T.Wyatt Watkins is a graduate of Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis and holds a degree in violin performance from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. An author, storyteller, and classical and folk musician, Wyatt brings a broad palette of creative and spiritual expression to the ministry of Sunday morning.

As a champion of our call to care for the Earth, Wyatt offers leadership at Cumberland, the eastside of Indianapolis, and statewide through Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light to the task of combatting climate change.
As a founder of Cumberland Arts, Inc., Wyatt is its congregational liaison and entertainment chair for its annual arts festival. He is a charter member of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and performs fiddle in two Irish bands.
