Dr. Peter Evander
Dr. Peter Evander received Jesus into his heart as his personal Savior at the age of 16 after being drawn to church by other teens. Under the mentorship of Pastor Donald E. Cunningham, he rapidly embraced the role of a soul winner.
Just months after getting saved, Dr. Evander committed his life to serve God in the ministry however God chose to use him. He earned his undergraduate degree from Northeast Baptist Bible College in 1996. Dr. Evander & his wife Stacey have been happily married and serving the Lord together for over 26 years. God has blessed them with one daughter.
Driven by a genuine desire to improve his grasp of God’s Word, Dr. Evander returned to formal studies twelve years after initially graduating from Bible college. While balancing pastoral responsibilities, he obtained a Master of Biblical Studies from Gethsemane Bible Institute and subsequently a Doctorate of Biblical Studies & Pastoral Theology from Slidell Baptist Seminary.
Dr. Evander has faithfully served the Lord in various pastor roles in independent fundamental Baptist churches for over 25 years. His profound love for God’s Word has cultivated a fervent passion for soul-winning, nurturing believers’ growth, training God’s servants, and dedicating himself wholeheartedly to God’s service until the end. Above all, his greatest aspiration is to hear Jesus say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!”
Dr. Peter Evander has been with IBOC since 2022 and is currently part of the administration at IBOC as the Registrar and Academic Dean.
