She is a graduate of Memphis Theological seminary and is ordained at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, (Disciples of Christ), she was called as Associate Pastor at First Congo.

Meet the Guest

Since childhood, “Pastor Sonia” of First Congregational Church has been an observer of and a voice for social justice. Her platforms have changed through the years, but never her intentionality or persistence. Sometimes she raises searing questions; sometimes she is moved to act. Walker’s compassion and respect for the journey of childhood guided her to many arenas: quality education for all children; easy access to nutritious food for families; arts exposure and engagement for children, youth and adults; opportunities for people of color when the word “equal” is not enough; and the ministry of reconciliation for all people.
