Brad Everett graduated from the University of South Florida in 2007 with a degree in Computer Science. During his tenure at USF he was actively involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA where he was a leader for 5 years. Four of these years he was a small group leader for InterVarsity’s Black Campus Ministry. As a leader his responsibilities included leading Bible studies, coordinating and participating in evangelistic outreaches, student recruitment and discipleship, vision creation, and strategic development. After college, Brad was hired by InterVarsity as the BCM staff at USF where he assisted the USF chapter in accomplishing its purpose of establishing and advancing at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture and God's purposes in the world.
After two years in this position he was appointed the Team Leader for the USF chapter where he led a leadership team of 70 students reaching 200 students yearly. Brad recently served as InterVarsity’s Area Director of Tampa Bay where he planted the Suncoast Area and developed staff to reach every college and University Campus in Pinellas and Hillsborough County. Brad currently serves as InterVarsity’s National Associate Director of Black Campus Ministries (BCM) where he is committed to reaching black students and faculty at majority institutions and historically black colleges/universities nationwide, ministering to the unique needs of the community and laboring to develop extraordinary Black Christian leaders and world changers.
Brad has been writing poetry for 12 years. His writing began by including poetry in his visual art. This love for writing grew and he soon found himself writing spoken word poetry as a hobby which naturally grew into a serious expression of his art. His early writing and reciting of spoken word poetry was part of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA's worship team on the USF Tampa campus.
He has participated in mission trips in Africa, Dominican Republic, Haiti, and the Phillippines. He also currently serves as an elder for the Underground Church in St. Petersburg, FL, a Christian non-profit and church plant comprised of over 15 micro-churches. He and his wife Stephania Everett live on the southside of St. Petersburg and are the grateful parents of their sons, Timothy and Langston.
Brad’s life’s calling is to inspire and lead Reconciliation, first to God and then to each other.
