Welcome Rev. Lipscomb

Over the last five months the St. Augustine's Vestry has worked hard, long and diligently in the tedious and meticulous process of the Priest in Charge process. Your participation in the townhall meetings discussing and sharing your input on the attributes, characteristics and personal warmth you wanted to find in a new Priest in Charge was heard by and helped us move forward in our task of finding the best person for St. Augustine’s.
 
St. Augustine’s is moving forward in the next new chapter of our history. We want to hold on to our values, mission and goals that we have long been known for in our community. However, we need someone who brings fresh and new ideas of how to move us progressively and positively forward. We looked for someone who has both energies to reinvigorate us as a church community but also be able to use that new invigorating energy to share God’s word with new people who have move into the Southwest Community. We looked for a person who would lead us in the direction of faith, belief and caring for others while encouraging new people to become members of our beloved St. Augustine’s. We want to continue to open our doors to those who seek a new beginning with God, who want to enhance their understanding of what it is to be an Episcopalian, and to all those who just want to come and be with us in learning about God’s love.
 
The Vestry are happy to announce with the blessings and approval of Bishop Marianne, that we have chosen Rev. Scott Lipscomb to be St. Augustine’s new Priest in Charge. Scott is married to Ann who is also a minister and they have a young daughter, Meghan. Rev. Scott’s first official Sunday with us as Priest in Charge will be Sunday, Nov.. 3, 2019.
