Nick Watts


Born and raised in Abilene, TX, Nick met the love of his life, Michelle Pittam (a native of Lovington, NM), while attending college in Abilene.  Married in 1985, the Lord blessed them with three children: Kelsie, Jordan, and Macy.

Nick professed his faith in Christ at the age of 11 due to the influence of his grandparents.  He dedicated his life to full-time, vocational ministry on July 15, 1980.

Ministry Experience

For most of his life, Nick has served as a full-time Youth Pastor, working with and serving along side some of the most wonderful teenagers (and their parents) on the planet.  Some have affectionately described student ministry as Wild Life Management - and that would be accurate.  :))

Being hired for his first Youth Pastor position in 1983, Nick went on to serve in churches in East, Central & West Texas, arriving at Bacon Heights in 2008.  After leading the music/worship ministry for 9 years, Nick transitioned into the role of overseeing and leading all aspects of the Biblical teaching and learning ministries.

Nick & Michelle have had the joy of traveling all over the world, being a part of mission endeavors that include Russia, Germany, Morocco, Switzerland, England and Wales.


Nick graduated from Hardin-Simmons University in 1986 with a Bachelor degree in Music.  In 1991, Nick attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he pursued biblical studies and evangelism.  Finally, in 2014, Nick began pursuing a Masters degree in Christian Apologetics (a defense of the Christian faith) from Houston Baptist University.
