“We have known Scott & Laura Brookins for over 25 years. We are awed each year at the things they accomplish!
We have seen children and widows helped and schools built and many people come to Christ. We have seen love and compassion shown in everything they do.Where they see a need, they work diligently to fill it. They do this by the love for others that they show in such beautiful ways, while taking the spotlight off of themselves. They always put others first. They do a lot of their work with their own funds, making sacrifices we wouldn’t even know of.
Obedience. This is a word we think of for Scott & Laura. Obedience to God’s calling in using the gifts and talents He has given each of us. They totally rely on God! For EVERYTHING! Isn’t this the way God wants everyone to live?
Scott and Laura exemplify this.”
Jerry & Barb Smethills
“We became aware of this ministry when Scott and family came to our church about 10 years ago. At the time, we had a trumpet player in 5th grade, so it seemed good to help support an artist who communicated the gospel through the universal language of music! Over the years, we have appreciated the emails and the transparency of Scott and Laura. We’ve been included as prayer partners during some of their tough times, yet God always came through and that was a faith builder for us. We are glad to be a part of this gospel team as we witness the world being changed through their ministry.”

“I can confirm that the Scott Brookins Ministry has been blessing for our region. Christianity or better say Christian lectures have been rejected in our elementary and secondary schools. Your ministry has been accepted and the doors of the schools are open for you.Headmasters are interested in inviting a native speaker, plus musician. And then when they hear of your help with the poor people in Africa and your Christian testimony they are not angry. Your ministry is not aggressive. That’s what I like. Our nation is sensitive to any aggressive religion. With the Scott Brookins Ministry we were able to get into schools and villages.
I remember well the village Horni Dunajovice where we were together in a school. I have never been there before. I even figured out that your service is cost effective. Other forms of evangelization which we use cost more money and usually reach fewer people.
Thank for working with us!”

“We are very grateful for the ministry of our brother in Christ Scott Brookins, who is a real gift for us all here in the Czech Republic where his ministry is known for more than 10 years already.
He has visited already more than 30 towns and places in our country. Brother Scott is a modest, humble servant of the Lord, who does not hesitate to come anywhere where are people who does not know Jesus. He is awaking an interest in the people’s minds: Why such an artist is able to come and play here at the festival, restaurant, or pub? Scott builds the bridges and people are eager to interview him or us and thus the Good News can be spread.
Scott is very versatile minister, he even can adapt quickly to be with the small children and teach them how to play the trumpet. Or he often goes to the children homes and shares with the only hope for man: Jesus.
His coming is always highly expected and when he offers the dates, they are very quickly booked months ahead. The only bad thing is that Scott cannot come more frequently. We are not able to pay him the tickets, but we try to provide him at least food and accommodation, even with that Scott helps us! We thank to whomever who is sowing the good seed here in the Czech Republic through Brother Scott.
Let God bless you abundantly.”

“Thank you for coming and sharing your testimony, ministry and talent with us here at First Christian Church of Stockbridge. I really sensed a genuine heart of service in you and your family, and it is my prayer that God will bless you in ways that you cannot even imagine. So many times we bring in Christian artists that highlight their talent and put an addendum of service on the end, but I sensed an attitude of service throughout the entire worship service you shared with us. Thanks again, and pray for us as we pray for you and your family.”

“Scott’s professionalism and musical gift (it is so much more than a talent!) is an incredible encouragement to the Lord’s people as he lifts praise before God through the sounds of the trumpet.”

“Scott Brookins is an extremely gifted musician. Our congregation was greatly blessed by his ministry. I highly recommend his ministry of music. Most importantly, Scott really loves the Lord!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed Scott Brookins with us recently for his worship concert. His updated arrangements of familiar hymns and songs inspired and encouraged us. His testimony of how he came to faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior challenged us.”

“First I’ve met Scott more than a decade ago. He and his family were here in Hungary, and they evangelized in many churches with different denominational backgrounds. We Baptists also invited him for an open air evangelistic meeting.The Hungarian people nowadays aren’t as opened to the Good News as they were in the years of the change 1989-90. Many of our people leave the church.
Scott has got an ability to speak to these people and he can arouse their interest easily with his trumpet. He is able to share the Gospel in every situation, ready to go in every place, where he can find people who are ready to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ.
He is a true brother and also good friend of mine.”
Baptist Pastor, Hungary
“This past April we had the privilege of having Scott Brookins serve as our evangelist for our Spring Revival. Scott has a warm and loving spirit that was well received by all. We have had Scott several times in the past few years hold concerts for us and share of his mission work overseas but this was the first experience of having him preach for us in a revival atmosphere.
Scott did a wonderful job in preaching from the Word of God and of communicating it to our people. He used his experiences in preaching and witnessing to those in other countries in his messages very effectively. This made his messages from God’s word very practical and challenging for our people to better equip us in being witnesses for Christ.
I believe Scott to be a good steward of both his time and talent in God’s work. Therefore, I am happy to recommend Scott and his ministry through preaching and/or music.”

“This letter is in recommendation of Scott Brookins as a trumpet soloist and clinician. His masterclass was very informative, educational and extremely pedagogically sound. My trumpet students benefited greatly from his working with them and they really enjoyed his style and approach to teaching. Mr. Brookins gave them many suggestions and exercises regarding tone, range, flexibility, technique, articulation and vibrato. He also effectively demonstrated his concepts and approaches. His feedback to student questions was complete yet concise. In short, I am very glad that Mr. Brookins came and worked with our trumpet majors.”

“The aim of any worship service is to come to a place where the worshipper senses the presence of the Holy Spirit. Scott was able to accomplish this in his time with us. He did not just play songs, he ministered to us… I believe he is called of God to this ministry and that his ministry evidences that call by a unique anointing.”
