Pastor Pearl Scott, national and international evangelist, healer and founder of Oakland’s Miraculous Foundation Christian Center Church, passed away January 20.
With her two loving daughters Dr. Patricia Scott-Brooks and Dr. E. Jenee Scott and granddaughters Emperess Hall and Majesty Scott at her bedside, she peacefully transitioned to be with her Lord.
Mother Scott, as thousands around the world affectionately knew her, was a compassionate, strong-willed and highly spirited woman of faith who reflected the characteristics of her independent, hard working, entrepreneurial family.
Early in her life, Pearl attended public schools in Fort Worth, Texas.  Her father, Allen Jackson, migrated to California’s San Joaquin Valley where he became a major agricultural contractor, hotel owner and interstate agricultural crops hauler, using his fleet of semi truck-trailer rigs.
 It was in the lounge of one of her father’s hotels that Pearl met her future husband, Squire Scott, and their marriage lasted over 60 years.
The story of the Scott family is one of continuing growth and transformation. They knew that education was one of the keys. Pearl obtained a barber’s license, attended Laney College and earned AA degrees, before going on to Bay Cities Bible College.
Pearl opened a series of barbershops culminating in the current Scott’s Barbershop near downtown Oakland, which is now operated by her family. From that shop, which has lasted over five decades, she evangelized, counseled and dispensed aid to many in need.
However, the main growth and life transformation for the Scotts occurred when Pearl and Squire surrendered their lives to Christ, joining Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. It was there that Pearl became the first woman in charge of all of the church’s religious educational services and her gifts of healing began manifesting.  
Later, the Scotts united with Mingleton Temple Church of God in Christ.  At Mingleton Temple, she served in various leadership roles. Squire and Pearl subsequently accepted the call to become pastors.
With Mother Scott’s gifts of healing and miracles, the ministry began to have regular healing services. As their fame grew, they began to conduct healing and evangelistic services around the Bay Area, across the United States and internationally in places as diverse as the Caribbean, Canada and Africa where they preached to crowds as large as 50,000 people.
In 1993, the MFCCC moved to 1642 Fruitvale Ave. in Oakland, where their two daughters now co-pastor. Pearl Scott will always be remembered for her “Pearls of Wisdom” and captivating smile.
Her husband Squire Scott, her parents and three sisters preceded Pearl Scott in death. She leaves to celebrate her life daughters Patricia Scott-Brooks (Stephen) of Dublin and E. Jenee Scott of Dublin; grand-daughters Emperess Hall (Vernon) of Antioch and Majesty Scott of Dublin; great-grandsons Emperor and Empire Hall of Antioch; first cousin Lorenza Watson (Phyllis) of Oakland; several nieces and nephews, as well as a host of other relatives, loving friends and spiritual children.
Services will be private.
