Erin’s mission is simply this: To educate and equip people to know, embrace, and pass on truth. She is passionate about bringing the wonder and awe of God into people’s everyday lives, and believes strongly in the power of our stories and in the importance of sharing them in a way that brings glory to God.
Erin is a founding member of the Original Women’s Conference at Rockford First. Prior to that she served as a member of the Executive Staff of the Rockford Master’s Commission. Before moving into full-time ministry, she spent six years in the public school system working as a group therapist and curriculum developer. Erin has her degree in Sociology with a heavy minor in Psychology, and is also a licensed minister, and plans to begin her graduate studies this year.
Erin spent ten years in full-time ministry, and has been involved in youth work for over 25 years. She left her position as the Head of the Bible Department at Christian Life High School, and as part of the staff of Venue Student Ministries at Rockford First Assembly in 2013 when she and her husband, Aaron, adopted their son Jack. Since making that change, Erin has written several children’s books–Hark, No Chance Toastypants, and For Now We Are Here, as well as several devotionals.
With a love for adventure and a heart for people everywhere, Erin has travelled around the world (22 countries and counting). Recently, her focus has centralized to South East Asia and the fight against human trafficking. Erin, Aaron and Jack recently moved to the Kansas City Area to join the team of Hope Chapel, where Erin leads the women’s ministry, is involved with the youth, and works on all-church content creation.
Erin and her husband Aaron just celebrated 16 years of marriage, Jack is nine, and they have six pets – one cat, two dogs, two axolotls, and one blue-tongued skink! As a homeschool family, the Campbell’s spend as much time as possible looking for and studying the good, the true and the beautiful.
Dedicated to teaching God’s truth and raising up restored men and women to influence this culture, the following quote speaks to Erin’s passion for knowing and sharing truth:
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” Soren Kierkegaard
