Pastor Jeanette Poteete
Position: Congregational Life


Jeanette's experience as a hospital chaplain and her passion for prayer are just two of the qualifying life experiences she brings to the area of Congregational Life, including visitation and prayer. She has been married to Phil, a retired school teacher for 50 years! Jeanette and Phil have been part of Bakersfield First for 49 years. She taught Bible classes at Stockdale Christian School for 19 of those years, so she knows her stuff.


She claims her home town is Texas but, um, "that's a state, Jeanette."


When she's not at church, you may pass her and Phil riding their Honda Gold Wing. And that's not the only surprising thing about Jeanette.
