Rockwell House Leadership Team
The Rev. Beth Scriven
Saint Louis, MO 63105
Beth has held the best job in the Episcopal Church since August 2015. She has loved Rockwell House Episcopal Campus Ministry since she first encountered it in 2000 when she was in college six states away (but that’s a longer story).
Beth is a born and bred Midwesterner, having lived nearly all her life in the Great Lakes and Mississippi River valley regions. She was raised in Ohio by two public school educators with a strong assist from Girl Scouting and the church. She received her B.A. from Smith College, where she studied dance, German, religion, and life outside the Midwest. Between college and seminary, she spent a fabulous year as the intern at Rockwell House, which she believes formed her for priestly ministry every bit as much as seminary. She holds a Master of Divinity degree from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary with a concentration in biblical studies, and was ordained a priest in 2008. Prior to moving to St. Louis, Beth served seven years as the Associate Rector of St. Clare of Assisi Episcopal Church in Ann Arbor, MI, where her ministry focused on youth, young adult, and adult formation; congregational development and conflict resolution; and hospitality.
Beth’s love of Jesus and ministry are fed by contemplative prayer and small group discipleship; the writings of Oscar Romero, James Martin, J.K. Rowling, and Madeleine L’Engle; and the music of the Indigo Girls, Broadway musicals, and Carrie Newcomer. Her other great joys in life include cooking for others, watching old episodes of The West Wing and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, spending time with her family, and laughing at anything and everything.
