Scarlet Pepin graduated from Oral Roberts University with a degree in education. She combined her love for children with her heart for ministry and traveled to our nation’s churches, presenting children’s programs through ventriloquism, singing, and teaching. Scarlet married Brad, her college love, twenty-seven years ago, and they reside in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They have three daughters and two wonderful son-in-laws. Scarlet currently travels internationally, speaking and ministering at women’s retreats, events, and conferences. She has a unique way of communicating deep biblical truths and Godly wisdom, all wrapped up in joy and laughter.
Scarlet Pepin is a married mother of three daughters and one son-in-law with a heart to teach God’s truths. She is both passionate and creative —gifts that were instilled in her as a child.
Scarlet’s imagination and creativity were nurtured and inspired during her childhood years in Orlando, Florida. Her father was an executive at Walt Disney World where admission was free to all employees’ children. Fun and laughter were encouraged by spinning tea cups and elephants that could fly!
Not all aspects of her childhood were vacation-like, but during the tough times, she always knew that she could find a listening ear from her best friend and Savior: Jesus. At eighteen she left Florida and headed to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Scarlet’s original plan was to be a “weather girl” because she loved connecting with an audience. After taking several classes, she realized that weather forecasters were mostly connecting with teleprompters. Having to know facts about precipitation and the difference between stratus and cirrocumulus clouds caused Scarlet to change her degree. Her desire to be a mom that would have the same schedule as her future children led her to choose a degree in elementary education. During this time she discovered that her desire to connect with an audience was so much more. It was the gift of teaching.
In July of 1990, the summer after graduation, she became Mrs. Bradley Pepin. Brad and Scarlet met in September, were engaged in March, married in July, and welcomed their first daughter the following July. Two more daughters followed. The years to come were spent raising her girls, teaching women’s Bible studies, and sharing sermons as a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) mentor.
In 1999 and 2000, Scarlet was a bi-weekly performer at the Grand Grove Opry and was able to fine-tune her childhood interest in ventriloquism. She spent the next few years traveling the nation, presenting shows in churches, schools, and country clubs. God was using this time to prepare her for a future of traveling and speaking. She has been given the opportunity to share her love for Christ and His Word with many women’s groups throughout the world. Her current focus is presenting biblical truths through teaching and bringing refreshment to His people.
“Equipping believers through powerful biblical teachings using Christ’s refreshing joy”
Ephesians 4:12-13 (NIV)
To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.
Philemon 1:7 (NIV)
Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.
There are few women who speak from the heart with depth and joy at the same time. Scarlet Pepin is one of the few. When she communicates biblical truths, she somehow combines humor, a chunk of sweetness, and a sucker punch all in one! Scarlet is one of my all-time favorite female speakers. I am forever blessed by being a mom in the crowd during her beginner days!- Deana, Mother of Two
Scarlet Pepin ministered at our women's retreat 2 years ago and women are still talking about it! She has a unique gift of weaving humor with powerful nuggets of truth that she has gleaned while at the Lord's feet. This dynamic combination is what allows her to come in, read people's mail and leave them marked to face life's challenges through the eyes of their Heavenly Father. Scarlet always has a fresh, anointed word in season and out of season.- Carrie Kittinger, Women's Ministry Director,
Scarlet is such a relevant speaker for the times we are living in. She brings a practical, fresh approach to the issues so many women are facing.- Pastor Sandy Scheer, Guts Church
When I think of Scarlet these are the words that come to my mind: Jesus's, Fun-loving, Prophetic.- Lura Mineau, Women's Pastor
Trinity Evangelical Church
I have ministered alongside Scarlet Pepin many times over the last thirteen years. Her prophetic gifts are some of the most beautiful I have seen. God speaks through her in such a way that He tickles our funny bones and convicts our souls simultaneously. She's an amazingly gifted preacher of the Word. But more importantly—speaking as a long-term, deep-hearted friend of Scarlet—I can tell you that her heart is trustworthy. She lives her life standing before the Lord in openness, honesty, and vulnerability. I would not only recommend Scarlet as a minister, I will happily link arms with her before the Throne.- Christine Westhoff, Akouo Ministries
