Scottie Johnson is the lead pastor and church planter of the Outdoor Church of Arkansas (OCA). He and his wife have been married 19 years and will celebrate 30 years on December 17, 2014. They have two sons. Henry age 12 and Fisher age 3. Henry is Scottie and Allyce's biological son. They adopted Fisher through the "CALL" (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime) organization. Scottie has served as student pastor 23 years before he planted OCA. He is an avid outdoorsman. His wife Allyce is a music teacher in Conway and has taught music for over 16 years.
In December of 2012, Scottie and his family moved to Conway to begin the work of planting OCA. After several months of groundwork they began to meet as a core group in August of 2013. The core group met for several months, and on April 15, 2014, OCA officially launched. Outdoor Church of Arkansas is a church that is specifically reaching out to men and women and their families that have a love for an outdoor lifestyle, people who like to hunt, fish, and any outdoor activities. Many of these people really don't feel like they fit or belong in a typical or traditional church setting and OCA is trying to break that stereotype of how many churches are perceived.
