Our Church Staff
Reverend Katy Walters
Originally a native of North Texas, Rev. Katy Walters joined the Forest Hills family in February 2021. She is a graduate of Austin College in Sherman, Texas where she received a Bachelor of Arts in music, and then went on to earn her Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Practical Theology with a focus in Christian Education from Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta. Rev. Walters has over 15 years of experience working primarily with children and youth, serving churches across the south, as well as working with the Girl Scouts of America. She has previously served as Associate Pastor for congregations in New Braunfels and Atlanta, Georgia.
Pastor Katy loves learning something new every day and has discovered she likes many things that begin with the letter “C,” including: coffee, Christ, children, churches, conferences, crafts, cards, cats (especially one named Milo), comedies, and collecting coffee cups. Katy loves to sit in the sun and read good books, watch Disney movies and British baking shows, always requests bumper lanes while bowling, and seeks to sing something every day. She also daily tries to love like Jesus loves.
