M. Douglas Campbell
Doug is a native of Detroit who left to study Art History at Kenyon College in Ohio. While there, he began to truly explore his own faith and beliefs. This began a journey that would eventually lead him to love and serve Jesus Christ, a decision that would change his life forever. It was while he was working as a development officer in Ohio that he first started feeling called to ministry. Following the call, Doug enrolled at Princeton Theological Seminary.
As part of his seminary formation, Doug spent a year in Scotland as a student minister. The church he was serving appreciated him so much that they invited him to remain as a full-time pastor for one year. He and his wife Emily, who is also a pastor, moved to Scotland where what was initially one year quickly became ten. During that time, Doug and Emily welcomed their two girls into their family. Doug also became the development officer for the Scottish Bible Society, an organization that works so that all people around the world have access to affordable Bibles in their own language. Eventually he was appointed their Chief Executive, a position he served for over seven years.
Doug and his family returned to the states where he has served as a consultant to non-profits and as an interim pastor in various churches across Metro Detroit. Since coming to Hope, he has shared how impressed he is with the staff and volunteers and how their ministry in the name of Christ offers real hope to everyone in need. He is looking forward to building relationships with all the members of Hope’s community. Whether he is in the lobby, one of the clinics, or in his own office, he is always excited to meet new people.
