Our Senior Pastor

Reverend Dr. William Campbell, Jr. (Pastor C) serves as the senior pastor of Union Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Brandywine & Temple Hills, Maryland. He is the founder of a global outreach ministry, Flaming Fire Ministries. He is the author of three books, three teaching manuals and a sermon contributor in the Athens & Oxford Sermons compiled by Dr. Joel C. Gregory.

Pastor C brings a unique and diverse amount of experiences to the ministry. Keeping teaching as a focal point in the ministry and the church’s bible – Walking in the Word – he has experienced record attendance both in-person and live streaming. Pastor C has led numerous mission trips regionally and globally to places such as New Orleans, Louisiana, and countries such as Jamaica, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Zambia and Kenya. In Nakuru, Kenya, he helped to plant the first A.M.E. Church, Bethel – which has now spawned into fifteen churches in that country.

Pastor C is married to Detra Kelly Campbell, an architect, project manager and designer. Following the calling of God, together they share a unique passion for building up the Kingdom of God wherever they are sent.
