Through years of her prayers after their marriage in 1974, and the prayers of many others, Walt received Jesus as his Lord and Savior on October 20, 2012.
He grew up in Elizabeth, PA. Susan was born and grew up in Goldsboro, NC. Walt and Susan met in Youngstown, OH and have lived in Lincoln, NE, Columbus, OH, Elizabeth, PA, and Philadelphia, PA before settling in Greensburg with their son and daughter. He has undergraduate and graduate degrees in business and attended Calvary Chapel Bible College. Susan attended Bible college in Nashville, TN. Walt and Susan have 3 granddaughters and 2 grandsons.
Walt’s heart is to teach and challenge and encourage others in the Word of God. He assists in church administration. He and Susan participate in several small group Bible studies, techniques for Bible study classes and new believers’ classes.
Walt desires to be an obedient servant anywhere God places him. He wants to be ready to “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” (2 Timothy 4:2) and to “walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.” (1 Thessalonians 2:12)
