Through Pulse, Intern Walker Link Got Serious About Jesus
For years, Walker Link numbed his pain in unhealthy ways. “My mental health was terrible. I was super underweight, super pale, and lacking nutrition,” he remembers.
Walker’s life fell apart even more during the pandemic. But after a friend shared the Gospel with him, Walker encountered Jesus for the first time. Though his life didn’t change immediately, intentionally spending time with Jesus and reading Scripture daily convicted his heart. “God was gracious and brought me back to repentance over and over,” Walker says.
Struggling to grow without a community supporting him, Walker heard about Pulse. He attended a Revival Nights event where Nick Hall shared the Gospel. “I just knew I had to get serious about Jesus,” Walker says.
He joined the first Pulse 100 cohort within a few weeks. In the year-long program, leaders challenged him to get serious about his own faith and taught him how to share it with others. “The coaches taught me what it means to be intimate with Jesus,” Walker says.
This spring, Walker joined the Preaching track of the Pulse internship. Though he dislikes public speaking, he wanted to be challenged in sharing his faith.
“We’re all evangelists,” Walker says. “Pulse helped me become an evangelist, but it also helped me be a true follower of Jesus. I ask myself what my gifts are and how I can serve my local church sacrificially. I’m learning not to live for myself but for the Kingdom. Pulse is a great place to learn how to do that.”
