Interim Director of Programs and Communications
Rev. Alfonso Campbell III experienced his first taste of ministry while studying at Howard University where he assumed a very active role in aiding young adults in developing and strengthening their relationship with Christ. His time at Howard provided him with the courage to answer his call and to also embrace his calling. Understanding that the assignment for his life was to present an ancient Gospel as a still very relevant Gospel.
Born and raised in the Washington D.C metropolitan area, Rev. Campbell was grounded in African American institutions. In 2010, he graduated from Howard University with his Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology. His call to further his work in ministry led him to The Samuel Dewitt Proctor School of Theology At Virginia Union where he received his Master of Divinity in 2014. Minister Campbell is a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated.
His vision to impart black culture and history are not only conveyed through his ministry but also in his service to the community. He is a firm believer that servant-leadership is more than a civic duty—it is a God ordained command.
In pursuit of God’s work, Rev. Campbell also seeks to bridge the gap of the Civil Rights generation and the Hip Hop generation. Furthermore, he has an unwavering commitment to create spaces that are inclusive for all voices, which he believes is the true definition of church.
