Aaron and Grete Scott

Aaron and Grete first discovered EP through Phil Kenneson while students at Milligan College and members of Hopwood Christian Church. They have been EP endorsers since 2004, when Grete, then a graduate student at DePaul, suddenly found herself in the role of Gathering registrar. They take delight in such a diverse group of Christians trying to live faithfully to the radical call of Jesus. 
 
The couple relocated to Chicago in 2004, where they broke their lease to move to Reba Place in Evanston, a Mennonite church and intentional community. They remained at Reba for three years as practicing members and youth leaders. They were glad to discover their city was the site of EP’s summer gatherings.
 
Since then, Aaron and Grete have moved twice: to Virginia Tech, for Grete to complete coursework toward a PhD in Rhetoric and Writing, and to Indianapolis, to share the birth of their first child – Isaiah was born last September – with Grete’s family. While Grete finished graduate courses and taught writing, Aaron – the brave soul – taught middle school Social Studies. Today Aaron teaches Bible and coordinates chapel services at Traders Point Christian Academy in Indianapolis. They hope to make their final move this summer: back to Hopwood and Milligan in Tennessee, where Grete plans to teach writing part-time and Aaron hopes to continue finding ways to minister to and learn from others.
 
Aaron and Grete are particularly happy to have met others through EP who share some of their current interests-communal living, gardening, and eating locally are a few-and also to have their worlds expanded by learning about yours!  (March, 2010)
