God placed it on Pastor Dave's heart many years ago to one day plant a church. The mission of the church would be to communicate the heart of The Father to a broken and lost world. Every aspect of the church and all ministry done would be surrendered and guided by the Holy Spirit. What seemed like a dream many years ago has now become a reality.
Pastor Dave grew up in the Vestal, NY. His desire is to simply connect people who do not know Christ into a real and life changing relationship with Him.
Pastor Dave graduated from Vestal High School. He also graduate from SUNY Cortland with a Bachelors of Science in Education and from Walden University with a Masters of Science in Education with a concentration in curriculum development, instruction, and assessment.
Pastor Dave knew he was called into ministry as a teenager, but the road of preparation has been an interesting one. After working as a Physical Education teacher in the Spencer - Van Etten School district, Pastor Dave took a part time position as an Outreach Pastor at City Church in Binghamton NY. He eventually began to serve full-time as both the Outreach Pastor of the Binghamton Campus and the Campus Pastor of the Norwich Campus.
God then directed him to Tracy Creek where he served as the Lead Pastor. Now God has opened to door to plant the church that God has always placed on Pastor Dave's heart. When Pastor Dave is not involved in ministry he enjoys spending time with family, writing, coaching, and working out.
David Campbell Sr. has been teaching the Bible over 30 years in various church settings. He enjoys teaching topics on faith, discipleship, prayer, eschatology (the study of end time events), Bible books and men and women of the Bible. In 1994 he began filling pulpits for different churches and this has continued for over 25 years.
During his years of ministry he has served in many different capacities; some of those ministries have been Educational Director, adult Sunday School teacher, church deacon, and for a number of years he was involved with Bible drama productions where he had the wonderful opportunity to fill the roles of Abraham, David, Simeon, Peter, Paul and the most blessed role of all was Christ. In September of 1996 David received his ministerial credentials through the Assemblies of God.
In October of 2017 David became a published author with his book “My Journey Through The Valley of the Shadow of Death.” David graduated from Vestal High School in 1971.
