About Answer Ministries International Inc.
 

It began in the late 1970’s in college as Jesus is the Answer Ministries while Pastor Walters was a theology student. It was shortened to Answer Ministries at the suggestion of an art professor, Elfred Lee, who suggested that the logo’s graphic communicate the Christ-centered nature of the ministry. In 1999, while pastoring in Brooklyn, the ministry applied for its federal ID number and for many years afterward conducted tent crusades, workshops, revivals, radio broadcasts, started new praise and worship centers, led prophetic presbyteries and much, much more under the auspices of AMI Inc.

Recently, having been freed of the time consuming and limiting nature of denominational itinerant pastoral affiliation, Pastor Walters has been able to devote his full attention to developing and building the proper foundation for the vision of AMI Inc. given so many years ago. Allow me to introduce you to Answer Ministries International Inc.
