W. Ian Walker became a Christian in 1972, when he gave his heart to the Lord. Ian was raised in Christian family, where love of the Word and love of "praise and worship music" were a part of family life for him and his siblings. Raised in Dundas, ON, the Walker Family were an important "pillar family" at Dundas Baptist Church (both Ian's mother, Doreen and Bill Walker have passed in 2010 and 2012) as they served the church and its missionaries within the Christian community of Hamilton-Wentworth for many years.
Ian states that "the DNA of ministry" are in his genes as both his Walker grandparents were "preacher's kids" and the church was vital part of their lives. Ian's mother's family were originally Anglican (Church of England) however when they came to Canada in early 1915 from England...they enjoyed the fellowship of the Baptist church where three generations of the "Rashleigh" family now are involved.

Worth Quoting from W. Ian Walker
"When an art form is created, the question is how do you come to it, and not does it come to you. Beethoven's music is not going to come to you, you have to come to it. Or in reference to the art and style of Picasso and Shakespeare; when you go to it, you get the benefit of the art form." Wynton Marsalis
