Delena Stuart Watson
Founder & Missions Director of Ragan’s Hope
When asked what Delena is most proud of with her accomplishments, she will answer “her family.” Pictured here are Jennifer, Dan, Delena, Ragan, and Katherine. Delena knows that she and her previous husband Randy (who passed away in 2008) were blessed with wonderful children that are now grown.
Delena was an executive in the corporate sector for many years and accomplished high achievements and awards in the industry she worked in before leaving it to pursue her passion for serving others. She started a care ministry at Fellowship Church that focused on the families of children with medical issues. It soon began to grow, and she developed it into the overall care ministry for all ages and for any member needs that arose. Because of her insight in recognizing the needs of others, the ministry multiplied into several ministries, and she directed approximately 1000 volunteers. Because of her management skills, she was given responsibilities overseeing other departments in addition to Member Care Services.
Delena’s passion is to serve other parents when they have children with medical issues, and while being at the hospitals over the years, she knows firsthand what those needs might be. With God’s direction, she began to know that she needed to develop a nonprofit foundation in order to assist others. That is when Ragan’s HOPE was created. She now serves as the founder of this ministry and knows that in addition to raising her children, this is an accomplishment of which she is very proud.
