Apostle Dr. Carlton Walker
Dr. Carlton Walker is the co-founder and senior pastor of Bold as a Lion Word of Faith Apostle Training Center. Dr. Walker began ministry in December of 1980 at Red Team Chapel in Fort Hood, Texas. It was in this season that the Lord began to reveal to him the destiny and purpose for his life. In 1983, Dr. Carlton completed his first ministry assignment in Crailsheim, Germany. During his time in Germany, he and his wife evangelized in the city, and through the power of God, brought healing and deliverance to a town that was in bondage. In 1984, he enrolled in Moody Bible Institute and later received his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Dayspring Theological Seminary. For years, Dr. Walker ministered the Gospel while he actively served in the U.S. Army. While stationed in Fort Hood, Texas, Fort McClellan, Alabama, Bad Hen Field, Germany, and Saudi Arabia he preached the Gospel with great courage and holy boldness. Many souls were won, and lives were transformed supernaturally by the power of God.
In 1995, Carlton Walker and his wife were called to Macon, Georgia. Together, they faithfully served as pastors of the Fellowship Church of Praise under the leadership of Dr. David and Vernette Rosier until 2007. In September 2007, they founded Bold as A Lion Family Worship Center in Macon. He declared the following: “Bold as A Lion Family Worship Center would impact the community and the world around them by being set for the defense of the Gospel.” Under their leadership, the church grew and flourished. God enlarged their territory globally with the creation of Bold As A Lion Word of Faith Training Center. The vision of this ministry is to train and develop five-fold ministries, to develop the faith and God-given talents of believers, and to promote humanitarianism around the globe.
In 2016, Dr. Walker was awarded his Doctor of Divinity from St. Thomas Christian University in Jacksonville, Florida. Together, he and his wife Denise have been committed to teaching and preaching the Gospel. They equip believers with spiritual tools to fulfill their purpose in the Kingdom of Christ. In 2020, they founded the Bold as A Lion Word of Faith Training Center in Pakistan. This ministry serves as a safe haven to equip international believers with the Gospel. This team also opened Soaring High Learning Academy for Kids in Pakistan. At this academy, children receive training in Math, Reading, and the Word of God. With the direction of God and apostolic leadership, both the church and the school have been flourishing.
Bold as A Lion continues to partner with God’s people internationally to feed the hungry, dig wells, and support local orphanages. Dr. Walker and his wife also oversee Bold as A Lion Word of Faith Training Center Apostolic Network in Hinesville, Georgia, Knoxville, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Indianapolis, Indiana.
Dr. Walker is a phenomenal apostolic leader; however, his greatest role is being a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He and his wife have been blessed with two anointed children, Carlton Lamar Walker (transitioned) and Tilesha Michelle Walker. They also have two wonderful grandsons, Nathaniel and Judah Walker.
