Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Choir

Hezekiah Walker is known for his music and his world-famous choir, which has received two Grammys and 10 Grammy nominations, among countless other recognized music awards and nominations in gospel music. Walker is the visionary, founder, and Senior Pastor of the Love Fellowship Tabernacle Churches in Brooklyn, New York, and Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Walker shepherds a growing and multicultural flock of members varying in age, race, and socio-economic backgrounds. Born and raised in Brooklyn in the tumultuous Fort Greene public housing projects, Walker has risen to build and lead one of the greatest ministries in the Northeast.

Love Fellowship Tabernacle began 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 have turned from a life of drugs, crime, and sin because of Walker’s ability to preach and teach.

On Easter Sunday in 1996, Love Fellowship Tabernacle relocated to 464 Liberty Avenue, after their community of 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. 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.”

Walker was ordained Overseer by the Honorable Bishop Kenneth H. Moales during our 10th Annual Founders Week Celebration. In his new God-ordained elevation, Overseer Walker has now begun a covenant relationship as a Pastor of Pastors, and currently oversees the entire Northeast jurisdiction. He is the President and Founder of The Covenant Keepers International Fellowship, which includes affiliated churches in North Carolina, South Carolina, California, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New York, and The Bahamas.
