Leader Bio:
Dr. Zeddie D. Scott is a native of Macon, Georgia. His earliest memories of his parents are that his father died when he was a young child and his mother being a devout Christian who reared eleven children as a single parent. His mother exercised her faith and had a deep devotion to Jesus Christ. In many ways, Dr. Scott experienced solidarity with his mother and assumes that this was the same for his siblings because it was their mother who first exposed them to the gospel of Jesus Christ. She taught her children how to pray and by her example they learned to depend on Jesus Christ. In observing his mother’s behavior as he was growing up, Dr. Scott realized that prayer is a life style. Indeed it was through precept and example that his mother taught her children that prayer is conversation with God. It was to a great degree of his mother’s stellar example that Dr. Scott learned to model and shape his own prayer life.

Although Dr. Scott grew up in poverty, his mother always found ways to provide her children with the necessities of life. He remembers his mother walking through the house calling the name JESUS and this made a profound impression on him. Everything always worked out for the family’s benefit. Dr. Scott attributes this to his mother’s anchored faith which was much bigger than her. Dr. Scott’s mother served the church and GOD’S kingdom until she went home to be with the LORD.

Dr. Scott was educated in the Bibb County Public School System. He attended L.H. Williams Elementary, Ballard Hudson and Lanier High School. He is a graduate of Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia where he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology in 1974. He was initiated into Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.in the spring of 1973 thru the Alpha Sigma Chapter at Morris Brown College. Having received his call into ministry, he continued his educational endeavors at Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse School of Religion in Atlanta, Georgia from which he received a Master of Divinity in 1987. Dr. Scott continued his study and received a Doctor of Ministry in 2003 from United Theological Seminary which is located in Dayton, Ohio.

Dr. Scott is a member of the Metropolitan Baptist Ministers Union Inc., Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc. the National Dean’s List of 1986-87 and the author of "A Guide to Spiritual & Economic Empowerment"(2009).

Dr. Scott served his country as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps and is a Vietnam Veteran from which he received many awards for valor in combat. He is a retiree from the U. S. Federal Government.

Dr. Scott is the father of one son, David Michael Scott.

While attending college in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Scott became a member of Beulah Baptist Church where Rev. E.D. Thomas was the pastor. While there, he was a member of the Male Chorus, the Senior Choir and Sunday School. At Beulah, Dr. Scott says that he met some of the greatest people in the world and he became active in the life of that church. Thus he made Beulah and Atlanta his home and has lived here since 1970. He was licensed and ordained into the Gospel ministry at Beulah. Beulah gave him an opportunity to grow spiritually and socially in the inner-city of Atlanta, Georgia. He served as Interim Pastor of Beulah Baptist Church, Decatur, Georgia from 1990-1991. He also served as Interim Pastor at The Greater Solid Rock Baptist Church which located in Riverdale, Georgia until 2015.

Currently, Dr. Zeddie D. Scott serves as the 11th Senior Pastor of the historical Liberty Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.   Edit

History of Liberty Baptist Church, Atlanta GA

It was an unpretentious beginning. No fanfare, no grand ceremonies, no hue and cry: just a small group of devout Christians meeting in the modest Atlanta home of a fellow Christian on January 5, 1908, to discuss the affairs of Wheat Street Baptist Church. What happened as a result of prayer and discussion was something completely different. What happened was the beginning of "The Christian Movement" and the birth of Liberty Baptist Church.

On May 17, 1908, Liberty Baptist Church was organized as a Missionary Baptist Church. Liberty's original congregation was led by the Dr. J.W. Jackson, who began his pastorate on February 1, 1909. During Dr. Jackson's tenure, significant remodeling of Liberty's property was completed and more than $2,000 was raised to pay off the mortgage balance. Dr. Jackson served until December 14, 1914.

In January 1915, the Reverend T.L. Ballou was called as Liberty's second pastor. A great evangelist, Reverend Ballou served until December of that year.

Dr. Ernest Hall was installed as Liberty's third pastor on the third Sunday in August, 1916. During his ministry, the church building was remodeled and enlarged, and "The Daughters of Liberty" and the first male and female usher boards were established. Dr. Hall resigned in December 1925 to accept a pastorate in Cleveland, Ohio.

Reverend C.N. Perry was called as Liberty's fourth pastor on September 28, 1926. He served for four years until September, 1930. During his tenure, four church clubs were organized and The Liberty Echo began publication as the church newspaper.

In April 1931, Reverend James J. Clow accepted the call as Liberty's fifth pastor and began a five-year ministry. Liberty hosted one of the first Christian Leadership Training Sessions to be held in an African American church during that time. Rev. Clow directed the reorganization of the Baptist Young Peoples Union (BYPU) and the publication of a new church newspaper, The Liberty Bell.

In June of 1936, Reverend Burgay L. Davis was called as Liberty's sixth pastor and oversaw the burning of Liberty*s final mortgage, the reorganization of the BYPU into the Baptist Training Union (BTU) and organization of the Gospel Choir.

Reverend George W. Dudley became Liberty's seventh pastor on May 1, 1948, and played a major role in the expansion of church programs. He also oversaw publication of the church magazine, The Liberty Messenger. Reverend Dudley resigned in October 1957 to accept a call in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

Dr. Melvin H. Watson, distinguished chairman of Morehouse College's Department of Religion was called as Liberty's eighth pastor on April 2, 1958. His administration saw increased emphasis on youth programs and Christian fellowship among adult members, increased member involvement in the community, and modernization of the physical plant. Dr. Watson retired on January 31, 1989, after 31 years which made him the longest serving pastor in Liberty's history. He served as Liberty's Pastor-Emeritus until his transition in 2006.

The church called Reverend John H. Cross to act as interim pastor effective July 1990. Rev. Cross brought to Liberty 35 years of experience, having served a portion of that time at the historic Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.

Dr. John Sherman Pelt accepted the call as Liberty's ninth pastor on July 4, 1991. Dr. Pelt reorganized the Sunday School, reinstated the Wednesday evening Bible Study and oversaw the building of the new church structure. Dr. Pelt served Liberty until his transition in 2013.

Rev. Kewon M. Foster served as Liberty's tenth pastor after the death of Dr. Pelt. He served along with his wife and three children for one year and a half.

Liberty called Dr. Zeddie D. Scott to serve as interim pastor in 2017 and Dr. Scott accepted the call as Liberty's eleventh pastor in April, 2018.
