Bruce and Deborah have been serving the Lord for over 30 years. While attending Harvest Time Assembly in Lancaster, Bruce was asked if he and his family would be willing to pastor at First Assembly in Camden for a few months, which at the time was struggling without a pastor. Guided by the Spirit, they began their new journey, and he accepted his call to become the full-time pastor in November 2001. Every new person that has walked through the doors of First Assembly has been met with love and care. Pastor Bruce has a passion for the Lost and a heart to see God's people grow to maturity, and they both strive to always be available to anyone in the community that is in need. They are both proud to be a part of the people that make up First Assembly and are excited about the future.
