Bishop William Darryl Scott, Sr. D. D.

Virginia Beach - William Darryl Scott Sr. was born in Portsmouth, Va. to the late Mrs. Hazel V. Scott and the late John R. Scott and departed this life on November 26, 2013. He received his early education in the Portsmouth and Chesapeake Public Schools, respectively, and earned his high school diploma from Crestwood High School. He matriculated to Norfolk State University and studied Economics. He continued his formal preparation at Springfield Christian Seminary and Bible College, a former academic affiliate of Wheaton Seminary in Springfield, Mass., and earned a Bachelor's degree in Theology. He successfully completed the Certification for Church Business Administrators at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Va. and entered the Masters of Divinity Program at the School of Theology at Virginia Union University. In 2005, Bishop Scott earned a Doctorate of Divinity from Springfield Seminary and Bible College and received an honorary doctorate from St. Thomas Christian College, Jacksonville, Fla. in 2007.

Bishop Scott answered the call to the gospel ministry and was licensed to preach on August 31, 1975, at Fourth Baptist Church, Portsmouth, Va. under the pastorate of Rev. Dr. Spencer L. Scott Jr. In October 1980, he was ordained at Fourth Baptist Church by Dr. Spencer L. Scott Jr.; and in November 1980, he accepted the pastorate at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Virginia Beach, Va. On November 11, 2007, he was consecrated to the Office of Bishop. He was designated as a Chief Apostle on November 28, 2009.

As a gifted pianist, organist, and songwriter, Bishop Scott started playing as early as eight years old and willingly shared the gifts and talents God had placed in his seed.

During his tenure at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Bishop Scott developed and implemented many programs to enhance and empower the spiritual growth of the congregation which grew from 100 to over 3,500 members. Many ministers were licensed under his leadership, and many of them have been called to pastorates. Currently the church retains 23 associates that work diligently in ministerial staff leadership positions.

Bishop Scott served the community in many capacities. He co-hosted the popular Sunday morning TV show "Spread A Little Sunshine" with its host, the Reverend Billy Lee, for three years; and he hosted "The Church and Community Forum" radio program sponsored by the Tidewater Co-Op of McDonald's Corporation. He served as vice-chairman of the Virginia Beach Ecumenical Housing Association. Under his leadership, the organization was incorporated and became The Samaritan House. He was an executive board member of the Baptist General Convention; vice-chair of the Community Organization Incentive Grant Committee; a delegate to the President's Summit on Youth, a mayoral appointment; a member of the Church Business Administrators Association; a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors; an executive board member, and a regional vice-president of the Hampton University's Minister's Conference. Additionally, he was affiliated with the National Baptist U.S.A. and served as the moderator for the Norfolk Union Baptist Association for four years. Recently, he was appointed to the Board of Urban Development at Regent University.

In 2003, Everlasting Life Ministries (ELM) was founded by Bishop Scott as the Chief Executive Officer and Rev. Joyce Anne Rose is the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer. ELM is an Evangelistic Empowerment Ministry that reaches local, national, and international boundaries. In 2004, two new ministries sprouted from this seed: Everlasting Life Alliance of Ministries (ELAM) and Vision Feed 5000, a ministry committed to providing food to the homeless, hungry, and others in need.

Bishop Scott successfully ministered in the countries of Cuba, England, Japan, South Africa and West Africa. He was recently invited to the Philippines, India, Japan, and Pakistan.

Knowing that the works of a good man can always be complemented by the support and love of a caring wife, Bishop Scott was happily married for the past 36 years to the former Joyce Anne Rose of Franklin, Va. Reverend J. Rose, as she is lovingly called currently serves as Pastoral Administrative Assistant at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church; Chief Operating Officer of Everlasting Life Ministries (ELM); and Chief Nurse Anesthetist at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. He was the proud father of two wonderful children: Tasha Dominique Scott-Beverly, an Assistant City Attorney with the City of Norfolk, Va. and Vice-President of Ministry and Administrative Overview with Everlasting Life Ministries (ELM); and William Darryl Scott Jr., Director of Operations, Media, and Marketing at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church; and Vice-President of Fiscal Accountability and Business Marketing of Everlasting Life Ministries (ELM), both in Virginia Beach, Va. He had two granddaughters: Nia Alesa Mikkel Beverly and Brooklynn Alexis Mikkel Beverly and a son-in-law, Attorney Michael Beverly. Bishop Scott is survived by his siblings: Carmela Hardy of Chesapeake, Va., Reverend Hazel Greenhowe of Chesterfield, Va., Reverend Cessar L. Scott Sr. (Shirleva) of Richmond, Va., John R. Scott Jr. (Janet) of San Diego, Calif., Spencer Scott, III (Ozella) of Portsmouth, Va., Aaron K. Scott (Donna) of Portsmouth, Va., Karl Marcus Scott of Chesapeake, Va.; a host of nieces, nephews, godchildren and other relatives and friends.

Dinner Fellowship with Bishop Scott
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27

We, the Johnson family of Manassas Park, Virginia wish to express our heartfelt sympathy in the home going of your loved one, Bishop Darryl Scott. Our hearts go out to you as you endure this loss. Yet, we must not grieve without hope, for we wait for that day of great rejoicing when all of God's children will gather together and inherit the joys of Heaven.

