Director of Christian Challenge

Neil Walker, is the Director of Christian Challenge at University of Southern California.

I rarely went to church, in the Midwest where I grew up, and had little exposure to Christ. Through the help of some friends, I began a relationship with Jesus in high school. I came to college wanting to know Him better but had no idea how to do that. Then I encountered some guys who really made it practical. One guy in particular took an interest and invested heavily in my life. I began to work to do that same thing with others. I love working with college students today and helping them discover Christ and the life He alone can provide. I feel like college is a key time of life when students make decisions that will impact the rest of their lives.

I am grateful that we get to be a part of that. Melinda and I have been married forty years, have 4 grown children and 10 grandkids and began Challenge at University of Southern California in the 1987-1988 school year.
