York City and the Bible Tabernacle Christian Center will dedicate a segment of South Pine Street in honor of Bishop Carl Scott at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9, at the center's 361 S. Pine St. location. 

Scott, a York native, founded the Bible Tabernacle Christian Center with his wife in May 1977 and has since served the community as a pastor and community leader.

The street will be named Bishop Carl Scott Street, according to a city news release.

Scott, who was ordained as a bishop in May 2016, has received several awards for service to his church and community, including The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Governor’s Award for Crime Prevention, according the center's website.

“Bishop Carl Scott has been an influential voice and leader in the York community for decades," said York City Mayor Michael Helfrich. "It is our honor to name this portion of Pine Street after him."

The portion of the street being renamed is at the site of the center, which announced the dedication during the “40-60-80 event” in May.

The event honored the bishop's 40 years of preaching, 60 years of marriage and 80 years of life.
