Arland Wallace has been a goal-setter from a young age. He imagined a life in a medical field while in elementary school and spent ten years as an x-ray tech. His next 35 years were spent in the print industry and while in that role he set a goal - cardio fitness. His 20 minutes a day on the treadmill turned into 5Ks, 10Ks and a 24-hour run!
While waiting for runners one day, he found himself at a grand piano - in awe! So of course, he set a new goal to learn to play the piano. As only an over-achiever can do, he took those learning skills and learned the violin as well. These were all set aside, however, to take up the life he may have been running from but always in his mind - clergy. Arland graduated from the Bishop Kemper School of Ministry and serves at St. John's Episcopal Church in Wichita, KS.
Arland has a heart for helping the poor and marginalized. Along with his normal duties, he's well-known for a couple of projects in the community - Sandwich Saturday and Laundry of Love. Sandwich Saturday provide sack lunches to the poor, and Laundry of Love gives the homeless and others an opportunity to clean their clothes once a month for free. Deacon Wallace's work aligns with Breakthrough as a positive resource in the community for the many clients we share.
