Clergy and Staff

The Rev. Scott Lipscomb, Priest-in-Charge


The Rev. Scott Lipscomb

The Rev. Scott Lipscomb was ordained to the priesthood in 2018 in the Diocese of Maryland. He graduated from the General Theological Seminary in 2014 and went on to pursue doctoral work in philosophical theology at the University of Virginia. While continuing his academic work, however, he realized that God was calling him to ministry rather than the academy, and so in 2015 he began discerning a call to ordination.

Scott spends his free time playing (and watching) soccer, running, reading, playing board games, wasting too much time on his computer, and spending time with his wife, The Rev. Anne Nicholson, and his daughter, Magdalena (Maggie).

Anne and Scott met at Seminary, and Anne is currently serving as Associate for Liturgy at St. John's Episcopal Church in Beltsville, Maryland.

From April of 2018 through October of 2019, Scott served as Assistant Rector at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill. In November of 2019, he began serving as priest-in-charge at St. Augustine's in Southwest DC.
