Scott Lamar Tatum (July 31, 1920[1] – September 21, 2018) was a Southern Baptist clergyman, the pastor emeritus of Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana. During his tenure, Broadmoor was for a time the largest church in the Louisiana Baptist Convention.[2]

Born in Converse in Sabine Parish in northwestern Louisiana, Tatum was one of seven children, six now deceased, of James Wilson Tatum and the former Maggie Hood. He was reared in nearby Mansfield in DeSoto Parish. He graduated from Mansfield High School, Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, at which he earned the degree Doctor of Theology. After several early pastorates in Texas, Tatum was the pastor of Broadmoor Baptist Church from 1951 to 1974. For the following fourteen years, he taught preaching at Southwestern Seminary.[3] At Southwestern, Tatum espoused the unusual view that the Apostle Paul did not regard his New Testament writings to be Scripture.[4]

Tatum was a trustee for Southwestern Seminary, Louisiana College in Pineville, Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina, and the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board in Nashville, Tennessee.. He was president of the Louisiana Baptist Convention from 1964 to 1965 and preached the annual sermon at the Southern Baptist Convention in 1969, which met that year in New Orleans. Particularly interested in missions, he preached in numerous overseas assignments and revivals. Tatum is a "Distinguished Alumnus" of Southwestern Seminary, at which a preaching chapel there is named in his honor.[3]

On June 17, 1942, Tatum married the former Doris Ray (born July 7, 1923), daughter of I. B. and Wilma Ray of Floresville in Wilson County, Texas, in a Wednesday evening ceremony at the First Baptist Church of San Antonio, Texas.[4][2] At the time of his death they had been wed for just over seventy-six years. The Tatums have three children, Wilson Ray Tatum and his wife, Cheryl, of Frost in Navaroo County, Texas; Patricia "Trisha" Price and her husband, Richard, of Shreveport; daughter Kathryn Fay Land and her husband, Terry, of Texarkana, Texas. Tatum died at the age of ninety-eight. Services were held on September 29, 2018, with Dr. Wilson Tatum officiating, at the Broadmoor Baptist Church worship center north.[3]
