Scott and his wife Carol married in 1978. They have ten children, including seven adopted children and three birth children. In the early 1980s Scott was teaching part-time at USF and volunteering in campus ministry. Somewhere in the midst of that work, he first experienced what he calls "a gentle nudge" toward the diaconate. Scott is profoundly grateful to our pastor and people. He says he has "experienced such love and encouragement and spiritual support from our community that words absolutely fail me".
