Marvin Walker

High School Minister

I'm excited to be serving Christ here at Northwest as the High School Minister. In January 2018, I began hanging out with students on an interim basis. Serving the Kingdom full-time was something I sensed coming, but I continued working in the corporate world until the Lord opened the door and I joined the Northwest team full time in April 2018.

I heard the gospel in its entirety in 2012 and was discipled in my relationship with Jesus, which ignited my passion for discipling others. Two words that are unique to my odyssey with the Lord are “Normalizing Hearkening.” The first portion of John 10:27 reads, “My sheep hear My voice.” So hearing from on high is a normal thing that we can enjoy with the Good Shepherd. I’ve had the privilege of serving millennials and men, but I realize I’ve simply been wired with a heart for others and have begun to enjoy the mandate to show love because of being loved. I'm thrilled to be spending time reminding students daily that our lives are meaningless without Jesus. We all have the decision to live wild or wise, and having experienced both keeps me clinging to Christ.

Life has been turnt (meaning beyond exciting), having hit the lottery twice (no not the mega millions). By this I mean marrying my bride, Amber, and having my first child on New Year’s Day 2018. I enjoy visiting Southern Cali to spend time with all my family members and friends, all types of exercising, and taking a nap at any point in the day when time allows.
