More about Kay Watts:


Kay Moll is a graduate of Johnson University and the University of Tennessee. In May of 1969, she married Edward Watts, also a Johnson graduate. They moved to Walshville, IL in August of 1969 where they ministered to the Walshville Christian Church.  Eddie began graduate studies at Lincoln Christian Seminary and Kay taught junior high school in Mt. Olive, Illinois.  Eight months after their marriage, Eddie was killed in a car accident on his way back to attend Homecoming at Johnson.  

Following Eddie’s death, Kay moved back to Tennessee and worked at Johnson until December of 1971.  At that time, she went to Zambia, Africa where she served as a missionary with Zambia Christian Mission through 1979—teaching Bible classes in the public school system and working with young people in local churches. 

From 1980 - 1991 she was the Director of Operations with Good News Productions, International in Joplin, Missouri.  

After being a widow for 22 years, Kay married Tom Moll in December of 1991. Tom’s first wife Julie died from cancer after they had been married for over 23 years.  Tom was ministering at the time of their marriage to the Sunnybrook Christian Church in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Kay then served as the Director of Women’s Ministries at Sunnybrook from1992-1998.

Tom and Kay moved to Mason, Ohio in the fall of 1998 where they ministered to Christ’s Church at Mason until their retirement in 2012. Since their “retirement,” Tom has served full-time as the Chaplain at The Christian Village at Mason, a retirement community of about 500 people and Kay works part-time at Liberty Bible Academy.

Many of Kay’s growing up years were spent on the campus of Johnson University where her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Russell Morgan, served as staff members. Her three sisters (Janis Weedman, Carol Fields, and Judy Mentzer), also graduates of JU, are very actively involved in Christian ministry. 

Tom’s three children, Lori, Rene, and Brian, have become a very important part of Kay’s life. Tom and Kay have fourteen grandchildren in whom they take great delight!


“Women of Hope” is a ministry for widows under the direction of the College Heights Women’s Ministry.
