Don Everts began writing while spending nearly two decades on college campuses in Washington and Colorado. He wrote his first book, Jesus with Dirty Feet, as a 25 year-old who had just gotten married and moved to Boulder, CO.

Since then Don has published 12 books with InterVarsity Press and is currently mulling over writing an uplifting zombie novel.

Having finally gotten off the college campus, Don is serving as a minister at a nearly 200 year-old Presbyterian Church outside of St. Louis, MO.

“Frustration is oftentimes a wonderful alternative to complacency.”
Don Everts, Breaking the Huddle: How Your Community Can Grow Its Witness

“Referring to the church as a building is like referring to people as two-by-fours.”
Don Everts, Jesus with Dirty Feet: A Down-To-Earth Look at Christianity for the Curious Skeptical
tags: church

“If I were Jesus and were about to hand Peter the authority to start and lead my church on earth, I would want to know if he was going to be more stable, more strong, more consistent. But no. Jesus has only one question for Peter. A simple one: Do you love me?
Do you love me?
He asks three times. And three times Peter says that he does. And three times Jesus calls him to "feed his sheep." Peter's new role and authority, Jesus asserts, do not rest on his strength and consistency and oaths but on his love for Jesus....
Jesus wanted Peter to remember what it was really all about.”
Don Everts, God in the Flesh: What Speechless Lawyers, Kneeling Soldiers and Shocked Crowds Teach Us about Jesus
