Scott Maurer - Executive Director
Scott Maurer is our executive director. He is responsible for providing organizational oversight and direction, training volunteers, and conducting most of our individual and family counseling.
Scott spent over a decade in the business world, where he learned about organizational structures, leadership and team dynamics, and interpersonal conflict. He has spent the last 15 years in pastoral ministry as an associate pastor and senior pastor of several churches, where much of his time was dedicated to individual and family counseling. This experience included marital and family counseling, as well as working with a variety of affective and social disorders, such as trauma, addictions, depression, anxiety, abuse, self-abuse, anger management, and conflict resolution. His graduate and doctoral level studies have covered transformational leadership, family systems and conflict resolution, counseling, and emotional-spiritual health. He is a member of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, the American Association of Christian Counselors, and the Society for Christian Psychology.
Scott has synthesized this experience and education base into the system of healing the entire person that we employ at New Day Help Center. He has trained many other people in how to find their place in this system of healing and minister to others in ways that will help the wounded recover and thrive.
A native Alexandrian, Scott graduated in 1985 from T.C. Williams High School. He has graduate degrees from the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University and from Liberty Theological Seminary, as well as an earned doctorate from Bethel Seminary. He lives in Alexandria, VA, with his wife and children (when they are home from college).
