Dr. Sir Walter Mack's Bio:
National ministry and international involvement stem from community-focused work that reaches the heart of Godís people. Reverend Dr. Sir Walter Lee Mack, Jr. continues to have a profound impact in the Kingdom of God as he intrinsically inspires and emphatically motivates others to operate in a spirit of excellence while using their gifts and talents for God.

Formally educated at Elon College in Elon, NC (Bachelor of Arts Ė Mass Communications), Duke University in Durham, NC (Master of Divinity) and United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH (Doctor of Ministry), Dr. Mack is devoted to the promotion of education and dedicated to continual advancement. Most recently he completed a continuing education program at Harvard University which focused on economic development and community revitalization where he was both a pupil and invited guest preacher.

As the pastor and teacher at Union Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC, Dr. Mack is devoted to building strong foundations that serve as a framework for propelling the cause of Christ into higher heights and deeper depths. This great man of God was selected to interview with a national commentator on the role of the church in the community. After the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States, he was requested by several media outlets to provide guidance and consolation including the appeal by WXII News Channel 12 to lead the community in a healing process. One year later during Union Baptistís Annual Shekinah Glory Revival, churches of all races, denominations, sizes and cultural backgrounds were led by Dr. Mack in a 9-11 open-air prayer vigil.

Rev. Dr. Sir Walter Lee Mack, Jr. is a strong proponent of ministry beyond the four walls of the church. Having traveled on three continents, Dr. Mackís global work began with international missions trips to Haiti and Israel. In Haiti the focus of his work was on male orphans and persons living with HIV/AIDS. His commitment to outreach stems first from his local ministry which works diligently to meet the educational, social, economic, spiritual and physical needs of his congregation and surrounding region. He has created and implemented such programs as the Family Life Institute, Union Urban Ministries, a Food and Clothing Bank and a Global Missions and Evangelism Conference. Additionally, he has participated in landmark programs such as Bread for the World Institute. This Institute works with leaders from all over the world who have made a commitment to seek justice for people living in a state of poverty throughout the earth. Dr. Mackís emphasis and concentration in this movement is focused on the engagement of policy experts and other leaders who consider and explore the alleviation of hardships of people in Africa.

Dr. Mackís work is perpetuated nationally as leaders, pastors, conference organizers and political officials request the passionate preaching, ardent teaching and zealous training of Dr. Mack for the enlightenment of their followers and the duplication of these and other programs.

The Global Missions and Evangelism Conference is an outreach-centered conference which focuses on the significance of meeting the needs of the less fortunate as well as evangelizing the saving power of Christ. This conference was saturated with detailed information on the importance of how and why missions and evangelism is essential in the Kingdom of God. The conference culminated with the dispatching of attendees into the local communities and praise reports about the number of souls saved or reclaimed and changes in the lives of those who participated. This conference also marked the commencement of an international missions team being deployed for kingdom building each year.

As he works to complete his book on how churches and individuals develop and maintain passion for the Kingdom, Dr. Mack continually seeks God concerning the effective ministry and outreach work which has a profound influence on individuals, families and entire communities. Clearly, his territory has been enlarged.

Dr. Sir Walter Lee Mack, Jr. is a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He is the son of Mrs. Frances Mack and the late Rev. Dr. Sir Walter Mack, Sr. He has made an indelible impression on his community, his nation, his world because he believes in providing sound, practical teaching and keen opportunities to edify the kingdom of God. His ministry is centered on prayer, dynamic worship, study, fellowship and evangelism. Because of his enthusiastic love for Christ and his selfless love for his people, Dr. Mack is committed to letting his light shine so that men may see his good works but glorify God.
