David Watkins

David Watkins has a BA degree from Oklahoma Baptist University and went on to receive his Master of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in 1982. He has pastored Heritage Baptist Church in Blaine, Minnesota, for 29 years.  He and his wife Linda began home educating their eight children in 1986, just before the Minnesota homeschool law was passed by the legislature. David had been the Chairman of the Board of Directors of MÂCHÉ for seven years before becoming the Executive Director in 2011. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the National Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership (NACHEL), which is a national organization that serves homeschool leaders from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He sees the eternal benefits of Christian home education and the importance of encouraging and equipping younger home educating families. His desire is to mentor a second generation of homeschoolers who are willing to take the baton and run well. In his spare time, David enjoys hunting and playing with his thirteen grandchildren.
