about the founders - scott & lydia ingegneri
Before launching Awaken Ministries Int'l in July 2017, Scott and Lydia served as Senior Pastors of Grace North Church; a multi-site church in Phoenix, Arizona. Both Scott and Lydia were raised in ministry homes. A deep passion and response to a ministry call came at a young age for the both of them. The Ingegneri's met in 2001, married in 2003 and immediately began songwriting and leading worship together around the state of Arizona. Within months of being married they joined the church plant team for Grace North Church. Scott served as Executive Pastor and Lydia served as Worship Pastor for 8 years before their installation as Senior Pastors in 2011. Both Scott and Lydia are ordained ministers with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. They have been incredibly blessed with four amazing children and considering ministering as a family their greatest treasure in life!
