Everett, who grew up in Fort Worth, previously was senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Newport News, Va. He is a former president of the John Leland Center for Theological Studies in Arlington, Va.

The 61-year-old Everett in recent months has served as interim pastor of First Baptist Church in Midland. He takes over on Jan. 16.
