Fr. Anthony’s assistance was most valuable in every stage of the process…His continuous motivation, good counsel, guidance and personal coaching helped our Capital Campaign Committee throughout the campaign…All who were involved with the process know the value he added to our efforts, and are indeed grateful.
–Fr. Arakel Aljalian, Pastor
St. James Armenian Apostolic Church
Fr. Anthony immediately captured our trust as a man of great integrity and honesty. We then hired him to assist us with our Capital Campaign. His organized and professional approach and his ability to introduce new standards of biblical, sacrificial giving have made a tremendous impact on our Parish Family. His experience and knowledge in fundraising is matched by his humble and patient approach. We were complete novices in raising substantial funds and Fr. Anthony is a great instructor!

Stewardship Advocates brought a surge of professional institutional development savvy to our Seminary. Fr. Scott brought us fresh approaches and state-of-the-art fund raising methodologies. He came to us not as a detached corporate executive but as a committed servant of God and the Orthodox Church. We continue to reap the fruits of his work four years later.

I have had the privilege of working with Fr. Anthony Scott for eight years while he was the Chief Advancement Officer of St. Vladimir’s Seminary. He is a true professional, with untiring energy and dedication to a successful outcome of any project that he is involved with.
–Brian Gerich, Co-Chair
St. Vladimir’s Seminary Capital Campaign
I have known Fr. Anthony Scott as a brother priest and friend for thirty years. When I was assigned to the pastorate at St. George Cathedral in Wichita, Kansas in 1992, I knew that Fr. Anthony had been my predecessor. What I did not know, however, was that Fr. Anthony had performed a miracle in this community when he arrived as a young priest in 1977. Fr. Anthony was able to heal the deep rifts that had fractured the community. Furthermore, he led them into a much deeper Orthodox Christian life and spirituality. I speak for the entire community of St. George Cathedral in giving thanks to God for the ministry of Fr. Anthony.
–Fr. Paul O’Callahan, Dean
St. George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral, Wichita, Kansas
Our Orthodox service agency sought a professional consultant who could help us to become firmly established and address our long range strategic and financial goals. His pastoral approach was calming and his consultation was thorough. Stewardship Advocates provided our ministry with the expertise and direction we needed to be situated on the right path to accomplish our goals and objectives.
–Patrick Tutella, Chaplain, Executive Director Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry
We were comfortable with, impressed by, and appreciative of Fr. Anthony as both a priest and a consultant. Fr. Anthony is highly respected and effective. The success of a Capital Campaign with the assistance of Fr. Anthony is not simply founded in raising needed funds for capital improvements, but also in continuing to pastorally build up and encourage growth in the Body of Christ. Our Campaign was ordered, informative, exciting, inviting and Christ-centered.
–Rev. Dr. Christopher Flesoras
St. Anna Greek Orthodox Church Roseville, California
Fr. Anthony Scott and Stewardship Advocates provided a timely ministry to our new mission in Virginia at a critical state of our growth. As a fruit of his teaching on stewardship, his encouragement, and his willingness to assist us, we were able to summon the resources for a capital campaign that raised the funds necessary to serve as a down payment for our new facilities. Fr. Anthony’s ministry, expressed through the book Good and Faithful Servant: Stewardship in the Orthodox Church, served as the seminal work in my study of the theological and practical dimensions of Orthodox stewardship in the course of my doctoral work.
–Rev. Dr. Robert Holet
St. Nicholas Ukrainian Orthodox Church
Please allow me to thank you again for your guidance in our original capital campaign. The results far exceeded any of our expectations. Your expertise in these matters was a God send. I look forward to working with you again in our current project and greatly anticipate that this partnership will be as productive as was our first.
–Fr. Steve Dalber
St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church
Charlotte, North Carolina
Fr. Anthony Scott offers the most experienced and effective assistance now available in all aspects of stewardship and fund raising, especially for church programs and projects. A partnership with Stewardship Advocates involves a serious commitment to meticulous training, patient learning, unselfish cooperation, courageous service and, most of all, persistent hard work. Those willing to make such a commitment will not be disappointed with their decision.
–Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus
St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary
I am most grateful that I used the professional services of Fr. Anthony Scott to raise the funds to build our beautiful Metropolis Center. Without his invaluable help, we would not be in the excellent position of having a mortgage now reduced, in less than eight years, to 7.5% of the initial cost.
–Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver
Greek Orthodox Archdiocese
We recognize Archpriest Anthony Scott for his excellent work in the past at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, as well as his support and work with many other Orthodox institutions. We fully endorse Fr. Anthony’s work with Stewardship Advocates and wish him many years of successful labors.
+JONAH, Archbishop of Washington
Metropolitan of All America and Canada
Fr. Anthony Scott is offering a tremendous and indispensableable service and ministry to the Orthodox Church. Stewardship Advocates fills the gap of understanding between what is taught in seminary and the challenges we face in the real world as we work to advance the ministry of our Lord. Our parish has benefited greatly from the ministry of Fr. Anthony Scott.
–Fr. John Cassar
