Introducing Walker Moore

This year marks the 19th anniversary of Awe Star Ministries as well as the 39th ministry anniversary of Walker Moore, president and founder of Awe Star Ministries.

During these years of service, God has used Walker and the thousands of teens he has taken overseas to dozens of countries – 40 to be exact – to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These efforts have seen countless people commit their lives to Jesus.

During my tenure as a staff writer for the IMB’s Commission magazine, it was my privilege to travel on a coverage to Hungary with Walker and about 20 teens who, through a Gospel-centric street drama, proclaimed effectively the saving message of our Lord. I saw people of all ages confess their sins and trust in Christ.

Were I a name-dropper, I could cite numerous notable churches in our Southern Baptist Zion who have enjoyed Walker’s communications skills as a preacher of the Gospel and a motivator for missions. Walker also has preached in many churches whose town names don’t even appear on the map. Having been blessed to hear his preaching several times, I can unequivocally say that a pastor and church could hardly do better than to have Walker keynote a missions conference, or provide pulpit supply.

And if your church needs a leader who can organize and even lead your mission team: www.awestar.org.

For more than 10 years, Walker’s popular “Rite of Passage Parenting” column has appeared every week in the Oklahoma Baptist Messenger. In recent years, other state Baptist papers have begun publishing his column. He is also the author of Rite of Passage Parenting: Four Essential Experiences to Equip Your Kids for Life (book and workbook, Nelson Books, 2007).

SBCToday is pleased to have Walker writing for us, and we hope you will enjoy his unique take on life, ministry and parenting as scores of thousands of Southern Baptists have been doing for years.
