Rev. Watson was born the seventh of eight children in 1960 in
Little Rock, Arkansas. At the young age of 16, he accepted the
call to preach and two years later was ordained. His first pastorate
was at St. Mark Baptist Church in Little Rock, where he served
for seven years.
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.
