Rev. Scott Quinn, M.Div., M.A.
Sott Quinn was ordained as a Lutheran minister after completing a Masters of Divinity, and served as an associate pastor at a congregation in the Dallas, Texas area for five years. After leaving parish ministry, he worked in the non-profit and for-profit sectors, focusing on organizational development and instructional design. In 2005, he completed a Masters of Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. That same year he became an educator and spiritual director at an interfaith spirituality center that
was affiliated with a large hospital system in Austin, Texas. During six years of ministry there, Scott's work included providing “care-for-the-caregiver” programs for staff and patient families, as well as teaching classes for the general public, including Mindfulness, Mindful Photography, and Psychosynthesis.
Since moving to the Bay Area in 2011, he has become a certified hypnotherapist, has completed ChI’s interfaith spiritual direction and supervision of spiritual directors certificate programs, and has transferred his ordination to the ChI community. After serving as Director of The ChI Community for three years, Scott now serves as Interim Director of the Marin Interfaith Council. He is an active member of the Interfaith Counseling Center in San Anselmo, leads worship services at local senior living communities, and has been on the staff of San Francisco Theological Seminary’s spiritual direction program.
