Pastor Bob Everest

I ran out of time awhile ago and so I didn't have time to write this then.

If you are looking for a church home at this time, PLEASE check out Christ Covenant! We have Pastor Bob Everest as the leader. He is remarkable! Church services are held every Sunday morning at 9:30.

Bob and Angie Everest moved to Leoti 8 years ago. They moved here with one daughter. Since they moved to Leoti, identical girls and a little boy joined their family. They are great people and are very welcome here!

There are people out there who think that ministers have easy jobs. They just have to show up for work on Sundays. The rest of the week is a breeze! No, that is not quite right. Pastor Bob is SUPPOSED to get one day off every week. However, alot of times, things happen on those days off and he very dutifully and happily goes to work then also.

Pastor Bob makes it a point to go to his congregation members' homes so that he really gets to know each and every one of them individually. He has visited with us several times and each time was fantastic! Not all church ministers find this to be a necessity. Too bad.

In the past, we have had major things come up that we looked at as being emergency issues. All that we had to do was call Bob and he was at our home in the matter of a very few minutes. He talked us through the problems and helped us find peace and answers to whatever was happening at the time. This was the first time that I can remember when I actually felt comfortable enough to let someone else in.

Bob is sooo good about visiting the ill, elderly and shut-ins on a regular basis. They really enjoy and appreciate his visits!

He is available 24-hours-a-day, whenever his wisdom is necessary. I've yet to hear him complain about anything that he does each and every day. As I have pointed out, being a minister is not an easy occupation.

Bob's lovely wife, Angie, is also a jewel! She runs her own daycare business. Leoti is so lucky to have them in our church and in our community!
