The Rev. Charles W.H. and Mrs. Gertrude Scott are the namesakes for Evangel’s fourth permanent residence hall. The Scotts were early supporters of Evangel – Rev. Scott was the first chairman of the college’s Board of Directors, and Mrs. Scott helped to found the Evangel Ladies Auxiliary. Scott Hall serves as a men’s residence hall, with a housing capacity of 216 students. The male honor floor is located on the first floor of the South wing. Construction was completed in 1972 and the building was renovated in 2005.
Scott Hall is known for having a variety of fun activities every year, including a major barbecue event during the Fall Semester, an annual Super Bowl party, an arm wrestling tournament (yes, seriously), and plenty of other unique activities.
Jonathan Webb is entering his first year as residence director of Scott Hall. The Fort Worth, Texas, native went to college at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, going on to earn his master’s in divinity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts.
While working on his master’s, Jonathan worked part-time with Prison Fellowship Ministries in Boston, studied at Jerusalem University College in Israel and worked as a teaching fellow within Gordon-Conwell’s distance education program. He has also spent two years as a missionary to Japan.
In his free time, Jonathan enjoys fishing, playing tennis, golfing, playing the trumpet and visiting new places.
“College is such a formative time: mentally, spiritually and socially,” he says. “I look forward to investing in and growing with the Evangel community and the men of Scott Hall.”
