Seeing the church from a global perspective is important to Walter. In his classes he brings this passion to see God at work throughout the world. Before coming to AMBS in 1990, Walter served with Mennonite Central Committee in Europe for 12 years. He travels regularly to eastern Europe and Russia as a consultant and to teach. A member of the Global Mennonite History Project Committee since its beginning, he writes about Mennonite history and mission and participates in ecumenical committees in the areas of theology, history, and missiology. As administrator for a Bible Commentary series (31 volumes) translated into Russian (1978–1993), then coordinator of an oral history project for Slavic evangelicals, he is active in encouraging the emergence of new historians and missiologists from the region of the former Soviet Union.
