Rev. Dana Everhart
Atlanta Emory District
A native of Brandon, FL, Dana felt God’s call into Ordained Ministry when he was in Junior High. A member of Brandon First UMC, he learned ministry in the UMYF, in the Youth Choir, on the Administrative Board as Youth President and from pastors like Dr. Ray Harrison, Dr. Bob Chapman and others. Dana is a graduate of Florida Southern College and Candler School of Theology. He has served numerous churches including Salem UMC, Aldersgate UMC, Elberton FUMC, Moreland UMC, Faith UMC, Bright Star UMC, Zoar UMC, and McDonough FUMC. His most recent appointment has been Atlanta Emory District Superintendent. As of June, Dana will become the new Director of the Office of Ministerial Services and Board of Ministries Registrar. Coupled with his ministry experience, Dana’s gifts uniquely lend themselves to effectively recruiting, forming, and developing clergy. Dana and his wife Sally are the proud parents of three children: Matthew who is the band director at Elbert County High School in Elberton, GA, Jacob who has joined the work force, serving in Atlanta, and Katie who is a student at UNG in Dahlonega.
