New Vice President Named

Meet Pastor Tom Walker

by Betsy Carlson, editor

photo of Pastor WalkerTom Walker, a Lutheran pastor with 20 years of work experience in the technology field, is the new vice president of the WordAlone Network.

He is replacing Pastor Mark Chavez who was director, then vice president of WordAlone for a total of 10 years. Besides serving WordAlone, Chavez also worked since the summer of 2006 on the staff and later as director of Lutheran CORE. He is transitioning to working full-time with Lutheran CORE.

Walker was selected vice president by the WordAlone Board of Directors at its quarterly meeting Jan. 15-16 in New Brighton, Minn.

Most recently, Walker served as dean of administration of the Institute of Lutheran Theology for a year. Before that, he directed computer and information services for about three years at Western Iowa Tech Community College, Sioux City, Iowa.

From 2000 to 2006, he was executive director for library and information services at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. In 1990 he accepted a call to Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., where he worked in library and academic technology and led the development of the Fisher’s Net.

Prior to that, he served two congregations in Montana, Faith Lutheran in Great Falls and Calvary Lutheran in Kalispell. He is a graduate of Luther Seminary and Dana College, Blair, Neb.

Walker is married to Kristin Grorud Walker and they have three grown children.

The WordAlone board and staff express their gratitude to Chavez for his many years of fine service and welcome Walker in his new role.
