AGTS News: AGTS Lectureship with Rev. Maurice Watson: Proclamation in the Public Square, January 17-19, 2006

Rev. Maurice Watson
Pastor, Beulahland Bible Church
Macon, Georgia

Rev. Maurice Watson accepted the call to preach the gospel at age 16 and was ordained two years later. His first pastorate was at St. Mark Baptist Church in Little Rock, where he served for seven years. In Novemeber 1988, he accepted the call to pastor Salem Baptist Church in Omaha, Nebraska. During his nearly 16 years at Salem, Pastor Watson impacted the spiritual life and growth of the Salem family in measurable and immeasurable ways. As a direct result of his expository preaching, Salem Baptist Church membership grew from 1,200 to a current membership of over 4,000.

Pastor Watson now serves as senior pastor of Beulahland Bible Church in Macon, Georgia. In addition to his pastoral calling, he has a dynamic itinerant preaching ministry that extends across the continent and globe. Rev. Watson has been described as one of the premier preachers of our generation and is well-known and sought after for his anointed, sound and understandable proclamation of God’s Word. In an effort to better reach the masses, he recently founded Maurice Watson Ministries and is now establishing a television ministry.

His ministry finds him at conferences teamed with preachers like T.D. Jakes, Ralph West, Paul Morton and Tony Evans. He has been a plenary speaker at preaching conferences such as the Hampton University Preachers’ Conference and the E. K. Bailey Conference in Dallas.

Pastor Watson is motivated by his love for people, his love for preaching and his belief that no one is beyond God’s reach. “I was born–put on the Earth, in the Universe–to be a preacher, teacher, and pastor of people. Seeing people helped and seeing people’s lives transformed through what I might have to say or what God might have to say through me motivates me. It’s my purpose for being alive.”
