Pastor Ovitt and Yvonne

Pastor Ovitt and Yvonne were born and raised 

in Island Pond, Vermont.

He was saved June 24, 1983 in Hanover, N.H.

Yvonne was saved in Nov. 1975.

In November 1987, the Ovitt family moved 

from Vermont to Haines City, Florida.  

They started attending the Baptist Temple of Dundee upon arriving in Florida. They drove the church van for several years. 


  In 1992 after God called him to preach, Brother Ovitt became the Youth Pastor where he served for six years.  They have been active in the music ministry 

at the Church since arriving.  


In 2002, a full time position opened for a music

director, and God saw fit for Bro. Ovitt to fill that position. He was ordained and became the

associate Pastor at that time.  


On Aug. 19, 2012; three months after the retirement of Pastor Lyle, Pastor Ovitt was voted in

as the new Pastor at Baptist Temple.
