The Resilience Resource
Scott Gwin, CEO and co-founder of The Resilience Resource is a Mental Health Coach through the American Association for Christian Counselors, a Spiritual and Psychological First Aid Instructor, certified Chaplain through the International Conference of Police Chaplains, is credentialed in Grief following Trauma, Emotional and Spiritual Care in Disasters, Advanced Critical Incident Care for Individuals and Groups, and is currently completing a Masters Degree in Leadership Development through Bethel Seminary in MN.
As volunteer youth staff at a local church, Scott unknowingly stepped into a chaplaincy career when his youth group went through the tragic shooting at Columbine High School. Shouldering with survivors as they grieved and struggled developed into a passion to walk with people through tragedy and loss.
Prior to co-founding The Resilience Resource, Scott spent 25 years in the commercial and residential construction industry, served as a firefighter for 12 years, has 12 years of experience in the equine therapy world, and currently serves as a first responder, law enforcement, and humanitarian aid chaplain. He has been involved in cross cultural contexts and ministry for over 21 years, spanning eleven countries on four continents.
Scott, along with his wife, Josie, has trained, resourced, and provided care for personnel, leaders, and teams from a variety of faith based and secular organizations, as well as firefighters and law enforcement, first responder chaplains, medical personnel and hospital chaplains, and military and special forces personnel from all four branches of the US military.
He and Josie have been best friends in marriage for 26 years and have a son, three daughters, and a son-in-law.
