Founding leader and Pastor, Rev. Keith L. Campbell birthed Restoration Christian Ministries, COGIC (RCM) in June 2010. What started as a bible study in his home on Long Island, which then moved to the home of one of the then members (Deacon Lenny & Carolee Lee) in the Bronx, had blossomed into a full-fledged holistic ministry under the tutelage of the Third Jurisdiction Church of God in Christ with then presiding Bishop Frank O. White. RCM brings with it a wealth of spiritual maturity and ministry.
Pastor Campbell has been in ministry for over 25 years, a licensed minister of the gospel for 16 years. He has contributed to the kingdom and several local churches, birthing diversified ministries. RCM is founded on prayer and is noted for the Spirit of Excellence in which the Lord’s work is done. It is by divine providence that this ministry was birthed out of a bible study because Pastor Campbell, though an excellent Preacher, has an exceptional anointing for Teaching. It is with passion that he teaches God’s word, with love for people that gives him the heart of a Pastor and with great dedication he bears the responsibility of raising disciples. RCM’s first location and only location for 7 years was at 3378 Boston Road, Bronx. In the summer of 2012, RCM took a leap of faith and acquired the space next door, doubling their facility size and expenses, even without having a full church at their former location. As a result of their obedience, the church attendance tripled. Lives have truly been changed and the mission of the church is fully active.
Pastor Campbell often says, “Store front church is not a location, but a mentality. We must be able to minister to the entire family simultaneously in order to fulfill the vision God has given me.” This expansion included space for children’s church, thereby meeting the needs of the families. “We must bring them by the family” is our pastor’s motto. This is a church that has big vision and a pastor with a heart for the people.
The mission of RCM is driven by four principles; Salvation, Deliverance, Healing and Restoration.
Restoration Christian Ministries, “God’s House of Restoration,” continues to do great things by the will and purpose of God. At the beginning of 2017 our Pastor declared over the house that before the end of the year we will be leaving 3378 Boston Road, We are grateful to say that God brought that Word to fruition and on May 28th, 2017 once again RCM has expanded its borders, occupying their new facilities at 822 E 233rd Street, Bronx NY, a facility with room for even more ministry to take place and for more lives to be transformed. The work is not yet complete. There is still more work to be done.
“So we built the wall, and the entire wall was joined together up to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.” Nehemiah 4:6
Let us continue to pray for the unity of this church and the heart of its people, that they all have the same mind to work and build the kingdom of God here for the Lord.
