Jamison (Jamie) Watters has eagerly embraced the campus community at Central Christian College of the Bible. He learned about Central from a teacher at a Christian high school, and chose to attend because he wanted to grow spiritually and be around other Christ-followers.
Jamie grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, and plans to study Youth & Family Ministry. After graduation, he wants to return home to help with the youth program in his home church. Jamie’s infectious smile and warm personality help people trust him, and that is helpful as he participates in Central’s ministry to the homeless.
Jamie is also helping with two different youth programs. On Sunday mornings, he helps at Kentucky Road Christian Church in Mexico, Missouri. On Wednesday nights, he works at Timber Lake Christian Church in Moberly.
His excitement for life carries over to his classes. He wrote, “All classes are my favorite because of the lessons and the people teaching those classes. I am learning a lot in Worldviews and Ethics taught by Walt Harper. I thought I knew a lot already, but this class has opened my mind both spiritually and intellectually. What I am learning really makes me think.”
Jamie’s family is one of a kind and believes in God. His mom, Kim, raised him along with his younger brother Jacobi. He looks forward to spending time with them and their extended family during school breaks.
The weather in Missouri has been the hardest adjustment for Jamie as he attends college. The drastic change in temperatures during the span of a day makes him laugh. “I will be bringing my coat back with me after Thanksgiving. In Texas it may get cold, but there is no wind. In Missouri, you have cold AND wind.”
Evan Barthel (his Resident Assistant) is thankful to have Jamie on his floor. He said, “I have been so impressed with Jamie’s concern for the needs of others and their spiritual growth. He has shown an openness to ministering to others that is unusual for freshmen students. Jamie is one of the exceptions, and I am glad he is at Central.”
Jamie recently started working at Subway to help pay for next semester. When asked what he would tell Central’s supporters, he said, “Thank you for the opportunity to attend Central and for being a blessing to me. It means a lot!”
