Our Leadership Team

The ministry of Watts Bar Church is made possible by a great team of volunteers. However, no team can succeed without great leadership.

Meet the Staff!

Kelly & Denise Goins

Senior Pastors 

Pastors Kelly and Denise became our Senior Pastors in 2012. They have four beautiful kids, two amazing sons-in law, two incredible grandkids, and two annoying dogs.
Kelly is the son of founding Pastors Kenneth and Connie Goins.  
Kelly and Denise are about as real as they come.  They often say that God is doing great things at Watts Bar in spite of them.   God placed them here to continue the atmosphere of grace where EVERYONE is welcome that his parents began 35 years ago.
Kelly’s down to earth and sometimes humorous way of breaking down the Word of God makes it easy to understand and apply to your life.   

Bob RTBob Koerber
