In 2014, Gavin Walton began his second year as a student at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (PTS), and, in the fall of the same year, began his nine-month placement for his field education at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Upper St. Clair. His favorite class at PTS so far has been “Rethinking Church” with Dr. Edwin van Driel.
Gavin grew up in the Stanton Heights section of Pittsburgh. He was raised in the Roman Catholic Church; for a time, he was a member of the Pentecostal Church. In June 2014, he married Kelly in a wedding ceremony at Shadyside Presbyterian Church. Elder Art Gilkes is Gavin’s liaison on the Session of Shadyside Presbyterian Church.
