About Scott Wells


As you’ve gathered, I write about Universalist Christianity, church administration, sustainable and ethical living and the District of Columbia. My first website was called “Evangelical Universalist” — named for an antebellum denominational newspaper — and launched me on the Internet late in 1995. This blog began 22 May 2003.

I’m 52 and a Georgia native, living in Washington, D.C. since 2000.

  • 1991. A.B. University of Georgia
  • 1997. M.Div. Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University

Me, even less recently

I was ordained to “the Ministry of the Gospel” in 1999 and have pastored churches in Georgia and the District of Columbia and served others in Texas and South Carolina in a less formal arrangement. Currently, I have a Day Job in the exciting (really) world of nonprofit operations.

“Hubby” — writer, editor and musician Jonathan Padget — live in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington D.C. where we enjoy Chinese take-out, eating in, vinyl records and the better end of the city’s theater scene.
