GOD’S MINISTRY – Bruce Walker

  • Trainer Info
Bruce describes himself as a troubled youth who ended up in the inner city which put him on a path to meet Jesus. He has personal experience in what the struggle of the inner city is, as he bottomed out on the streets of Vancouver as a teenager.
“My heart breaks for people in the midst of that struggle.
When I met Jesus I was an adult with a grade nine education and no direction. Over the years God has built me in many areas.
I worked in South Korea as an English Teacher for 4 years, I worked with the homeless for 4 years and I’ve worked in corrections for 13 years, two years of that as a correctional chaplain.
By God’s grace during this time I finished my Bachelor of Arts (Sociology) and Master of Divinity. ”  – Bruce
  • Session Info

Bruce will be speaking about the believer’s identity and purpose in Christ, and how ministry flows from this.
