WALTER L. FIELDS, JR.
Pastor Walter L. Fields’ calling is divinely inspired and uniquely purposed. This divine assigning demanded events that pushed him to evolve like a phoenix from fire. As a testimony to his faith and solid upbringing, growing up 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 deeply spiritual awareness. Inevitably, Pastor Fields yielded to an unconditional acceptance of God’s call on his life to ministry. Walter’s parents, Pastor Walter L. Fields, Sr. and Missionary Mozell Fields, planted in him seeds to become a compassionate visionary, who would overcome epic challenges emerging as a resilient trophy of grace and an insightful spiritual leader.
