Potomac Conference Welcomes New Youth Director

Story by Debra Anderson

The Potomac Conference is pleased to introduce Williams Ovalle—a dedicated and passionate leader with a heart for young people—as its new youth director. With a decade of experience within the Potomac Conference, his journey to this role has been nothing short of inspiring.

Born in Guatemala, Ovalle’s story is about determination and faith. He immigrated to the United States at the age of 16, seeking a better future. In June 2013, Ovalle answered the call to become a part of the Potomac Conference family as pastor of the Manassas (Va.) Battlefield Spanish church. Since then, he has tirelessly dedicated himself to nurturing the spiritual growth of young individuals.

His vision as youth director is clear: to equip and inspire the next generation to become devoted disciples of Christ. He envisions a youth community that embraces its calling and actively engages in discipleship.

Charles A. Tapp, conference president, says, “His passion, dedication and vision for our youth will inspire and transform the lives of countless young individuals around the conference. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact he will undoubtedly have on the future leaders of our church.”

One remarkable aspect of Ovalle’s journey is his commitment to personal growth and leadership within the church. He holds the title of Master Guide, showcasing his dedication to Pathfinders.

Outside his ministry, Ovalle cherishes his family time with his wife, Tatiana, and their three children: Vitaly, Matthias and Yana. He is a multifaceted individual who enjoys traveling, playing soccer, reading and, most importantly, sharing the message of Jesus with others.
