Previously, he was the rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he served since 2005. Before seminary, Scott worked as a carpenter and contractor, which began a curiosity about the way the "built environment" impacts Christian discipleship, especially with regard to stewardship of creation and Jesus's charge to welcome the stranger. A native of Arkansas, Scott received his Bachelor of Arts in English from John Brown University and a Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary. Scott enjoys playing guitar (and a little mandolin), riding bikes, carpentry, poems, and walking, whether on a path in the woods or a sidewalk in the city. He is married to Ardelle, who is a counselor and faculty member for CREDO, a clergy wellness program of the Church Pension Group. Ardelle and Scott have two children, Alden and Kate.

Bishop Phoebe in Conversation with Dr. Catherine Meeks
Airing originally on February 11, 2021 on WYXR 91.7 FM in Memphis, TN, this episode of Faithfully Memphis features Bishop Phoebe Roaf in conversation with Dr. Catherine Meeks, Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, whose mission is to provide tools and experiences that allow faith communities – and the larger community of individuals – to engage in dismantling racism through education, prayer, dialogue, pilgrimage, and spiritual formation. Prior to the center's opening, Dr. Meeks she chaired its precursor, Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism for the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. A sought-after teacher and workshop leader, Catherine brings four decades of experience to the work of transforming the dismantling racism work in Atlanta. The core of her work has been with people who have been marginalized because of economic status, race, gender or physical ability as they pursue liberation, justice and access to resources that can help lead them to health, wellness and a more abundant life. This work grows out of her understanding of her call to the vocation of teacher as well as her realization that all of humanity is one family which God desires to unite.
