GARY & SUSAN WATKINS
Kingdom Ventures International was born out our passion to see the kingdom of God advanced locally and around the world by making Jesus known through teaching, healing, deliverance and compassion to those in need.
For 40 years, we have journeyed together with God in ministry. A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, Gary served as Assistant and Associate Pastor for 7 years at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Santa Ana, California. He later served as Senior Pastor of Christ Pacific Church in Huntington Beach, California for 30 years. We have a hunger to see God save, heal and deliver. We have spent these years in ministry participating and training at conferences led by John Wimber of The Vineyard, Brad Long of Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International, Peter Wagner and Ken Fish of Kingdom Fire Ministries/Orbis Ministries.
Over the course of these years, we hosted conferences for our church, bringing many to salvation, teaching, training and mentoring others in prayer and healing ministry. God has planted within our hearts a call and a desire to minister in both local, national and international missions in this way.
Now retired from the pastoral ministry, we are experiencing a new season of ministry! We are free to go and serve whenever and wherever mission opportunities arise. We invite you to partner with us in advancing God’s Kingdom, one life at a time!
