Pastor Walter L. Fields’ spiritual pilgrimage is divinely inspired and uniquely complex. The fact that he has evolved like a phoenix from a series of events is a testimony to his faith and solid upbringing. As a youth he eagerly embraced biblical tenets and developed a strong Christian foundation. His formative years at both The Cornerstone Church Of God In Christ and Vessels of Honour Church afforded him the opportunity to cultivate not only his musical talents but also embrace a spiritual awareness. Inevitably, Pastor Fields yielded to an unconditional acceptance to God’s call on his life to ministry. Walter’s parents, Pastor Walter L. Fields, Sr. and Missionary Mozell Fields, planted the seeds in him to become a compassionate visionary, who would overcome epic challenges and emerge as a resilient trophy of grace and an insightful spiritual leader.
Walter’s heartfelt covenant and devout stewardship forged his commitment to accept a Divine assignment to ministry and address contemporary issues that impact his community. His educational preparation includes a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications & Business from Concordia University where he is also currently pursuing his Master’s in Corporate Communications. Walter’s desire to meet the people “where they are” and combine traditional values with contemporary tools to meet the needs of his community is purpose driven. His ministries include but are not limited to working with ex offenders to transition them back into our community with life sustaining jobs and lifestyles, educational tutoring for youth and instructing youth on the importance of a healthy mind, body and spirit. He founded and operates a social service agency, Project restoration, since June of 2008. The mission of the agency is to provide former offenders with the tools to restore their lives and equip them with the resources necessary to obtain gainful employment. This is a ministry that he is very involved in and committed to.
