Born and raised in Southern California, Pete Watts graduated from California State University, Dominguez Hills. He has a Masters in Communications and Education. As an educator, Pete began teaching elementary school. He later opened the Thurgood Marshall Entrepreneurial Academy Charter Middle School in 2007, where he served as a Principal.
Pete's love for education expanded when he decided to also become a preacher. He was ordained by the Missionary Baptist Church in Compton in 2004, and in 2007, he and his wife, Didi, began plating a church in Carson, CA. In 2008, they launched The R.O.C.K. Church (Reaching Out Christ’s Kingdom), and soon after, Pastor Watts completed his commissioned pastor training program there. Now in 2014, World Impact proudly brings Pastor Watts on staff as their Los Angeles Site Director.
Please pray for Pete and Didi Watts, as they transition into this new calling and role with World Impact Los Angeles!
