Laura Everett


Laura Everett is the author of Holy Spokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels, in which Everett approaches urban spirituality through the lense of her daily cycling commute. Everett is an ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ, executive director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches, and an itinerant preacher.

Drawing on many spiritual traditions in her writings, Everett likes to think about how people can build vibrant institutions that both hold tradition and cultivate innovation, especially in working to upend the racism that has divided the church and the nation.

A bicycle evangelist, dedicated urbanist, and crafter, Everett is a graduate of Brown University and Harvard Divinity School and is an advisor for Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School.
