The Rev. Bruce Campbell - Senior Pastor


Pastor Bruce grew up in a small farming community near San Diego, where he met and married his high school sweetheart, Margie. They have four boys and have lived in Hawaii since 1979.

Prior to moving to Hawaii, he graduated from Biola University in 1976 and Talbot Seminary in 1979. He was a youth pastor in Los Angeles for three years, before pastoring the First Evangelical Free Church on Honolulu for eleven years. At the end of that time, God led Bruce and his family to Kona so they could plant this church in 1990.

Bruce's personal ministry values come from Acts Chapter 4, where the apostles were "devoting themselves to prayer and the ministry of the word." He is committed to prayer, for both himself and the church. His preaching style is expository, using a chapter by chapter journey through Bible books. His ministry goal is to make the Bible practical for everyday living.

In his leisure time, he enjoys golf, landscaping, kayaking with Margie, and rooting for LA sports teams.

Bruce can be reached via e-mail or at the church office Tuesday through Friday. For appointments call 326-9580.
