Meet The Ordinand
Cameron “Cam” Walker is finishing his senior year at Nashotah House Theological Seminary in Nashotah, Wisconsin. In seminary, Cam serves as the senior class representative and as a choral scholar in the seminary chapel.
Prior to seminary, Cam worked at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Detroit, Michigan, as Programs Associate. It is there where he discovered his love for pastoral ministry and confirmed his calling to ordained ministry. Originally brought up in the Church of the Nazarene, Cam first discovered the Episcopal Church through a British Literature course in college focused on the metaphysical poets and the Book of Common Prayer. In his last semester of college, Cam interned at the Washington National Cathedral in their programs department, participating and helping with their eworld-renowned concerts and lecture series.
Cam earned his Bachelor of Arts in political science and legal studies from Olivet Nazarene University in 2018. While in college, Cam actively participated in student council, student-based law societies, and marching and symphonic band. Originally trained in trumpet and tenor saxophone, Cam now primarily uses his love for music in his seminary choir. In his free time Cam enjoys reading biographies, traveling, being anywhere near the water, cooking, gardening, collecting, and being with his family.
Originally from Fenton, Michigan, Cam is the son of Darrin and Melony Walker. It is their commitment to the Church and continued prayers that Cam credits to planting the seeds of this calling in his heart. It is also to the rest of his family and friends that have encouraged, supported, and discerned this calling that he gives profound thanks and appreciation.
Cam eagerly looks forward to making his home in the Diocese of Long Island and beginning his ordained ministry in service to Jesus Christ and His Church.
