Matt had recently given his heart to the the Lord and moved to San Antonio to accept a position with Lockheed Martin after leaving the Air Force.

Following their nuptials, they entered full time ministry as the Children’s Pastors at First Assembly in Peoria, Illinois. They later moved to First Assembly in Jerseyville, Illinois as the Children’s Pastors and Christian Education Directors.
In 2001, they accepted a position as the Youth/Children’s Pastors at Calvary Temple Assembly of God in San Antonio, TX for Rev. James Brothers. In 2004, Pastor Brothers retired and Matt and Stacey continued serving the new pastor, and Stacey’s father, Rev. Douglas Roberts, as the Children’s Pastors. They served in this capacity until 2008, when they accepted the position of Executive Pastor. They resigned this position in December 2010 to pursue the call to world missions.

Jordan & Shea Campbell - Family Life pastors
Jordan and Shea met in August 2016, at Crossroads Church in Oklahoma City where Shea was serving on staff as the Children’s Pastor. Jordan had served 6 years in the U.S. Military and deployed once to Afghanistan. A few months prior to meeting, Jordan had rededicated his life to Jesus, after coming through a rough time in his life.
Jordan and Shea dated three months before getting engaged, and were married on February 18th, 2017. A few months after being married God began to stir their hearts for the mission field. They truly believe God placed them in the perfect place. Shea’s experience as a Children’s Pastor and Jordan’s prior military service make them a great fit for ministry in our community. Their hearts are to partner with families to help them understand their purpose and identity in Christ, so they can lead their families in a Godly way.
