Leon Walker Council of Elders member Leon Walker and his wife, Reba, have five children and eight grandchildren.
While studying at Ambassador College (1956 to 1960), Mr. Walker worked in the Spanish Department as a student assistant to the director, Benjamin L. Rea.
Mr. Walker, having graduated from the Pasadena campus that year, was also transferred to Bricket Wood to work full-time in the Spanish Department.At the time, he and Dr. Rea were the only two members of the department.
Mr. Walker also became a faculty member at Bricket Wood in 1960, and continued as such until the college closed in 1974.He taught a number of classes, including Old Testament Survey, Epistles of Paul, Harmony of the Gospels, Intermediate Speech, Advanced Public Speaking, International Relations and Spanish.He was also dean of students from 1972 to 1974.
While in the United Kingdom, Mr. Walker served as associate pastor in the Birmingham congregation from 1963 to 1965, pastor in Bristol from 1965 to 1968, pastor in Warrington from 1968 to 1971 and pastor in London from 1971 to 1974.
He was transferred to Ambassador College in Big Sandy, Texas, after the Bricket Wood campus closed in 1974, and served as chairman of the Theology Department until the Big Sandy campus also closed (1977).
The Walkers then transferred to Pasadena where he was on the theology faculty from 1977 until 1979; he was also dean of faculty in 1979, and became regional director of the Spanish region that same year.When the Advisory Council of Elders was formed by Herbert W. Armstrong in 1981, Mr. Walker was named a member of the Council and served in that capacity until 1995.
Since 1995 Mr. Walker has been directing the Spanish work from his home in Big Sandy.
Mr. Walker was elected to the Council of Elders of UCG in December 1995 and has remained a member of the Council since then.He is one of the three Council members from the international region.
He is currently chairman of the Doctrine Committee and also served in that capacity from 1999 to 2002.Mr. Walker has also served on the Education Committee, the Ethics, Roles and Rules Committee, the Executive Committee, the Media and Communications Committee and the Strategic Planning and Finance Committee.

Leon Walker
It is interesting, to me at least, that Leon Walker is on the above list. This is because he has not been listed on COGWA's congregation's page at all. Leon Walker claimed that when he was in UCG and paid by UCG, he actually was not part of UCG (for those unfamiliar, UCG is the United Church of God, and it suffered a major split last year-most who left became part of COGWA, which officially formed in December of 2010).
Perhaps I should mention that both Larry Salyer and Leon Walker were directors, for a short while, of a temporary group in 2010 called COGA-a group that pretty much publicly stated that it did not stand for proclaiming the gospel (see COGA Rationalizes Away Most Public Gospel Proclamation).

Walker [Leon Walker, council member and the UCG's director of Spanish-speaking operations] said bring it up to the meeting and ask for some answers.
Seated, from the left, were Mr. Thompson; Aaron Dean of Gladewater, Texas; Mr. Jewell; Mr. Holladay; Mr. Walker; Mr. Dick; and Mr. Kubik.
Mr. Walker said the council had not been sure whether the nonvoting elders declined to vote on all issues or only on particular issues such as a doctrine.
Mr. Walker replied that Dr. Levy's point was "obviously a point for the council to discuss."
Mr. Walker, Mr. Dick and Mr. Thompson agreed with Mr. Meeker that that is a problem, and they informed him they planned to discuss it in meetings of the council of elders immediately after the general conference.
Mr. Walker commented that "most of us feel a certain embarrassment in voting for ourselves over certain issues."
