Pastor Walker is a native of Newark DE. After graduating high school, Patrick entered the military on September 18th 2001 and served four years with the 3rd Ranger Battalion out of Ft. Benning, Georgia as an infantry sergeant. During that time, Patrick grew in his faith and felt the call of God on his life to pursue full time ministerial service.
In 2005, Patrick left the Army to attend the University of Delaware – where he co-led a college ministry on campus. It was here that he first met his future wife, Kristyn Ann Farrell and the two grew together while serving God on campus. In 2006, Patrick transferred to Liberty University as a Biblical Studies major and wrestled for Liberty’s D-I program at HWT.
