When the pastor of an evangelical church hires a new keyboardist to take his congregation electric, things get weird in a hurry. Objects go missing-paint buckets, Bibles, pieces of the stage, and even the neighborhood dog. Worse, Pastor Zacharias Hembrey himself goes missing the night he's abducted by members of a cartel who've chosen his church as a front for their drug smuggling operation.

While the congregants suspect the new keyboardist is behind the illegal activity, Pastor Zacharias refuses to admit how much his own daughter might be involved. Alternately told from the perspective of the pastor's daughter, Elizabeth, and from Pastor Zacharias, The Watershed Project is a southern literary novel about the limits of faith, the struggle for meaning in a corrupt, dispirited town, and the lengths to which one father will go to reconcile with his rebellious teenage daughter.
