Lisa Rodriguez-Watson, for over a decade, has served as an urban church planter, collegiate minister, seminary professor and international missionary. Her heart to see people reconciled to God and to one another has led her to invest her life, family and ministry in places and people that have often been looked over by the world. Lisa served as Pink House Director in Fresno, CA and co-founder of a grassroots organization in Memphis, TN that was committed to mobilizing Christians to love their undocumented neighbors, and consider an appropriate Christian response to our nation’s immigration crisis. She works as Leadership Development and Training Director at the Christian Community Development Association, and is a board member of Missio Alliance. Educated at Florida International University and Golden Gate Seminary, she now lives in Washington, DC where she is a mom to 3 fantastic children, Nathan, Elias, and Annelies, and the wife of her best friend Matthew, who serves as East Side Parish Pastor at The District Church.