Bishop Scott was one of God's true Prophet, Teacher, Mentor and Anointed Preacher. We are so grateful to God that we were allowed the opportunity of having him our Pastor during our time in Chesapeake, Virginia and the relationship that was developed after moving to Northern Virginia. The faith, dedication, sincerity, and love shown by Bishop Scott and family will always be remember. The Johnson family will never forget the fellowship, friendship and love received from the PGBC family and Bishop Scott's family.

Be assured that we will be upholding you in prayer and stand ready to assist you in any other way that we can.

Therefore, on behalf of the entire family, we offer this as an expression of our deepest love and concern for you and your family. May God be your refuge and your strength, a very present help in your time of bereavement.

With loving thoughts and sympathy,

To the family of Bishop William D. Scott, Sr. It is with profound sadness that we extend words of sympathy. To have known Bishop Scott is/was only to love him; we remember that gregarious smile, caring heart, and quick wit when offering warm words of encouragement. We will always remember him as a caring pastor (spiritual leader)who taught tirelessly and made it seem so effortlessly. Bishop Scott was a great orator, but more importantly, he had the uncanning ability to preach and teach to the most humble as well as the most learned individuals, all the while giving them his undivided attention. One phrase that he often stated when teaching was (and I cherish) "read the [holy] word for yourself!" It is our prayer that God will continue to bless and sustain you in the days head.
Be blessed and remember... THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!!

My heart goes out to all those who lovingly survive Bishop Scott. I believe that all who knew him well can still rejoice in and celebrate his life, can still continue to treasure his positive influences and spirit, and can still continue to feel his love, even in the midst of his absence from us here on earth. May God grant that his wife, his son and daughter, the rest of his loving family, and his other loved ones find peace and tranquillity with his passing.

Dear First Family, While we celebrated Bishop Scott on yesterday with praises to the MOST HIGH, I know in the quiet moments and in your daily experiences, your hearts will yearn to call him, see him at the house, hug him and hear him in the pulpit.

Your church family loves you! Let us know how we can help continue the vision. Sincerely, Lytrece Clark

First giving God the honor for his Grace and Mercy. I moved here from New York in 2001, and kept hearing the name Darryl Scott who was ministering at PGBC, So I told myself this man of God must be awesome and I need to see for myself. I started going to PG but never became a member, but each and every service that I attended was very inspirational, allowing me to get pass whatever was going on in my life at that moment.I recall one particular service that I attended and was seated on the front row and one of the ushers gave me a cloth to place on my lap for cover. I knew then that I was in the right place for a blessing. Bishop Scott was truly a Man of God. When I learned of his passing I became very numb and sad, but knowing what he is and will always be one of God's angels I know he would not want to trade places now. I say to the Family keep your heads up knowing that God has your back. To the PG Family hold you heads up and continue to do God's will knowing that joy cometh in the morning. Bishop Scott will be truly missed by all the lives that he has touched. Rest in Peace Bishop.

Rev. Scott performed our wedding ceremony in 1995. He made the ceremony very light-hearted and full of laughter and at the same time kept it reverent. Reverend Scott loved the Lord, his family and his church family. May you find peace in your final resting place.

I moved to the area from N.Y in 2007. I would always pass the church in my travels. The first time I attended a service Bishop Darrly Scott's word touched me deeply. I began to attend the church to receive the word because no one has ever touched me the way Bishop Darryl Scott had. I decided to become save and he baptized me. I would like to thank Bishop Darryl Scott for truly helping me change my life through his word. I offer my condolences to his family. He will truly be missed. Rest in Peace

My deepest sympathy goes out to all of the Scotts. I have known Darryl since he was a little boy. Although, I have not seen him in his adult life, I have spoken with his brother, Cessar, at my home-church, Alfred street baptist in Alexandria, VA and when he eulogized my brother Marvin Jones a few years ago. Marvin and Cessar were close friends throughout the years. I also sang in the high school choir with Carmela. We all grew up in the same neighborhood. I am learning, though, not to put things off because I heard that Darryl had a church in in Chesapeake and I had intended to visit his church on my next visit to the area. So sorry I didn't get that chance. I would love to have seen him. Darryl was such a gifted young man and I know that God has welcomed an angel into His kingdom. Wishing Love, Peace and Mercy for all the family. May God be with you during your time of sorrow.

To Rev. Joyce & Family:
The Joyner Family is deeply saddened by Bishop Scott death. Bishop Scott left a lasting impression in our hearts. The measure of a man: Not-"how did he die"But how did he live Not-"what did he gain" But-what did he give. He gave his all & shared the love for God with all whom he encountered. What a faithful servant, he will be truly missed.

My condolenses to the Scott family and Pleasant Grove for your loss. Although I was not a member of Pleasant Grove Baptist, I did have a chance to attend a few services. I always enjoyed his sermons and felt welcomed by his congregation when attending his church. It was his teachings that led me back to Christ. He will be greatly missed.
