Laurel Watney

Laurel graduated from Gordon College with a degree in biblical studies and a minor in missions. She and her husband, Mark, were missionaries in Turkey for a year and a half early in their marriage. They moved to Sterling in 2006 and absolutely love it. They have three sons, Caleb, Micah and Josiah.

Laurel began working in the library in 2010 and really enjoys working with the students. She has led women’s Bible studies on campus and is co-leading a group of students to the Mediterranean this summer.

Currently Laurel also serves as the reach/serve pastor for Crosspoint Church, volunteers at the community food bank and is studying biblical counseling. She enjoys riding her bike and walking wherever she can.
