Our Lead Pastor & His Wife

Gary & Shawn Baldus

Gary Baldus is the Founding & Lead Pastor of New Walk Church. Gary & his wife, Shawn, planted New Walk in October 2006 with a vision of a church that would reach everyone in their community. In that vision would be an emphasis on reaching young people and families. It was a passion for reaching people who were far from God in life and bringing them the hope of Jesus Christ that New Walk was founded.
