VFY Campus Ministry seeks to work through Heritage Baptist Church in Clarks Summit, PA to disciple committed Christ-followers to reach out to the 14,000+ college-age young adults in Lackawanna County with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ and to help members of this demographic cohort become mature, reproducing Christ-followers themselves.
Todd Walker is the Director of Campus Ministries with Vision For Youth. He and his wife Janine have 3 young children (going on 4), including identical twin boys. Todd and his family have been campus and young adult missionaries since 2008 when Todd followed God’s call into missions work. They served for 6 years in SE Michigan at the Eastern Michigan University and also helped plant a church to serve the needs of the Christian young adults on campus. Todd served as one of two pastors of the church plant.
In the fall of 2014, the Lord called them to Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania where Todd grew up. They now serve in NE Pennsylvania seeking to reach the thousands of college and university students there with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Todd is gifted to evangelize, disciple, teach, preach, and write. He hosts a college-age podcast where he takes young adults through the Scriptures and answers their questions about the Bible and Christianity. He also has written two Gospel tracts for young adults and is always seeking to write curriculum for this age group.
Todd and Janine love young adults and their testimonies serve this age group extremely well, as both of them were wandering from the Lord during their college years. Todd also deals head on with the topic of sexual purity with young men. Janine is a full-time mom but uses her God-given abilities of serving and hospitality several times a week by having young adults in their home. Todd and Janine’s ministry is local church based. They do all they can to get Christian young men and women into the local church to both grow in the Lord and serve the church with their Spirit-given abilities. Todd and Janine are members of Heritage Baptist Church in Clarks Summit, PA; who serves as their sending church as missionaries, the springboard for their ministry, and where they serve in the young adult ministry called “CrossRoads”.
