Happy Birthday, Pastor

Happy Birthday, Pastor Campbell!Happy Birthday!

We typically think of birthdays as a time to give; however, when the Pastor’s birthday comes it is an appropriate time to reflect on God’s gracious gift to our church. Paul states that God, “gave…pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (Eph. 4.11-12) Specifically, the gift is that of the pastor-teacher, and these gifts are found in the same person.

Today we express appreciation our thankfulness to the Lord for Pastor Campbell and his leadership at Bethel Baptist Church. We thank you for the many, many hours you devote each week as you prepare to preach the Bible. We are indebted to you for the vision you cast for our church, families, marriages and our personal walk with God. We thank God for you, Pastor! Happy Birthday! 

After you vote for your favorite tie of Pastor Campbell’s, we encourage you to take a moment and write a comment wishing Pastor a Happy Birthday!
