Green Acres Baptist Church, Tyler

PATH Week is an annual celebration of PATH’s mission and work in the East Texas community. Each year we select a keynote speaker whose message or personal experience reflects our core values of hope, empowerment and respect. The Gertrude Windsor Award for outstanding service to the community is also presented during the luncheon.


Bob Goff

Bob Goff is the New York Times bestselling author of Love Does and the founder Love Does (formerly Restore International), a nonprofit human rights organization operating in Uganda, India, Nepal, Iraq, and Somalia. Because of Bob’s vision and the work of Love Does, he serves as the honorary consul for the Republic of Uganda to the United States. He is a sought-after speaker, inspiring current and future influencers to get to the “do” part of life. Choosing to live audaciously, he connects to audiences in a powerfully inspirational, yet down-to-earth manner. He is also a professor at Pepperdine Law School and Point Loma Nazarene University, and most importantly, he is the husband of sweet Maria Goff.


Rick and Diana Walla

During this year’s PATH Week Celebration Luncheon, Rick and Diana Walla will be honored with the 2018 Gertrude Windsor Award. Rick and Diana have been deeply involved with numerous organizations including PATH, Habitat for Humanity, Hiway 80 Rescue Mission, and Glenwood Church of Christ. Their spirit of giving back and making a difference extends to their sons Jacob, Jared and Jordan who have also volunteered with PATH and Habitat for Humanity. We are inspired by their personal commitment to making Tyler more vibrant for all.
