He has been familiar with The Impact Movement since its beginning and is a dear friend of the ministry. As evidence of his commitment to Impact, Pastor Watts recently wrote an Op-Ed commentary in The Charleston Gazette writing of his support of The Impact Movement. You can read the whole article here, but here is a highlight:
"The Impact Movement may very well the most strategically positioned initiatives in the country to raise up the spiritual and moral leadership needed in the African-American community. This would make Charles and Rebecca Gilmer two of the African-American community's most important leaders. What God is doing through the Impact Movement will do more to positively change the African-American community than Barack Obama's election as president because Impact is raising up the next generation of servant leaders. The Impact Movement may very well be the best-kept secret in the African-American community in this country. It may also be one of the most important initiatives that God will use to revitalize the African-American community in this nation by calling us back to our spiritual heritage."
