Paul H. Walker at Lee College Heritage Week (1973): “Delivered unto Death for Jesus’ Sake”
With humor, sincerity, and a powerful illustration from his pioneer ministry, Paul H. Walker speaks from 2 Corinthians 4:10-11 about the necessity of being prepared to live and die for Christ. His wife, Margaret, joins him in song.
Born and raised on a North Dakota ranch with Native American playmates, Paul Haven Walker and his family traveled to Cleveland, TN, in 1919 to attend the Church of God General Assembly. He stayed to enroll in the fourth term of Bible Training School (Lee University). After BTS, he spent several months preaching and establishing churches in North Carolina and Maryland, including Princess Anne, where he became pastor. Walker became Maryland’s first state overseer in 1920 and married Margaret Holloway two years later. During his ministry, he preached in 64 countries, helped establish Northwest Bible College in the Dakotas and International Bible College in Canada, and established 64 churches in a dozen states in the U.S.A., Canada, and England. Forty ministers accepted their call as a result of his ministry.
