The Reverend Bishop Dr. Wazer H. Walker was born and raised in the little Community of Grove Place, on the outskirts of Mandeville, Manchester, Jamaica. He was born in a big but humble family where he had ten sisters and he, the only son. His mother was an ardent Christian and prayer warrior extraordinaire. The Lord called her home from the Christian battlefield thirty-six years (36) ago.
Bishop Walker was raised in the Church of God in Jamaica. He has been saved by the Grace of God, filled with The Holy Ghost and was called to the ministry from the tender age of seventeen (17) years old, in the early nineteen eighties.

Later on, however, as he moved on in life, his ministry locations changed at intervals.
Bishop Walker has been a Preacher and Pastor for over thirty (30) years. He was licensed in January nineteen ninety-one (1991) as a Pastor; he was ordained September nineteen ninety-nine (1999) to the full-time ministry of the word and sacraments. Bishop went through five (5) years of intense theological studies and internship during his formative years of pastoral ministry.

As a Preacher and Liver of the Word, Bishop believes 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth…is a must for all who will dare to take a definite stand for God Almighty in every era…more so in these last of the last days. As a man who has seen his more than his fair share of suffering, he firmly embraces The Book of Lamentation chapter three.
