I'm a broken beaker full of pastor, poet, and preacher. What comes through the cracks is all grace
I am a pastor, poet, and preacher. I am focused on inspiring the heart of every person to recognize the ridiculous love of God. I hope those who are beaten down and fed up with their own failure find some encouragement here.
As a kid my two favorite toys were a nerf football and a used word processor. I have always loved the creative and critical process of the written word. I have seen increased opportunity to put my love to use as my book Beneath Broken Machines releases.
Teaching and writing have always been my passions. I am increasingly interested in challenging and equipping people to influence culture with creativity, knowledge, and wisdom.
If you want to geek out with me, ask me about: artisan coffee, Saturday Night Live, blues music, college football, Chicago-style pizza or hiphop.
If there are projects you are embarking on with need of a writer, let’s conspire together. Perhaps I can partner with you to create something great.
You can email me or follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

I wish i could write these words in braille so someone could feel what i'm saying
In nearly a decade of professional ministry, I have booked several speakers and performers for events. I quickly learned the weight of responsibility and trust you have to muster as an event planner when it comes to choosing a speaker and performer. A speaker can elevate or wreck an event in a matter of moments.
Thank you for considering me as a possible speaker for you. It means a lot more to me than you realize.
A BIT ABOUT ME
I have been speaking and performing for more than 15 years. I have spoken all over the country at state conventions, college chapels, camps, retreats, conferences, concerts, and churches. I have also performed comedy and spoken word poetry for many of the same venues. I have appeared on radio programs and various web-based interviews. I have also emcee’d large conferences and conventions.
WHAT PEOPLE MOST ASK ME TO SPEAK ABOUT
Of course I'd love to talk about my book, but I prefer to meet the needs you have for your event. Some of the most common topics are: recovery from distorted images of God, faith and your culture, faith in and through pain and hurt, faith and creativity, general topics such as grace, gospel, and faith.
I love to go and speak to others with urgency to communicate the outrageous love of God to those who have not or cannot believe it.
I would love to chat with you about anything YOU might need.
SO WHAT NOW

“PC is a man with an aptitude for looking head-on at the ways the church has distorted and destructively misapplied the essential message of Christ–he is also someone with a zeal to be a humble, repentant voice for reconciliation with a hurting world.”
-Stuart Erny, Director of Campus Ministries, Anderson University
“Sometimes I am with other Christians and get motivated, simply out of guilt. This motivates me for about 1 day. With other believers, I hear their honest struggle, but without hope. In my conversations with PC, I hear raw authenticity, where there are no wrong questions and all are allowed. I also hear a heart that looks beyond himself to One who loves him where he is at and woos him, without shame, to a better place.”
– Todd Davis, Counselor and Professor
Traveling the country speaking for a couple decades, I have seen our propensity to build machines out of our faith. We like to put in the right things in hopes it will churn out the right product. We become proud of the manufactured machines of faith we have built. The trouble with machines is they break down. I have sat with a lot of Christians whose machines have broken down, and they have no idea what to do. They have missed the heart of the gospel, which is the heart of Jesus that is to be engaged, encountered, and entangled.
This book is for the ones whose lives are broken and bedraggled.
It is for the ones who are smart enough to know how foolish they are, the ones who have tried and been found lacking.
This book is for the ones who need God's love to be closer and more real.
I am convinced God has given me words to write, and He has asked me to "Go! Tell people My love is for them! Tell them My heart still beats for them beneath all their broken machines."
I really want to see this book go to as many people as possible, especially to those who cannot or have not believed the love affair of the gospel.
Beneath Broken Machines is set to release in Fall 2016. Stay informed about the process by subscribing to my email newsletter.
what people are saying about Beneath Broken Machines:
"As someone who has left the church, this book spoke to me. I'm not talking about an awakening with pomp and circumstance, but something more simple, beautiful, and powerful. PC has always been a guiding force in my life, and this incredibly powerful book is no different."
- Kyle Lacy, 3x Author and National Speaker
"Beneath Broken Machines is a cup of cold water to a dry, parched, and weary soul. In ministry, it's easy to portray that I ONCE was lost...but now I've got it all together. PC writes this book with humility and openness, which gives permission to confess that your machine is broken as well."
- Travis Osborne, Pastor at Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, CA
"PC is not 'politically correct' with his new book, Beneath Broken Machines. Instead he speaks with a sense of honesty and humility about our brokenness. His book brings refreshment resulting from our openness to call sin, 'sin.' He challenges us to confess or admit the nature of our wrongs. This is not what the world would have us do! This is a good book from a humble man. Read it!"
-Dr. Patrick Blewett, Dean of A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary
"When the current culture seems to be distancing itself as fast as it can from the organized church, PC offers a theologically sound and logically witty paradigm that paints a picture of grace that is untainted by works and legalism. PC's picture offers a road back to the positive heritage that the church can offer. Beneath Broken Machines separates what we DO from who we ARE and invites a generation that is fleeing the church back to community and fellowship...and ultimately, back to the great love of their Papa."
- Lisa Pay, Professor of Social Work, Anderson University
"I cannot tell you how excited I am for this book from my good friend PC Walker. He would kill me for saying this, but I honestly believe this is The Ragamuffin Gospel of the next generation."
-David Leo Schultz, Writer and Director of the films Ragamuffin and Brennan
