“Zion” was God’s dwelling place in Jerusalem (Ps. 9:11). A “movement” is an active, mighty agitation of resistance, focused on a particular goal. By definition, ZM is an active assembly of saved individuals in which God dwells, who through music, are focused on setting up resistance to the adversary of this world, for Christ’s sake. Inspired by God; led by the Holy Spirit; sustained through prayer, fasting, and faith; and founded by Min. Dexter D. Walker; Zion Movement was established in May of 2003, in the basement of Walker’s grandparents’ home. Sacredly devoted to God for divine purpose, ZM’s mission includes defying “the norm” and stepping outside of the box of ministry.
