While serving in this post Rev. Campbell brought the church into financial stability and established many ministries. However, his greatest accomplishment as pastor was the building of a new $1.2 million worship facility that was dedicated on May 2, 2010 and revolutionized the worship experience for church-goers living near the Phillips Highway Corridor.
