In 1992, 24-year old Walker became the youngest pastor ever at Nashville’s historic Mt. Zion Baptist Church, whose membership had dwindled to 175 congregants. Bishop Walker had a vision for growth and relevance. Under his leadership, the church grew quickly, gaining around 2,000 members every year. The Church now consists of a congregation over 33,000 people.  Dr. Walker not only leads Mt. Zion Baptist Church but also reaches a worldwide audience through online TV as well as multiple TV networks across the USA.  In addition, Dr. Walker is the chairman of the board of Tennessee State University, and serves on the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross, Citizen Bank, and Meharry Medical College. 

Dr. Walker writes, “The world needs not only your ‘what’ but your ‘how’—your know-how. Your vision means nothing if it is out in some theoretical space but never comes down to the real world of practicality and implementation.”
