For the past six years, the Rev. Canon Scott A. Gunn has enjoyed a fruitful ministry leading Forward Movement as its executive director. As you may know, Forward Movement produces Forward Day by Day, digital offerings, and online resources. Serving in a church-wide ministry, he has preached and taught across the church, and he’s witnessed congregations and dioceses of all kinds and sizes thriving with effective leadership focused on following Jesus.
Before his call to Forward Movement, Scott was a parish priest in the Diocese of Rhode Island, where he was curate in one congregation and rector of another. In both congregations, he saw growth and transformation when scriptures were opened, liturgies were transcendent, joy was nurtured, and mission sent people out. Prior to ordination, Scott worked in technology for a nonprofit, a media company, and a university. He was educated at Luther College, Yale Divinity School, and Brown University.
Scott is married to Sherilyn Pearce, also a priest who serves at Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati, where they live. They both enjoy traveling and dog walks. Scott loves photography, writing, and seriously good coffee.
Scott’s leadership and ministry are driven by broad vision, along with a passion for discipleship and evangelism. He looks forward to getting to know you better in the coming weeks, and he hopes that the Holy Spirit will guide the diocese toward becoming the Delaware branch of the Jesus Movement.
