In 1967, Bruce was an inner city high school teen struggling with the attractive, yet oftentimes destructive forces of peer pressure and urban strife. Just before his confusion and frustration turned into giving up on life, Rev. Dr. Michael E. Haynes, senior pastor of the historic Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury intervened and introduced Bruce to Jesus Christ. This powerfully fresh hope and spiritual walk not only strengthened his faith but also opened the door to tremendous opportunities.
Bruce went on the receive his Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Berkshire Christian College in Lenox, MA as well as his Master of Religious Education degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Wenham, MA. He also holds an Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Bruce is an ordained American Baptist Minister, as well as the President and Founder of his own para-church ministry, Bruce Wall Ministries, Inc. and the Senior Pastor of the Global Ministries Christian Church. After 25 years as the First Assistant Clerk-Magistrate of the Boston Juvenile Court, he retired to devote his full time to ministry. A life-long resident of the City of Boston, Bruce, his wife Karin and their three children live in the Hyde Park section of Boston.
As a nationally recognized former youth minister at one of Boston’s oldest African American Churches; a respected and experienced juvenile and family court professional; and now senior pastor, evangelist and community activist, Bruce is spiritually and uniquely qualified to address both the problems of youth and families in America today as well as the issues of crime and disorder abatement through practical self-empowerment strategies.
In 1993, after five years of pastoring a youth outreach ministry at the Chez Vous Roller Skating Rink in Dorchester, MA, Pastor Bruce Wall was called to be the Co-Pastor of the multi-racial and culturally diverse Global Ministries Christian Church. In 1999, Pastor Wall became the senior Pastor of the church. Since that time he has transformed the church mission, which has led to a change in the church name and a new organizational structure, as well as a major building renovation. He has also transitioned the church to a new global vision. Today, worship services are televised on a local neighborhood cable network.
Bruce frequently appears as a conference speaker calling young people and their families to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior and the Lord of their lives. Bruce, an ordained American Baptist Church minister, presents a challenging message as well as a spiritual inspiration that teaches the Word of God in a practical down-to-earth style.
For twenty-five years, Bruce served with distinction as the first Assistant Clerk-Magistrate of the Boston Juvenile Court. In 1998, he retired from his post to devote full-time to his family, developing street ministry, and burgeoning church. While in the court, he daily presided over magistrate hearings and made pivotal decisions regarding the lives of young people and their families in greater Boston. He also has earned both a local and national reputation for administering justice with exceptional integrity in a consistently discerning and fair-minded manner.
Newsweek Magazine cited Bruce as an unsung hero for his street-level, city-wide fight against illegal drugs through the nationally acclaimed Drop-A-Dime Report Crime Program. David Nyhum of the Boston Globe called him, “A calming influence in the City of Boston.” He also founded the “Yes, We Can Movement”, a voter education and registration drive. Through these and other ministry programs, he seeks to encourage community empowerment and commitment to help the poor and disenfranchised, and to join the struggle against crime and disorder.
