ABOUT J. BARRY WATTS

J. Barry Watts has successfully engaged in an incredibly diverse array of professional endeavors over nearly 30 years. He has been a church planter, a Certified Financial Planner, founder of a broker-dealer trading securities on Wall Street, a real estate developer and investor, a lender, author and teacher, and mission leader. He has founded, grown and transitioned out of a half-dozen companies.

As the owner of the Springfield, Missouri franchise of HomeVestors, the We Buy Ugly Houses® company Barry’s team built the #1 franchise out of 300 offices nationally. They purchased and renovated 400 houses turning them into safe, pleasant homes that transformed streets and neighborhoods in Springfield.

Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000’s, Barry founded and owned a $100 million investment management firm generating revenues that ranked his company #13 out of 3,300 nationwide.

PHILANTHROPIC CONTRIBUTIONS:
Barry’s passion is making a difference in the lives of people and lives by his company’s core value “It’s about the people depending on us.” As such Barry focuses his attention and finances on a mission enterprise that builds houses for impoverished people in Central America while also providing them medical care and spiritual teaching.

ABOUT ABUNDANT LIVING:
For years Barry has been captivated by a simple statement Jesus made found in John 10:10 “I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.” Barry knew that while successful, he wasn’t living abundantly, and it didn’t appear that most of the dedicated Christians he knew were either. That launched Barry on a quest to understand what Jesus meant when he said his purpose was to give people Abundant Life, and led to the discovery of the principles of Abundant Living which he teaches and speaks about in seminars, conferences, and workshops across the country.

EDUCATION:
While well-educated with a graduate degree in theology from Campbellsville University, an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Missouri, and advanced studies in financial planning through The American College, Barry most values the daily education he receives at the feet of the Master who’s continues to teach him how to take the experiences of life—including the hard knocks—and learn from analyzing them through lens of timeless principles found in scripture.
