Upon graduating from Moody Bible Institute, Scott intended on a ministry career. Yet, after a year of trying to find a job in ministry Scott settled for working with his hobby . . . computers. Initially his jobs were all temp work but after two years of learning the ropes Scott was hired by Mutual Fund Magazine where he was trained in networking and was eventually promoted to Systems Administrator. With the onset of the Internet boom, Scott left MF Mag to start a web design company and with this learned graphic art and web design. During this period he started ChristArt.com on a whim without intentions of making it a business or earning money from it. But God prospered ChristArt and Scott's web design company failed. He found another job with the start up company eDiets.com where he excelled and was eventually promoted to Project Manager. ChristArt keep growing as the word got out and more web sites kept linking to it. During this time Scott continued creating Art for ChristArt and applied the web programming and database skills he was learning at eDiets to ChristArt. In 2003 Scott left eDiets to work full time on ChristArt.com and found his ministry.

Bithiah's quick work, friendly demeanor and excitement for ministry made her a real blessing to ChristArt. She started volunteering by writing short summaries of Christian stories and was ever looking for more ways to help. If you like our power point books, thank Bithiah. She converted one of our Christian books into power point for her church's children ministry. The kids loved it and Bithian set to converting others. We also loved the idea and made our all of our books available to the public in power point.
