Lesha joined us in 2019 originally as our “Guest Children’s Minister” and finally accepting the call as our full-time Family Minister in January, 2020. Her background in ministry began formally in October 2000 with ordination to serve Christ’s Kingdom in the area of Minister of the Gospel. Prior to that time, she served in evangelical ministry through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as a Children’s Evangelist, Educational consultant for Character Education, Prayer breakfasts keynote speaker, and led volunteers to act as counselors/encouragers leading individuals to Christ during altar calls.
Lesha and her husband, Lavell Everett, have called Madison County home for the last 23 years with service in the ministry for Lesha and the Madison County School System for Lavell. They have two sons, Judson and Campbell. We grew from a couple to a family professionally, spiritually, emotionally and now we feel the call to assist in the guidance of others along their journey.
Lesha works with our preschoolers, school-age children, youth, and adults at Locust Grove. She is often in our local schools as a guest speaker, and active in local ministry opportunities in our community.
