The Lord has blessed Pastor Campbell in his thirty-seven years of preaching the gospel and training others to serve the Lord. His life verse is, “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” – Philippians 1:20-21.
