Rev. Delwyn and Lenita Campbell and their children

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 national (domestic) 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.
