Westward Road is comprised of the husband (Scott,) wife (Kelli) and
son (Garrett) trio formerly known as "The Roberts Family."
Some have asked, "Where does the name, Westward Road, come from?"
Looking back through the history of God's people, heading westward
represented moving toward God's presence and into a brighter future.
Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden to the east. So,
in order to return to God's presence, they would have had to turn
westward. As God's people wondered in the desert before entering the
promised land, they set up the tabernacle wherever they camped. It
always faced east, which meant that in order to enter the holy of
holies, God's presence, they would have entered in a westward direction.
Though they wondered the desert in all directions, when the Israelites
finally crossed the Jordan to enter the promised land, they did so
in a westward direction. So, we are Westward Road because our heart's
desire is to be ever pressing toward the presence of God and into
His bright future for us.
Scott is a proud husband and dad first. He
graduated from Anderson University and has served as worship pastor
for near 20 years, in North Carolina and Indiana. In that time, he
has lead worship for local congregations as well as for thousands
at large gatherings of believers. His heart beats for bringing hope
to those who don't know Christ and the love and peace that He offers.
Leading people into the very presence of God is where Scott excels.
Kelli, his devoted wife and mother of four, is blessed by God with
a beautiful and soaring voice that communicates God's message straight
to the heart of the listener. Theirs is a marriage of songwriting
ability that compliments the amazing talent of their artistry. Garrett,
the oldest child, completes the trio with his excellent knack for
part singing. The rest of the family, Carson, Payton, and Kade, joins
the trio in a few songs and sound engineering in their concerts. Westward
Road's sound is a mix of a modern country feel with the gospel message
of God's saving grace through His faithful and loving Son, Jesus.
There is nothing like the blend and sound of family harmony and Westward
Road is at the top of their game.
