Pastor Donnieval Walker was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica. He is the eight of nine children nurtured by two Godly parents, Hubert and Pearl Walker. Their influence prepared him well for his own family with wife Sydonne and two young adults, Doneva and Donnieval.

He received his early education at the Harrison Memorial Preparatory and High School. He received his call to gospel ministry in 1981 and later prepared himself academically at Northern Caribbean University and Andrews University.

He started his internship in January of 1986 and in 1992 he was ordained to the Gospel Ministry. His thirty years of service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church has taken him through the West Jamaica Conference, the Bermuda Conference and now to the Greater New York Conference.

His greatest joy is to see the practical outcomes of the gospel in transformation lives.
