The Rev. Canon Scott Gunn

Denomination: The Episcopal Church (TEC)
Organization: Forward Movement


I'm Scott Gunn, an Episcopal priest. In my ministry, I serve as the Executive Director of Forward Movement in Cincinnati, OH. Our mission is to  inspire disciples  and  empower evangelists , which is something I'm always glad to go on about. You can buy books I've written. I am a Deputy to General Convention, serving on behalf of the Diocese of Southern Ohio. In 2012 and 2009, I served in this capacity from the Diocese of Rhode Island. I'm also on the board of the Anglican Theological Review, and I'm the treasurer of the Protestant Church-owned Publishers Association. When I'm not on the road preaching or speaking, I spend Sundays at Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati, where I'm an honorary canon. (Canon Gunn is an excellent example of the hilarity of ecclesiastical titles.)

Not only am I a church geek, but I am a bona fide technology geek. Prior to ordination, I worked in technology spheres, including the The Atlantic Monthly & Fast Company, the MIT Media Lab, and Education Development Center. If asked, I'll tell you about my high-flying and quickly-crashing experience at a dot-com.

Oh, yes, the final obligatory bits. I'm married, and we have one dog in our household. You can follow our dog, George, on Twitter (@georgetdog). Yes, he's named after George Herbert. I enjoy music, reading, photography, and travel.
