Austin Watts

Student Ministry Intern

As an intern, Austin serves as the student pastor over our Student Ministry. His passion is to lead others to know God and make Him known.

Mid-way through college, God put on his heart the desire to do full-time ministry. Soon after, he transferred to and graduated from Ohio Christian University with a degree in Biblical Studies.
Austin met his fiancée on a mission trip to Togo, West Africa in 2018. After moving out of state, God called him back to Ohio to serve at Northwest in 2019.
