Everett Pollard

Adult Ministries Resident

What do you do?

My official title is Adult Ministries Resident. My responsibilities at the church are broken up into three different categories: seminary education, pastoral education, and administrative duties.

My seminary education is part of a larger education initiative that is carried out by the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches, Denver Seminary, Bethel Seminary (MN), and T.E.D.S (IL).

Both Mark Biehl and Dan Blosser directly oversee the pastoral portions of my education that consists of weekly meetings, visitations, instruction pertaining to counseling, and I also attend many of the council meetings that take place at UCC.

Administratively, I work to assist Pastor Dan Blosser in the area of Adult Ministries.

What do you love most about your job?

Learning from the pastors, fellowship with the people, and seeing God worshipped in word and deed on a daily basis.

 A little bit about your background?

I grew up moving around (Texas, Alabama, and Georgia) because of my dad’s profession in college coaching. It was a fast and fun childhood, but makes it hard to think of one particular place as home. I came to know the Lord at the age of four and have continued to grow in knowledge of and love for Him since. After graduating high school in Atlanta, Georgia it was clear that God was calling me to Taylor University. During my time at Taylor I was fortunate to be a part of the football team, have a two year stent as a “discipleship assistant,” pursue a degree in history, and attend UCC. I am the youngest of three siblings, and the son of wonderful parents who live in Dallas, Texas where they both work for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

What are some of your personal favorites?

I love spending time with my family, movies, learning/talking about history, the Pittsburgh Steelers, exercising, good food, museum visits, watching sports, live music, and road trips.
