The Rev. Kevin Everett
Title: Priest
Church: Chapel of the Holy Spirit; also affiliated with The First United Methodist Church, Belen, NM
Bio: I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and I grew up in a Christian home. Having confessed my faith in Christ at an early age, I committed my life to ministry at the age of sixteen and pursued an education in theology and ministry. I have been married to my wonderful wife, Donna for thirty years, and we have four grown children, and one grandchild. I served as a pastor of Baptist churches for over twenty years in Oklahoma and Texas, however, my theology became more sacramental and I sought a place of ministry where I could serve and be true to my convictions. In 2014, I was ordained as a deacon and then as a priest in apostolic succession as part of The International Free Protestant Episcopal Church, which was part of the Anglican Free Communion. In 2018, this jurisdiction had become very small and the bishop dissolved it. In December 2018, I sought incardination in the EACA. I completed a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2001 and have done work toward a Ph.D with the Graduate Theological Foundation and the continuing education department of Oxford University through the Summer Theology Program at Christ Church College, Oxford. I have served as a correctional chaplain since 2015, and I am currently a chaplain with the New Mexico Corrections Department, serving at the Penitentiary of New Mexico in Santa Fe.
