We welcome Rev. Mike and Melissa Campbell to Grace Church as our new Family Life Pastor!
The Pastor of Family Ministries is the advocate for the generations of the church and will oversee the structures and atmosphere of the church to ensure that the family of God is working together to make Christ-like disciples of the next generation. First, he is an advocate for the young (children, youth, and early adults) because these are the people who are least knowledgeable and least experienced in the Christian life. Next, he is an advocate for the parent(s) of these young people because they are in the greatest position to influence the young. Finally, he is concerned for mature adults because they have an important role in the discipleship and mentoring of parents and young people, alike.
The Pastor of Family Ministries will oversee the discipleship systems from cradle to college and to their parents. He will work closely with adult discipleship leaders to ensure that parents are prepared to lead their children and that young people have spiritual mentors when their parent cannot be the model.
Pastor Mike brings a considerable amount of experience in disciple-making and a passion for relational ministry! Melissa teaches high school math and they are the parents of three adult boys. Please make it a point to welcome the Campbells to the Grace Church family!
