Hezekiah Walker is the visionary, founder and Senior Pastor of the Love Fellowship Tabernacle Churches in Brooklyn, New York and Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Pastor Walker shepherds a growing and multi-cultural flock of members varying in age, race and socio-economic backgrounds. Born and raised in Brooklyn in the tumultuous Fort Greene public housing projects, he has risen to build and lead one of the greatest ministries in the Northeast.
Love Fellowship Tabernacle was birthed in November 1993, located at 2425 Pacific Street. The cradle of the Tabernacle’s humble beginnings began with only eight members. The church, located in the East New York section of Brooklyn, focused on the young adolescents in the community. As a result, many young people turned from a life of drugs, crime and sin because of his ability to preach, teach and “rightly divide” the Word of God without fear or reservation.
The need for souls to be saved was always a priority on the heart of Pastor Walker; so on Easter Sunday 1996 Love Fellowship Tabernacle relocated to 464 Liberty Avenue. What had begun with only eight members had quickly blossomed to over 1,000 members.
The vision God gave to Pastor Walker was founded on the three “P’s:” Prayer, Preaching and Praise. As he led the people of God into prayer and praise, he labored diligently in the preaching of the gospel to ensure that people of all ages received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. His ability to motivate, inspire and empower through the Word of God drew people from all walks of life to the Tuesday night prayer and Bible study, now known as the “Prayer Capital of New York City.” Presently, Pastor Walker and the church family are awaiting the construction of their new mega-church facility (The Kingdom Cathedral) to accommodate the overflow of souls.
Recognizing the need for God’s power to be manifested throughout the nation, Pastor Walker, in 1998, established the Love Fellowship Tabernacle of Willingboro, New Jersey. Shortly thereafter in November of 2000, the Lord “enlarged our territory” and the church relocated to Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Since then three (3) more churches were established, one in Long Island, NY, Lilburn, GA and Columbia, SC. Love Fellowship Tabernacle the Kingdom Church is now one church in five (5) locations!
Pastor Hezekiah Walker was ordained Overseer by the late Bishop Kenneth H. Moales Sr. during the 10th Annual Founders Week Celebration. He was later consecrated to the office of Bishop at the 89th Annual Church of our Lord Jesus Christ Convocation, by one of the living patriarchs of Pentecost, Chief Apostle William L. Bonner.
In the Fall of 2008 Bishop Walker was affirmed to the office of Bishop and appointed to the office of Vice Presiding Prelate of the Pentecostal Churches of Jesus Christ by the late Bishop Kenneth H. Moales, Sr.
In September 2010 after the sudden transition of Bishop Kenneth H. Moales, Sr., Bishop Walker was thrust into his next assignment as the Presiding Prelate of the Pentecostal Churches of Jesus Christ. As of June 2011 he was officially Enthroned and installed as the Presiding Prelate of the Pentecostal Churches of Jesus Christ by Bishop Jessie Ellis and Alfred Owens and now serves as an active member of the Joint College of Bishops. Bishop Walker also serves as the President & Founder of The Covenant Keepers International Fellowship which has affiliates in North Carolina, South Carolina, Bahamas, California, Minnesota, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Cape Town, South Africa.
