Pastor Brett Campbell Sr.

Senior Pastor

Brett Campbell Sr. began his spiritual journey in 1974 while watching a Billy Graham program on television. As Dr. Graham gave the gospel of Jesus Christ, He was convicted as a sinner, repented, and invited Jesus as his Savior into his heart (Rom.10:9-10, John 3:16). He met and married his wife Debbie in 1986 (This is their 35th year of marriage). The Lord has blessed their union with three children and three grandchildren: Brett Jr. (wife, Whitney and children: Kyleigh and Ayden), Brittany (daughter, Ariyah), and Erynn. Pastor Campbell considers his wife, Debbie, his greatest ministry as he learns how to love and lead her.

In 2006, Pastor Campbell was called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was mentored by his Pastor, Dr. Aaron E. Lavender. Pastor Campbell attended and then graduated from Carver Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary completing both A.A. and B.A. degrees in Biblical Studies. He continued his education at Master’s International University of Divinity completing a Master of Ministry degree. He was blessed to serve on the pastoral staff of Dr. Lavender at the Grace Baptist Church of Greater Kansas City.

During that time, Pastor Campbell has officiated weddings, funerals, and some counseling. He served as Minister of Fellowship, New Members Class Instructor, and facilitator of the Couples Ministry. 

He teaches the Apples of Gold courses at the Carver Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary. He and his wife Debbie along with a few other members of GBC host a Good News Club at Holliday Montessori, one of their neighborhood schools.  One of the highlights of his ministry is being able to join the evangelism team as they minister at the City Union Mission.

On November 8, 2020, Pastor Campbell was unanimously voted in as the senior pastor of the Grace Baptist Church of Greater Kansas City.
