  • TOBY EVERETT

    SENIOR ADULTS & PASTORAL CARE

    Toby joined the Salem staff in September of 2017. He comes back to Salem after 15 years, having retired from the pastorate of Alice Bell Baptist Church to continue ministry to the Seniors and to assist the Pastor in pastoral care of Salem. It is his great conviction that individuals who have reached the "Mature" years are one of the greatest untapped resources of the church today and ministering to the needs of the church is paramount in the church ministry.
