Pastor Kerby Campbell was born and raised in Statesville, North Carolina. He was saved at the age of 8 during chapel at his Christian School. He went to college, in Virginia, where he met his wife, Kelli. Thy have been married for 34 years. They have 2 sons, Isaac and Jack.
God called him to preach while serving faithfully, in Mocksville, North Carolina. God gave him a desire to start Northwest Baptist Church, in Marysville, Washington, in 1996. God blessed the ministry there and thousands came to know Christ as their Saviour.
After 15 wonderful years, God allowed a difficult trial to come into the Campbell's life and he had to resign his ministry in Washington. During a routine knee surgery, the doctor injured his nervous system and caused a disease called Arachnoiditis, which is a lifetime of excruciating, incurable pain with no hope. But our God is a God of miracles and healed him completely after 8 long years.
After resigning, Pastor Campbell started a ministry called Treasured Trials to give hope and help to those who have had their lives shattered. He traveled the country for 8 years to give hope to the broken and hurting. He understands what it is like to hurt and lose everything...all of your dreams and desires. Trials hurt, whether they are physical, financial, relational or emotional.
After a miraculous healing, God called them to Park Meadows Baptist Church to reach the lost, help the hurting and meet the spiritual needs of those looking for Biblical help.
Pastor Campbell is excited to be here at Park Meadows Baptist Church and looks forward to seeing what God will do here in Lincoln, Illinois and the surrounding communities.
