Biography of walter d. Huyck Jr. 


Ministry Philosophy 

Our philosophy of ministry is to develop people Spiritually, Physically, and completely.

 personal experience:

Pastor Walter Huyck accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord, and Savior while aboard the U.S.S. Trenton in May of 1986.  He was then in the U.S. Marine Corps and his unit was on deployment to the Mediterranean Sea.  Upon his return to the United States he and his wife joined Blue Creek Baptist Church in Jacksonville, North Carolina.  Then in June of 1987 Pastor Walt experienced, and answered the call to preach.  He was honorably discharged in November of 1988, moved to Georgia, and he and his family joined Trinity Baptist Church.  He was then licensed for the ministry of the gospel in October of 1989.  He served as the Associate Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church.   He and his wife conducted a youth Bible study at their residence, actively directed a neighborhood outreach program, and worked in prison ministry with the Repairers of the Breach Ministry. 

 In 1994 Pastor Walt and his family, now consisting of Walt, Cathy, Kristen, Joseph, Leah and Nathan answered the call to Pastor (Bi-vocationally) Immanuel Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.  Immanuel was about to close its doors with about 22 regular attendees and a facility in need of major renovations.  They lead the Church to rebuild its Sanctuary, which took approximately two years, with no debt.  They then began to reach out to their community in various ways.  They started a Hispanic Ministry, which grew to over 100 in attendance in just two years. 

 In 2000 they left Immanuel Baptist Church and Pastor Walt became the Executive Director of the Sandy Springs Mission.  A faith based ministry that reached out to the various language groups in the Sandy Spring area.  This ministry was largely supported by Mount Vernon Baptist Church.  The ministry was dynamic in its outreach and ministries.  However, as an Executive Director Pastor Walt received few opportunities to preach and that was his burden and calling.

 In 2002 they answer a call to Pastor Sugar Creek Baptist Church in West Terre Haute Indiana.  After nearly three years at Sugar Creek Baptist Church our family was led to start CrossRoads Baptist Church in Terre Haute, Indiana.  This Church started in November of 2005 and is where they currently serve as the Pastoral family. 

 Pastor Walt currently holds the following degrees: 

        Doctor of Ministry, Immanuel Baptist Seminary, Atlanta, GA. 2000.

        Master of Divinity, Immanuel Baptist Seminary, Atlanta, GA. 1998.

        Bachelor in Theology, Immanuel Baptist Seminary, Atlanta, GA. 1996.
