About Us

Soul Bait started out as a monthly newsletter for the outreach department of Family Christian Center of Clermont, Florida. The name “Soul Bait” came from the scripture in John 4:7-30. It is the story of the woman at the well. 


In 2006, God told Pastors Scott and Jennifer Lathrop to step out into their full-time ministry. In 2007, the Lathrops were released from Family Christian Center to go to Jacksonville, Florida, where Soul Bait Ministries launched into full-time service.

There are 3 areas in which Soul Bait Ministries believes it is supposed to work:



  1. Equipping the Body of Christ through preaching, Hearing God’s Voice classes, prophetic evangelism, Dreams & Visions training, and ministry team training.

  2. Healing ministry to the body, soul, and mind through personal ministry as well as teaching & prayer crusades.

  3. Planting & maintaining churches. We believe time is short, and we have to help the established church grow in new levels, plant new churches nationally & internationally, and take ground back from the enemy. Soul Bait’s desire is to see that we grow into that powerful & loving bride, not shrink back like scared little children.
