Rev Scott holds a B.A. degree from the University of New York in History/Sociology, a masters in Humanities from California State University, a Masters in Psychology from Ottawa University, a postgraduate certificate in Trauma and Abuse, and a DMin from Lipscomb University’s Hazelip School of Theology in Nashville. He serves as a bishop in the Anglican Mission in America and remains heavily involved in spiritual renewal within a wide spectrum of Christian communities.
Born in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia, Dan Scott has experienced divergent spiritual influences in his life. In the spiritual life of his childhood, he experienced the strengths of African-American and Appalachian White Pentecostal worship. In early adulthood, his beliefs were further enriched through his missionary work in Latin America, and among French-Canadian and Haitian people in Quebec. Raised as a Pentecostal, Pastor Scott found his spiritual life expanded through his studies and his growing ties to Christians of all denominations. The fruit of his relationships can be seen in his commitment to a convergence of the three streams of Christianity – the sacramental, the evangelical, and the Pentecostal. Dan Scott is passionate about drawing from the strengths of the divergent gifts and insight of the whole Church. He seeks to create spiritual environments that celebrate the traditions of Christian faith, the freedom of the Holy Spirit and the foundation of the Word.

“This generation of parents in the church is struggling with more than a simple ‘generation gap’. They … ‘we’ are struggling with ‘Futureshock“. A displacement of reality in which life is only focused on the present, and constantly being redefined by the moment. This lack of stability and constancy creates a state of constant flux for parents.”
A long range result of the age of ‘enlightenment is the demystification of time, we are trapped in meaninglessness.”
“To offset these cultural instabilities, we must locate ourselves in the space where something exists outside of the time in which we are. This will anchor you to something tangible and true.”
“What we are aiming for as Christian parents is timelessness, not relevance.”
