Steve Watson has been the senior pastor of Reservoir Church since July, 2013. Prior to that, he served as the principal of Watertown High School, as a middle- and high-school English teacher in the Boston Public Schools, and as a campus staff minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. The throughlines in Steve’s life and career have been teaching, coaching and mentoring, organizational and community development, and public healing and justice. In addition to his work at Reservoir, Steve serves on the Boards of Greater Boston Interfaith Organization and Samaritans. Steve has a B.A. in music from Brandeis University, a Masters in Education from UMASS-Boston, and is enrolled in the Doctorate in Ministry program at the Center for Open and Relational Theology.
Born and raised in eastern Massachusetts, Steve has traveled extensively but has never left behind his great affection for the Charles River, the Red Sox, and (almost) all things New England. Steve and his wife Grace, who shares his local roots and works as the director of Next Steps in Brookline, became members of Reservoir Church in 2006. They love this community’s accessibility, authenticity, and vibrant connection with a living God. Steve and Grace have three teenage children. Beyond Reservoir and his family, Steve also loves hiking and walking in the woods, reading fiction and theology, eating, and shared adventures.
