Judith L. Watt

Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care

Judy is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. She also did course work at McCormick Theological Seminary. Ordained in 1994, she has served as Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Evanston and head of staff at the Presbyterian Church of Palatine. She has also been moderator of the Presbytery of Chicago.

Judy joined the Fourth Church staff as Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care in June 2011. As part of her work in overseeing the ministry of care at and through Fourth Church, Judy works closely with the Board of Deacons and with Stephen Ministry.

In Judy’s words, “The task of preaching is both burden and blessing. The burden is the awesome responsibility owed to the text and to God’s leading in interpreting the text. The blessing is the sense of God’s gracious faithfulness to the preacher in the process.” 

She and her husband, David, are the parents of two adult daughters.
