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.
Annie is a graduate of Kenyon College, where she majored in psychology and minored in religious studies. Before attending Kenyon, Annie spent two years as an undergraduate at WashU, where she was an enthusiastic member of Rockwell House. Passionate about campus ministry and the Episcopal Church, she is delighted to return to St. Louis and intern at Rockwell House as a part of the Deaconess Anne House Episcopal Service Corps. Annie was born and raised in California and loves to spend as much time outside as she can. She also enjoys reading books about the Church and the saints (Mary Magdalene is her favorite!) and trying to learn how to play guitar.
