Rev. Delwyn and Lenita Campbell

Serving the Lord in Gary, Indiana



Rev. Delwyn Campbell serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a missionary in Gary, Ind. In this role, he leads the development of missionary outreach and supports the health and growth of the current Lutheran population in the area. He is assisting in the establishment of a Lutheran educational facility in Gary that will serve the entire Northwest Indiana region. Delwyn provides pastoral care through Word and Sacrament ministry to St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and to other area congregations as needed. His goal is to not only proclaim the Gospel to Gary residents, but also offer pastoral care to members of the community by sharing the Gospel with them and ministering to their needs.

Delwyn’s hometown is Gary, Ind. He received a bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University and a master’s degree in theology from Christ College at Concordia University, Irvine, Calif. Before being called to Gary, Delwyn worked in radio broadcasting, banking and education. He also served as the vacancy pastor at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Hemet, Calif. In his free time, he enjoys cooking and barbecuing. Delwyn’s wife, Lenita hails from Long Beach, Calif. She received an associate degree from Liberty University. Prior to moving to Gary, she worked in customer service and clerical support. Her hobbies include couponing, baby-wearing and American Sign Language. Delwyn and Lenita enjoy spending time with their three beautiful children - Delwyn II, Daniyah and Dinah. 


Pray for Delwyn and Lenita as they serve the city of Gary. Ask God to be with the entire Campbell family as they endeavor to bring Christ’s precious Gospel to this historic city. Pray that God will grant them success and that He pours out His Spirit of grace and supplication upon this community. Pray for the city of Gary, for her churches and their lay leaders. Ask God to be with the city’s community leaders, both political and socio-economic, and with the citizens of Gary. Pray for the hearts of people who will partner with the Campbell family in prayer and financial support so the mission in this city can go forward without fear of logistical failure. Let us give thanks that the Campbell family is serving God’s children in Gary.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of the joyful response and generosity of God’s people over the past fiscal year, not more than 10.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 13.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
