The Reverend Jean Scott, Priest in Residence               

I am privileged to serve at St. Stephen’s and in the Diocese as a supply priest. My route to ordained ministry was through a Reading for Orders program sponsored through the Diocese. I have training in clinical pastoral education (4 units) and was ordained to the priesthood in 2007. I am a bi-vocational priest – I hold an appointment as Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Texas Tech University and serve as the TTU Faculty Ombudsperson. My research interests are in the area of gerontology and focus on formal and informal supportive ties of older adults, later life families, and aging in place in rural areas. In the Diocese, I serve on the Commission on Ministry and will soon complete a term on the Executive Council. My family includes husband, Gary, and twenty-something children, Eric and Kelly.
