Justin & Jessica Helton, Youth Pastors

Justin Helton accepted Jesus as His LORD and Savior at six years old and entered into the ministry at nine. During his fifteen years of ministry, he has had the opportunity to preach to thousands of people across America and now around the world. He has also served as the Assistant Pastor of his grandfather, Pastor Charles Long, of Old Arthur’s Chapel Church during this time. After graduating from Thomas Walker High School, Justin went to World Harvest Bible College, now known as Valor Christian College, in Columbus, Ohio for three years under the pastoral leadership of Pastor Rod Parsley. While there, he played and coached basketball for the Valor Christian College men’s basketball team, served as Residential Director over the men’s dormitories, and even had one gracious opportunity to minister with some of his classmates at World Harvest Church. Justin started his evangelistic ministry, Skywatch Ministries (www.skywatchministries.org), on June 9 of 2008, whose focus is on reaching outside of the four walls of the church with the love and power of God. The ministry consists of nursing home ministry, prison ministry, evangelism, and missionary work in America, Kenya, and India. On July 30, 2011, Justin began a new chapter in his ministry as he married the love of his life, Jessica Montgomery Helton. Jessica first received salvation at six years old, and she is currently a nursing student at Lincoln Memorial University. In May, she will be graduating with an Associates of Science Degree in Nursing. Afterwards, she will be pursing a Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing, and then she will seek to continue to further her education and become a Nurse Practitioner. Justin currently works as a manager of Cumberland Auto Rentals, Inc., which is a rental division of Cumberland Collision Center, Inc., an auto repair business that his father owns in Ewing, Virginia. Today, Justin and Jessica reside in Ewing, Virginia and are very excited about being the Youth Pastors of Our Father’s House!
