The Rev. Dr. Tom Eggebeen has been named the new pastor of the Covenant Presbyterian Church in Westchester.

Eggebeen brings a career of church leadership experience to the Covenant Presbyterian Church, having served congregations in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Michigan, says a church spokesman.

As a pastor, Eggebeen says teaching the Bible is his passion, and he loves helping people learn how to pray simply.

He says he also delights in the discipline and demands of crafting a new Sunday message every week. These can be seen at cove nantstuff.blogspot.com/.
