Hi Friends! For the last 5 years, my band (Allan Scott Band) has been sharing the message of God's grace & hope with the struggling & hurting at drug rehab facilities, prisons & churches in many different parts of the country.
Announcing Found and Favored Ministries
This year, God impressed us to start Found and Favored Ministries. Our mission is to release the hurting, struggling, and addicted into the grace and freedom of God. It is our desire to share the message of God’s grace and hope at prisons, rehab centers, churches, and conferences across the country. Hope and Freedom Released in 60 Places
Last year, my team and I ministered at 60 different worship services, conferences, rehabs and retreats. Through a combination of inspiring testimony, biblical teaching, powerful worship, and times of response, we shared how God had brought freedom and hope into our lives. As we did, we saw a common theme among all the places we visited.
At every church service or event, we met folks struggling with guilt and condemnation. They weren’t sure if God really loved them or if God was indeed for them. In addition, some were struggling with substance abuse, and some were struggling with a different addiction. Feeling trapped, hopeless, and ashamed, many had been afraid of admitting their struggle. And there was another group of people. Coming forward, often in desperate tears, were those who were believing, praying and caring for a struggling family member.

o about our ministry:
The Gospel Is Transforming Addicts In 2013, we began to take our ministry into rehab centers across the Northeast, and God began to work in the lives of addicts and alcoholics. We shared the Gospel with them—Jesus had redeemed them, made them royalty, and favored them. What a transformative message!When someone has been down and out, but hears the truth about their worth to God, it can be a world-shaking, life-altering message. Psalms 34:18 says “The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.”God began to show us that there is such a need to call His sons and daughters home. They feel unloved, they feel unworthy, but they’re still His sons and daughters.Here’s the irony—many of the places that need us the most can’t cover the ministry costs of putting on an event. Nevertheless, that’s where we need to go! Travel, equipment and personnel costs can be thousands of dollars per event. Your support allows us to say YES to the people in desperate need of being set free.
Let’s Set People Free Together
Friends, would you partner with us to meet the needs of those who are addicted, hurting and struggling? Together we can make a greater impact in the lives of those who need to experience the grace and freedom of God. Together we can be the only Jesus that many of these precious people will ever meet.Fourteen years ago I had destroyed my life and thrown everything away. But Jesus saved this drug addict and thief! He changed my name from “loser” to “loved,” and gave me a hope and a future. Since that jail sentence 14 years ago, He has proven over and over that He is for me and is able to restore any situation.
Here are three ways we can set people free together.
Pray: Please pray that we would be sensitive to where the Lord is leading us; pray that God would open up the right doors and close the wrong ones; and pray that we would have right words during ministry times.
Give: Please consider a one-time or monthly tax-deductible financial gift. Your one-time or monthly financial gift of $50, $100, $250 or any amount helps us bring Jesus to the addicted and hurting across the country. Together we can get the message of hope, God’s grace and forgiveness into the places that need it the most.

About "Be My All"2 Corinthians 12:9 states, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
If you are like me, you have faced seasons of life where you felt weak. Well, those are the very times when I have seen God do amazing things. Those low seasons always turn out to be the best times of momentum and seeing Gods faithfulness in my life! Friends, if you are feeling weak or overwhelmed in an area of your life today, know that you are being set up for SUCCESS. In those very areas and times of weakness, God shows himself as the STRONG one, the God who is able, the God who always succeeds. And He is going to succeed in you! "Be My All" is meant to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ. God has promised to be everything to us. He is success. He is provision. He is wisdom. And He is in us, working through us and all around us for our good and His glory. So we can relax knowing that He is going to get the job done even when we can't see the road ahead. He does. He is our vision and we can trust him. He is our all.
"Be my Strength when I am weak. Be my all my, my victory. Be my eyes when I can't see. Be my everything, Be My All..."
Watch the lyric video for "What You Say" Hello Friends!
Our new song "What You Say" is available online everywhere! We are so excited to share it with you and hope the message of the song really ministers to you...
About "What You Say" You know, God has given every christian the same favored and perfect standing in His eyes as Jesus.. 1 John 4:17b says, "...as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world." This verse states that our identity is completely wrapped up in who Jesus is. As He is, so are we! So many times in my own life I have been tempted to draw my identity from my past mistakes. As an ex-loser, drug addict and thief, I am so glad that God changed my name to loved, redeemed and favored. As JESUS is, so am I. And so are YOU! Every christian has a choice- are we going to believe what our past and the enemy says that we are? Or are we going to believe the truth about who God says we are? I would encourage you to believe what God says!

“God in Me” is the declaration prayer of my life. It is me saying, “God, You are able. You are faithful! You cannot fail at anything you start – and You have started in me. You are God in me.
2 Phil 2:13 “…for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
I am familiar with impossibilities in my own life. As a former drug addict, dropout, thief and loser, there was a time in my life when simply having a normal existence seemed impossible. As a child I accepted Christ as Savior, but in my early years, my family life spun out of control. There were multiple divorces by my parents and other circumstances that made my home life chaotic. During my teenage years, I began to run from God. After years of substance abuse, I ended up in multiple rehabs and eventually, jail. It was in the difficult circumstances of pain and failure that I asked God to put the pieces of my broken life back together. And He did!
That was 12 years ago. In my life, God has shown himself over and over to be the God who is not only able to help, but the God who is willing to help. He can and will do exceedingly above all we can ask think or imagine. He is the Faithful One, and His faithfulness is not dependent upon ours. Because of His goodness and His faithfulness, He picked me out of the gutter and gave me a new life! While my situation seemed impossible, I have learned that God is completely able to save and restore those who come to Him! This is a powerful message for the ones who have walked away from God or for those who have never known Him. 2 Tim 2:13 states, “if we are faithless, he remains faithful—for he cannot deny himself.” He is certainly able to save you and redeem the pieces of your broken life.
Col 1:27 “…which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
After I had walked with God for a while, I began to think that I could mess things up because of my inability to get it right. I felt that the weight of my salvation and earning God’s approval was resting on me. I was so tired! I knew that it was His grace that brought me into salvation; after all, I of all people did not deserve it! What I did not realize was that it was His grace through which I was kept and sustained. When I learned that Jesus had permanently earned God’s smile upon my behalf, it changed my life forever.
Our salvation and hope is meant to rest on Him and His finished work! Colossians 2:6 says, “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him.” We walk out our relationship with God the same way that we received Him: not by earning and deserving his goodness, but by trusting that He is the God that is able. He brought us in and He will see us through.
Phil 1:6 “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Faith is key. Faith in Him and His ability to get the job done in our life. Faith that the cross was enough to pay for all of our sin and failures. Faith that God—who IS victory, who IS strength, who IS success— lives in us! He cannot fail at anything He begins, and He began in us! He will complete the work He started in us, for us and through us. This is the message to my struggling brothers and sisters: hold on. Continue to believe Him in your circumstances. Where things are impossible for you, they are possible for Him. He will not fail in you. He will not fail with you. He can’t. God can’t fail.
This is the core message I am sharing through my song, “God In Me,” and with my life. He is God and He is inside of you. Everything that God is you have because you have Him! He is Christ in you. He is God in you. He is God for you...and God will never fail.
Eph 3:20-21 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!”
