Rev. Amy Walker

Amy was born and raised in SE Texas. Amy holds a Masters degree in Deaf Education and is an Ordained Deacon in the S.E. District.  Her service includes 18.5 years of ministry to Youth, families, Missions, and outreach as well as college ministry. This was prior to her being appointed to the Wesley Foundation-Lamar University campus in 2016.

With this history, Amy is very qualified to serve the church in other capacities such as the College Campus Ministries.
