In 1988, at the age of 28, Rev. Watson began his pastoral ministry at the Salem Baptist Church in Omaha, Nebraska. During his near 16-year tenure at Salem, membership grew from 1,500 to over 4,000 as a direct result of his expository preaching style. In January 2000, the Salem congregation moved into a new 42,000 square foot, multi-million dollar facility, that serves as a vital center of spiritual, educational, social and economic stimulation. The Salem food pantry, day-care center and economic literacy programs are just some of the tangible ways Salem is providing holistic ministry to the local community.

Pastor Watson’s national 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 He is affiliated with the National Baptist Convention.
