Julia Watkins

Pastoral Resident – Mission & Outreach Ministry

Julia delights in opportunities to grow in faith alongside others, whether through acts of worship, in simple conversation, or while serving side-by-side.  She finds hope in the slow, transformative power of relationships, through which people from all walks of life might gather around a mutual experience of poverty (whether spiritual, emotional, mental, or physical) to recognize the wealth of love that unites God and all of creation.
