As the Novel Coronavirus spreads throughout the U.S. and the globe, we're operating in a new normal. Church services are canceled and pastors and churches must find a new way to reach people. Ed Stetzer talks with Pastors Aaron Campbell and John K. Jenkins about the work they're doing to care for those in their church and reach new people in need.
Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr. has been preaching since he was licensed as a minister in 1973 at 15 years old. In 1987, he became the senior pastor at Union Bethel Church in King George, Va. He went on to become the senior pastor at First Baptist Church of Glenarden. John is also the board chairman for Project Bridges and The Skinner Institute. He has traveled across the world preaching and teaching about the love of Jesus Christ. He and his wife are the proud parents of six children and five grandchildren.
Aaron Campbell is founder and lead pastor of Antioch Christian Fellowship in the heart of Philadelphia. At Antioch, we serve the city’s elite executives down to the worst gang-and-drug-torn neighborhoods. Antioch also currently operates the largest outreach to at-risk teens in the entire city (in a city that had more incarcerated teens than anywhere in the nation), drawing some 300 “unchurched” teens to the church from the worst drug corners, high schools, and sections of the city. Aaron is also one of the lead police chaplains in the city over some 6,300 police officers and he serves them regularly.
Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America. Ed and his wife, Donna, have been married more than 25 years and have three daughters.
