Greg Walker, of Highland, Illinois, is the Chapter Director of Appalachian State University. He served in the US Army as an Airborne Ranger (1/75) and deployed to combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq . After returning home and struggling with the effects of war, Greg became an artist who refined his artistic abilities in Barcelona, Spain and Laguna Beach, CA. After a hopeless pursuit for joy and life fulfillment, he eventually turned to God and got saved by repenting and believing in His only Son Jesus Christ. Since then he has been the assistant director of Global Cross Ministries (2014-2015), director of the annual Truth Festival, an associate pastor, and most importantly an evangelist. He holds a bachelor of arts in religious studies, a master of arts in religion, and is currently completing a master of divinity in apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He and his lovely wife, Lindsey, have two children and live outside of Boone, in East Tennessee.
Greg understands cultural and worldview issues and how to effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a society poisoned by postmodernism. He is passionate about helping to lead and equip Christian university professors, students, and local churches to lovingly defend the historic Christian faith, to be united in Christ, and to be more effective in relational evangelism.
Greg enjoys spending his free time in fellowship with friends and family and especially outdoor activities with his wife and children.
"And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17).
"For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day” (John 6:40)
After coming home from the war, Greg struggled to cope with painful memories of war and the hopeless life he was leading without Christ. One day he walked into a coffee shop and found two men having a Bible study. Greg decided to ask them some questions about religion and while doing so he discovered that one of the men was a fellow Army Airborne Ranger. After many conversations, God used this fellow Army Ranger to deliver the good news, which eventually brought Greg to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.
