Reverend Doctor Vernon C. Walton
The greatest reward for Reverend Vernon C. Walton came the day that he preached his first sermon. Today, as Senior Pastor of Mount Calvary Baptist Church of Englewood, New Jersey, Walton's primary mission is to "make a difference in our community and be a light of hope for the world. Simply stated, Mount Calvary is "A Church Committed to Christ and His Cause."
He earned the Doctor of Ministry Degree from the United Theological Seminary of Dayton, Ohio in December 2003. Walton has been a life-long student of the Word. Born and raised in Jersey City, he received the call during his high school years, which he later answered as a college student. Upon earning his license to preach in 1989 and becoming ordained in 1993, he earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology & Criminal Justice from Virginia Union University and enrolled in the New York Theological Seminary. By 1997, he received his Master of Divinity Degree and began his journey on the path to ministry.
Armed with drive and education, Walton flourished under the tutelage of the late Reverend H. Hudson Bobbitt. "Reverend Bobbitt was an exceptional minister and mentor to me. He played an active role in my development and entrusted me to stand in his place whenever possible," he notes. Walton began his ecclesiastical career at Salem Baptist Church in Jersey City as Associate Minister and made his rounds in general pastoral care. He would later join St. James Baptist Church of Milford, Virginia as Minister of Youth and Young Adults.
During 1995, Walton joined the Washington, D.C.-based Congress of National Black Churches where he was responsible for administrating the Roche/Paterson Black Church Family Initiative. In conjunction with his year-long tenure with the Congress, he joined Mount Olive Baptist Church of Hackensack, New Jersey as Youth Pastor and later filled the position of Assistant Pastor in 1996. While acting as Mount Olive's Chairman of the Youth Advisory Board, his duties afforded him the opportunity to oversee the activities of the scholarship and education committees and assist the church's Senior Pastor with meeting the needs of their 1,900 member parish.
In 1998, Reverend Walton was honored to accept the position of Senior Pastor of Mount Calvary Baptist Church. As the church's fourth Pastor, he has remained committed to building upon Mount Calvary's family-oriented environment.
Ever mindful of the importance of service and community, Walton implemented Mount Calvary's computer-training center and spearheaded the church's efforts in providing a summer performing arts camp as well as a community-wide back-to-school supply party for its youth members. He managed the Bergen County's Community Action Program, "Time and Talents," which offers mentorship to former recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the first faith based collaboration of its kind in the state of New Jersey.
Voted among Gospel Today's "most loved pastors" of 2001, Walton is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades. To his credit, he has been honored with the NAACP's Edward P. Dixon Award for Community Service as well as Humanitarian Awards from the National Conference for Community and Justice and the Jabari Society of Bergen County. Most notable, however, was being selected as one of the "Twenty To Watch Under Forty" by The African American Pulpit Journal, (Summer 2005), the Premiere African American Preaching Journal. He was also selected as one of the "40 Under 40 to Watch" by The Network Journal, (Spring 2010).
In addition to his pastoral duties he was elected to serve as the first African-American Freeholder for the County of Bergen, and also served as immediate past Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Ramapo College. Reverend Walton also acts as Director of Christian Education for the North Jersey Missionary Baptist Association and he is an active member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. He is the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the 1st Bergen Federal Credit Union.
Dr. Walton's most recent accomplishment is the publishing of his first book "Life Lessons: Living, Learning & Trusting God."

For an example of a local politician putting these methodologies to work, let's turn our attention to Cristina Kumka's investigative article on Vernon Walton in the January 30 edition of The Suburbanite.
...
In February 2007, Walton voted to approve a deal between the city and ERA for a $200 million project to be built on the city's largest and most valuable land south of Route 4. At the time, Walton was a member of the city's Planning Board. ...in 2006, records show, Walton reported on a May 2006 ELEC form that he accepted $2,500 from "ERA properties" directly.
Walton refutes the record. He said he never accepted money from a developer with an application on the table.
"That was ERN. That issue was already addressed. It wasn't, period," Walton said last week. Walton said he did speak to someone about the name of the donor on the ELEC form, but couldn't remember that person's name.
ERN Properties of Paramus did not make a donation to the Walton campaign, according to a list of campaign contributions reported by the company.
So, here's a blatant example of a politician utilizing methodology #4, Denials of Reality, after getting caught casting his vote in favor of a contributor's project. In other words, Walton is employing the classic "Who Do You Believe, Me or Your Lyin' Eyes? defense.
I invite you to read the article and check out how the BCDO pay-to-players are utilizing all 5 methodologies to spin us. Walton Endorsed by Ferriero January 23, 2008 | Full Article This past week, Bergen County Democratic Organization Boss Joe Ferriero endorsed Rev. Vernon Walton for County Freeholder, making sure everyone knew that the politically obscure Walton would become the first African-American to hold that office.
...
Walton, who is also a Baptist minister, was a Ferriero ally when he was an Englewood councilman. And that alliance cost Walton his councilman's job. He was defeated in 2006 by another African-American, Gordon Johnson, who just happens to also be a state assemblyman and an opponent of Ferriero's boss-like rule of county Democrats. ( Record, 1/20/08) By announcing his choice of Walton, Mr. Ferriero intends to give Bergen County's first African-American Freeholder the inspiring opportunity to steer no-bid contracts back to Mr. Ferriero's political donors.
...
And it is not new in Rev. Walton's public sector résumé.
Back in 2002 ( Record, 10/22/02), Rev. Walton, a relative newcomer to Englewood, obtained a controversial part-time position as a nebulous "community liaison" for Superintendent John Grieco at $37,500 for ten months' work.
...
In 2003 ( Record, 6/24/04), County Boss Ferriero then enlisted Rev. Walton as an Englewood City Council candidate over the choice of our city's Democratic Municipal Committee.
...
In 2004, Joe Ferriero appointed Rev. Walton to the Ramapo College Board of Trustees . At that time, machine Democrats were trying to install Hudson County politico Joe Doria as Ramapo College President over the objections of a broad coalition of students, citizens and professors. ( Record, 12/21/04)
...
In 2007, Ferriero acolyte Mayor Michael Wildes put Rev. Walton on the Englewood Planning Board, where Walton voted in lockstep with Wildes' Board in granting variances and tax deals to Mr. Ferriero's original clients, Hekemian, Kasparian, Troast.
...
Rev. Walton's three year term as a City Councilman from 2004 to 2006 was undistinguished.
...
Despite his County machine support , Vernon Walton lost his reelection bid to Gordon Johnson by an overwhelming margin.

Although each day presents a new, uncharted journey for the Reverend, he acknowledges that his greatest challenge lies in guiding his congregation to connect with their inner source."There exists an extreme lack of empowerment and self-esteem among many people today," he notes."I do my best to assist them on their journey by assuring them that God has a greater plan.Although the message has been difficult to relay at times, my goal is to help them understand that they can indeed move beyond their present circumstances."
