Pastor Walter received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1984 from Northwest Bible College in Minot, ND. After completing his first two years of college Pastor Walter served as a church planter in Lethbridge. In 1982 he returned to college and finished his degree.
Pastor Walter is very enthusiastic and outgoing. He is very interested in serving a church that has a servant’s attitude, down to earth ministries and wants to be involved in community activities. Though having pastored in bigger centers, he believes the work in smaller communities to be just as vital and necessary. You will find that he and Roxanne are very friendly, caring people.
