Meet Our Staff
The Rev. Ben G. Robertson IV.
Rector | email@example.com
Ben is the 10th Rector of All Saints. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, he graduated from Kenyon College in 1996 and Virginia Theological Seminary in 2003. Before being called to All Saints in 2023, Ben served parishes in Louisville, Gastonia, NC, Memphis, and most recently as Rector of the Chapel of the Cross in Madison, MS. Between college and seminary, he worked as a Legislative Aide in the U.S. House of Representatives. Ben is married to Dr. Ellen Robertson and they are blessed with two children, Anna and Henry. Ellen is a member of the faculty at Randolph-Macon College and part of the new Physician Assistant program.
Ben’s passions in the Church are many, especially ministry with children and families, leadership development, using social media as an agent for evangelism, and introducing folks to the traditions of Episcopal worship.
Ben’s favorite prayer was written by the Rev. Addison K. Groff. It prays, in part, “disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wilder seas where storms will show Your mastery; where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.”
Director of Music | firstname.lastname@example.org
Scott was born and raised as a Methodist pastor's son in West Virginia. While growing up, he sang in the church choirs in the churches his father served, and decided at an early age to become a church musician. In his spare time, he enjoys tinkering with computers, working on his house, and any project he can get his hands on. Since moving to Richmond, he's become a roller coaster enthusiast, and can be found on the tallest and fastest coaster with the shortest line. Scott, his wife Amy, and their daughter live in Bon Air.
Serving as a church musician for almost 25 years, Scott began his career at the age of 15 with his first church position in Athens, West Virginia. After high school, he moved to Ohio to continue his education, and attended Ohio Wesleyan and Cedarville Universities. For 10 years, he served as the Tonal Director of Muller Pipe Organ Company in Croton, Ohio (a role he continues in a part-time capacity).
In 2012, Scott earned his Masters of Music in Organ Performance from Cleveland Institute of Music,
where he was a student of Todd Wilson. Before joining the All Saints Staff at the beginning of 2016, he
was the organist and choirmaster at St. Luke’s in Granville, Ohio for over 10 years.
As Director of Music at All Saints, he is responsible for coordinating all worship music as well as overseeing the many different choirs. He is passionate about showing God's presence through music, and helping raise new generations of musicians through music education. Scott’s favorite liturgy is the Easter Vigil, the Saturday right before Easter, because it tells the "whole story", while the music and liturgy focus on the central goal of resurrection.
