Kelsey’s outgoing never-meet-a-stranger personality to make many meaningful connections with university students. She has mobilized HBU students to serve in local and international missions initiatives.

Kelsey will tell you that God first instilled a passion in her heart for missions when she was just a little girl. Her love for the nations has continued to grow over the years. In addition to being sensitive to the nations among us, Kelsey has served on short-term mission teams to Kenya, Jamaica, Haiti, Guatemala, and Chile. She looks forward to serving in our missions ministry and engaging with a world in need. She hopes to one day serve as a career missionary.

Kelsey admits to being a coffee addict. She enjoys discovering new coffee shops and sampling coffee. She also loves the outdoors and looks for opportunities to hike and explore. But most importantly, Kelsey loves God and she loves people — two things that will continue to serve her well as she joins our missions ministry team. Welcome, Kelsey.

Scott Grant
Scott Grant comes to our missions team from the corporate world. He recently retired from the high-tech industry to begin planting churches and presenting God’s love in tangible ways to those farthest from Him. Scott is currently working with the North American Missions Board and Stadia as he prepares to launch a new church in 2016.

Scott is in his final year of studies at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary where he is completing a degree in Urban Missiology and Church Planting. He will spend a year serving on our missions ministry team as he works to complete the residency requirements of his degree plan.

Scott and his wife Brooke have six kids. They have seen God work in providential ways to grow their family and continue to see Him work daily to build harmony within their large family. Scott and Brooke expect that things may get quiet around their home 13 years from now when their youngest heads off to college.

Scott is a Florida Gators fan and enjoys reading, athletics and games with his kids. He has traveled the world and shared the gospel in more than 30 countries. He admits to singing karaoke in Seoul and Manila and confesses that his singing has made animals howl. He has had lots of fun and meaningful travel experiences and looks forward to serving on our missions team. Welcome, Scott.


  1. They seem great, can’t wait to meet them!

    • Good folks. You will enjoy meeting them.
