Jon Scroggins


The Man The man behind the name is none other than a husband, father, and student. I have been married to the love of my life for over twenty years now, and we are more in love now than we ever have been. We have two children of whom we could not be prouder. Both are incredible individuals and truly are a blessing in my life. I am so proud of the people they have become. They are true contributors to society. I am currently a student at Fort Hays State University. My aspiration is to graduate with a bachelor's in Psychology and use that, possibly, in a counseling environment which is where my heart is - to help people The Believer I believe in the Bible. I believe it to be true, infallible, and able to stand the test of time. Yes, I am a Christian. However, I feel I am so much more than a label. I strive to live up to the standards that are in the Bible, but find that I fall short many times. I am a failure. I am a sinner. I have been forgiven. I believe that God is omniscient and omnipresent. I believe that He was long before any of us was. I believe it is by His divine will that I am here to walk this Earth and do what I love. I believe that God cared so much for me that He sent his only heavenly son to become a sacrifice for us all. I believe that he took upon my shame, my wrongs, my sin and became all those things so that I may live, in heaven, forever. I believe that Jesus was beat, humiliated for my sins and nailed to a cross. I believe He died, went to hell, and rose three days later having conquered sickness, sin, and death. I believe in a loving God. I believe in His compassion, His grace, and His mercy. I believe in the grace that God offers. I believe grace allows us to live in freedom - a stark contrast to what some teach. I believe that it is so important to make a choice and stick with it. It is my desire that everyone who might read this be intrigued by my words and inquire about this God and this Jesus. The Drummer Music has always been in my blood. I am a student of the drums for almost 30 years now. My first song ever learned was "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. My parents probably had second thoughts those first several weeks, but they have voiced their overwhelming support for my career since. Recently, I was the drummer for an upcoming Country Trio called Shotgun & Lace. As seasons come and go, so did this opportunity. I had amazing opportunities and met a lot of amazing people in the music industry. I have been blessed to share the stage with multiple Christian acts such as: Audio Adrenaline, Casting Crowns, Red, Jeremy Camp, and many more. I have also been blessed to share the stage with many National Country acts such as: Parmalee, Mark Chestnut, Confederate Railroad, Brothers Osborne, Turnpike Troubadours, Ray Scott, Earl Thomas Conley, and many more. Currently, I am actively seeking a position in a serious group, open for drum lessons, and continue learning my craft. Endorsements: Soultone Cymbals My equipment: 5 pc.
