Winner of the John Piper Scholarship: Demetrius Walton

Congratulations, Demetrius Walton—you won last fall’s John Piper Scholarship!

demetrius-waltonDemetrius is an army chaplain serving in the Middle East. His focuses are family ministry and marital counseling, and he trains other chaplains to be better counselors. Demetrius grew up in a New Age household, but thanks to New Life, he started to move toward God; in 2000, with the help of The Navigators’ ministry, he became a Christian. He went on to teach at Bible college and serve as a missionary in Cambodia.

Demetrius’ comprehensive John Piper Scholarship will give him the financial means to grow as a teacher and a preacher. In the month of June, he plans to resume his associate pastor duties at Steamtown Church in Scranton, PA.

Ultimately, he plans to return to Asia—to China, to train and equip young pastors in the underground church.

What would you do with the flexibility afforded by a competitive tuition, flexible payments, and a curriculum that lets you keep your job and church while you study, and a terminal degree? Serve abroad, like Demetrius? Step up in your local church? Take your preaching to the next level? Support your family with answers from the Word? Whatever your goals, Knox’s Christ-centered, gospel-driven, and mission-focused education can help you achieve them.
