Founder and Executive Director - My Daily Armor Ministries
“A hundred years from now, I want people to look back at the work we’re doing today, as first steps towards building the greatest Christian humanitarian relief ministry the world has ever known.”
Founder Scott Goldbach
As the Founder and Executive Director of My Daily Armor Ministries, I’m constantly looking for innovative ways to meet our goals and get the word out about the work we are blessed with, in different parts of the world. My Daily Armor Ministries began on January 21st, 2013 with the goal of reaching as many Christians as possible with encouraging words, daily bible verses, and uplifting devotionals (My Daily Armor).
Since that time, and with God’s amazing blessings, we have continued to expand our ministry and now support vulnerable, orphaned, and abandoned children internationally through the development of major infrastructure projects like our Medical Clinic in Jacmel, Haiti, Our Schools in Ghana, and Uganda, our Farm in Ghana, and our Children’s Home, currently under development in India (Amazing Orphans International).
Additionally, our (Jonny’s Wagon) outreach helps feed and care for our communities in need in the US through our neighborhood food drives and the ongoing efforts to place additional food pantries.
We are a Christian organization supplying humanitarian relief efforts across the globe. To date, we have been blessed to raise nearly a million dollars for those in need and have helped make a lasting impact on many areas of the world.
For more than 32 years I worked in some form of IT, doing desktop support to leading large-scale projects for some of the largest corporations in America, Ericsson Information Systems, TRW, Ford Motor Company, and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. In 2017 I was blessed with the opportunity to take early retirement, allowing me the freedom to devote the rest of my life to serving those in need.
I have an amazing wife without whom our ministry would not be possible, and two gorgeous daughters who graduated from the University of Louisville Nursing School as RNs. One, who like her dad travels the world, and another who is about to settle down and buy her first home.
Our family regularly attends Southeast Christian Church here in Louisville, KY where I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as an usher and men’s accountability group leader. I’ve also had the privilege of serving with the backstage crew of the Southeast Easter Pageant, one of the country’s largest Easter productions that reached nearly a million people over the course of its lifetime.
In my spare time, I look for adventure. I’ve flown Cessna aircraft and even became a certified (BFI) flight instructor on Powered Parachutes. I traveled to the other side of the world, Nepal, in 2007 to trek to Everest Base Camp (see journal) and I’ve had the opportunity to safari on the Serengeti and complete a successful summit up Kilimanjaro in 2012 (see journal).
I also enjoy flying my drone and love to go fishing with my friends every chance I get. I’m an avid BBQ Pitmaster with plans to enter the KCBS backyard BBQ competitions in 2022, and I recently received my certification with the KCBS “The Kansas City BBQ Association” as a BBQ Judge where I met Famous Dave himself!
I have been blessed with travel into more than 11 countries, many of which are directly related to my ministry work through our Amazing Orphans International outreach, including Tanzania, Ghana, Haiti, Uganda, India, Nepal, Panama, Iceland, and Costa Rica.
I do my best to wake up every morning asking God where we are going today!

"Miracle On The Mountain" In the fall of October 2012, my friend Randy and me would attempt to summit the highest freestanding mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro. It is a feat that only 45% of all the climbers who ever attempt it are able to accomplish, and one that...
“God Moves In Uganda” Looking back now, I can’t say that I recall the specific moment that God placed Uganda on my heart, only that He had done so prior to my visit with my friend Denise. As is often the case for me, God moves in my heart long before I see why He has...

“A Gift From God” In the summer of 2010, I was preparing for one of the hardest things I would ever attempt to accomplish, a 100km bike ride in support of “The Ride to Conquer Cancer” for Norton’s Cancer Institute (as a tribute to my mom). Something would happen on...

“It All Started With A Little Red Wagon” How Jonny's Wagon Got Its Name We met Jonny the first time we carried food into our city to feed our homeless. We walked down to Louisville’s Water Front and I still recall the first thing Jonny said to me when we met. “Hi, I’m...
