Dr. Peter Evander
Dr. Peter Evander came to know Jesus as his personal Savior at the age of 16 after initially going to church to meet a pretty girl that he heard attended that church. He quickly learned to be a soul winner under the preaching and guidance of Pastor Donald E. Cunningham. Just months after getting saved, he felt God’s call to the ministry and surrendered his life to whatever God had for him.
He graduated from Northeast Baptist Bible College in 1996. On June 21, 1997, he married the love of his life, Stacey Evander. Twelve years later, with the sincere desire to improve his study of God’s Word and to ensure that he was rightly dividing the Word of Truth each week, he returned to formal studies. While pastoring full-time, he earned his Master of Biblical Studies from Gethsemane Bible Institute and then his Doctorate of Biblical Studies and Pastoral Theology from Slidell Baptist Seminary.
He’s faithfully served our Lord as both assistant and pastor of independent fundamental Baptist churches for 25 years. His love for God’s Word has cultivated in his passion for winning souls, encouraging believers to grow, train God’s servants, and serve God with his all until Jesus calls him home. His greatest desire is for Jesus to say unto him, “Well done thou good and faithful servant!
