Jesse Campbell

Kids’ Pastor
Biography: I’ve felt called to ministry since the 8th grade when I was asked to play on my youth group’s worship team. Since then, I’ve done my best to follow God’s leading in my life. I’ve been a part of music, discipleship, preaching, outreach, and now children’s ministry. I’ve loved every second of it! It’s a blessing to be used by God to engage with people and partner with Him as He changes the lives of the people around me with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit
I have been married to a wonderful wife, Rebecca, for 5 years and we have two boys named Oliver and Sam. We moved to Manhattan in 2015 and joined the MCN leadership team in 2017.
What is Your Church Role? I am first and foremost our Kids’ Pastor, so I spend a lot of time with kids and their families. My main goals are to ensure that they feel noticed and loved by me and, hopefully, that they learn that Jesus cares for them even more! In addition to that, I help with music, tech, and anything else that Pastor Steve needs support on.
Hobbies? Playing guitar, Frisbee Golf, Video Games, Reading, and Going on Adventures with My Sons.
How Do You Take Your Coffee? My favorite drink of all time is a Cortado! When I’m at home, I prefer a french press with a bit of cream.
Favorite Authors? Brandon Sanderson, C.S. Lewis, Bob Goff, Carey Nieuwhof, Francis Chan, J.R.R. Tolkien. Basically, high fantasy and theology.
Favorite Bible Verse? Philippians 1:6 – God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns. (NIrV)
