This week’s church planter spotlight is focused on Mike Watt and his family. Mike and his wife are actively planting Cross-Work Church in Tahoka, TX. We asked Mike ten questions that will let you know a little more about him.

Tell us a little about your family.

Blanda and I have been married for 18 years. We have 4 boys two of which are twins. Their ages are: 11 years old, 8 years old, and 6 years old.

How long have you been planting in your mission field?

We started with 6 families 1 year ago.

What do you see is unique in your mission field?

Small towns in West Texas are hard. I spend a lot of time with nice “good” people who don’t think nice is good enough to get into heaven.

What different people or groups do you see in your field?

We have both rednecks and Hispanics in our field.

How is your daily time with God?

I take part in morning Scripture reading and study and maintain constant conversation throughout the day.

What do you like to do in your free time?

What’s “free time?” Lol. Between planting, being a husband, and dad, I don’t get much of that. I also run a parachurch outreach ministry. All that to say, I do love a good action movie and playing the occasional video game and reading comic books.

What is your favorite theme ride?

Anything named after Superman.

Where is your favorite place in the world?

My favorite place is the beach.

Share a challenge you are facing right now and how we can pray for you.

What to do next… Easter didn’t really net us new people. A ton of people said “yes” to invites and a ton said they were coming, but in the end we only had 1 family. They returned from their first visit on Christmas.

Share a praise you are excited about that we can share with others.

That 1 family did come back! They were interested in doing the 40 day Red Letter Challenge with our church.

Please pray for Mike and Blanda as they continue to plant Cross-Work Church in Tahoka. Pray for safety and God’s blessings upon their work.
