Wayne Walters
How many people have exclaimed upon seeing you: "Look!
...
Well, such was the case for Wayne Walters.
...
It seemed children loved the song as much as the adults, so much so, that they often referred to Wayne as John the Baptist!
...
Wayne Walters was born June 24, 1926, in Van Buren, Arkansas. Wayne was destined to be a man of God being called out not only to be a writer, but also to be a singer, musician and pastor. Wayne's experience with music began by watching his older brother play a guitar. Together, they would actually make homemade strings for their guitars with wire taken from their window screens.
Wayne came to know the Lord in 1949 after his young 4 year-old daughter, Jeanne, was saved in Vacation Bible School and urged her daddy to attend church with her. Both he and his wife, Bobbie, then become active members in their home church. As Wayne's love for the Lord was kindled, he began feeling led to go into a full-time music ministry; thus, "The Christian Troubadours" were formed.
The Troubadours gained in popularity and were invited to sing all over the United States and Canada. In the 1960's, being voted as the "Nation's Number One Country Gospel Quartet," they were invited by the government to go overseas and entertain the troops. Wayne continued writing songs that touched the hearts of man - songs like "Twelve Men" that told the story of the disciples and how they died. "The Church," another song penned by Wayne and recorded by many other artists, speaks of what the church is and what the future holds for it.
...
In 1975, after having spent 20 years in full-time ministry and recording over 20 record albums, Wayne Walters decided it was time to step down from music ministry. Although he continued to accept occasional bookings, the call of God was utmost in his heart and lead him to go in another direction. Wayne had developed a great love of the Word in his travels. His spare time had been spent reading the Bible and pouring over the scriptures. God seemed to be preparing him for this new calling in his life. Wayne eventually became an ordained minister and started a small church in a house in Madison, Tennessee.
image When his time there was done, he moved to Vincennes, Indiana to pastor. After several years, he settled in Washington, Indiana at Faithway Baptist Church where, at 81 years of age, he continues to pastor. The church holds an annual homecoming around Labor Day when many past members of The Christian Troubadours come to join Wayne in song once again.
...
Wayne's wife, Bobbie, died of cancer in March of 2003, but Wayne continues to carry on the message of hope eternal in that heavenly home. Through his ministry and his devotion to God and man, souls have been saved and many lives have been eternally changed. Out of Brother Wayne's church, new pastors have sprung forth to start other churches.
The albums he recorded and the songs he wrote continue to bless and move the hearts of people today as much as years ago. The evidence is in the number of letters, phone calls, and emails he receives from Christian's eager to share stories of how their lives were changed because a young man from Arkansas allowed God to use him in whatever way He saw fit. Wayne feels humbled and honored to have spent his life in this very spiritual way.

...
I never had the privilege of meeting Wayne, but we have quite a few mutual friends, and they have always spoken very highly of him. He's one of those on my "to meet" list.
...
Wayne was one of the first clients I worked with in Nashville upon moving here in 1976. He is indeed a blessing to all that know him.
...
Wayne Walters was not only my brother-in-law, he was also my uncle by marriage because I married his nephew (which made my sister my aunt...oh well.) He was a tremendous witness to us, especially in our early years of marriage.
...
Wayne Walters is one of the best song writers. Wayne, we would love to see you again sometime.
...
It's so good to hear about Wayne and that he's still going strong for the Lord.
...
I remember Wayne, Phil, Harley and Bill and a few others whose names escape me , but they really were Christian Troubadours in action and they inspired me many times.
...
Wayne, (my Dad) is also one of the most prolific songwriters that ever put pen to a gospel song.
...
I traveled with the Christian Troubadours,Wayne Walters is a true man of God. thank the Lord that he let me know Wayne.Unbelievable song writer and a dear,dear friend! Love Ya Wayne
...
I haven't seen brother Wayne for many years now, but I could undoubtedly pick up our friendship where it left off the last time I saw him. He's that kind of brother.
...
Wayne is a wonderful person to know. Never before have I felt more welcomed and accepted than when I am with my church family. Today, September 2, we had our annual Homecoming and once again it was absolutely amazing to hear everyone pickin' and singin'! This wonderful man deserves every bit of recognition he gets for being such an awesome man of God!
...
That's when I first heard Wayne Walters without the Christian Troubadours. Don't get me wrong, I love the Christian Troubadours but there is something about the way Wayne Walters writes, sings, and plays that just reaches way deep into my soul and connects me with God.
I come from a very heavy metal background and I'm really not fond of country music in any way but when I listen to Wayne Walters' music, I feel like I am walking right there with him and Jesus as I hear the words and melodies of his songs. I never get tired of hearing his songs. I am a guitarist and have written some songs as well but again from a whole different style and background. I have been wanting to tell him for years how thankful I am for him and his songs. I cannot find any contact info so hopefully this will reach him as it is long overdue. Thank you Wayne Walters for writing and performing some of the best Gospel songs ever recorded. Does anyone know where I can get any of his cd's or tapes?
...
Wayne Walters and Harvey Yeoman were among our favorite Christian singers and songwriters.
...
Wayne, I recorded John The Baptist in 1969 and it has been the most requested song I have ever done.
...
I have many good memories of Wayne that I will cherish until the Lord takes me home. I pastor my own church now, and have hor 5 years, and I could never have made it without Wayne Walters. My Family and I attended Faithway Baptist Church beginning the day Wayne acceepted the Pastors position. I had one thing happen to me with Bro Wayne that I will never forget. Bro Wayne told the congrgation he had been offered A job with Mel Tillis as his M C in Branson. Well I have to tell you you could have heard A pin drop, I mean it floored every one. At that time we had A gospel group called the Forgiven, and performing with Wayne Walters gives you alot of good memories, but at this time we had A sing to perform at A small Church, and the night before, well I was in bed sound asleep when I heard A voice just as plain as anything I have ever heard, and the voice said { tell Wayne he can not go he is to teach you to preach },

Methodist minister Wayne Walters in Glendale, Calif., avoids most psychological-based counseling because it engenders unusual dependency between parishioner and pastor, which is too often the matrix of sexual improprieties.
