Our Healing Story

"That the trial of your faith, being much more preacious than gold that perisheth, though it might be tried by fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:"
- 1 Peter 1:7

Pastor Kerby Campbell

Pastor Kerby Campbell was born and raised in Statesville, North Carolina. He was saved at eight years old during chapel at his Christian School. He attended a Christian College in Virginia, where he met his wife, Kelli. They have been married for 38 years and have two sons, Isaac and Jack. Isaac married Bethany. They have two wonderfully perfect grandchildren, Levi and Anna.


God called him to preach and gave him the desire to start Northwest Baptist Church, in Marysville, Washington, in 1996. God blessed the ministry there. Thousands came to know Christ as their Saviour.


On February 17, 2010, Pastor Campbell went in for routine knee surgery for a torn meniscus, not knowing that when he came out of surgery, his life would be forever changed.


After a failed spinal epidural, he would be diagnosed with a medical condition called arachnoiditis. Arachnoiditis is a lifetime of severe pain every day with NO CURE.


In 2011, Pastor Campbell resigned Northwest Baptist Church and started Treasured Trials Ministries to help other people like them who had had their lives shattered by life-changing trials.The Campbell’s traveled to speak at churches and conferences across the US for almost eight years giving hope and help to the hurting.  


In 2013, due to the stress and trauma of the condition, he suffered a heart attack. God used the heart attack in their lives in ways they never dreamed.


God miraculously and completely healed Pastor Campbell in 2017, even though many doctors said there was no hope of a cure. God gave Pastor Campbell his dream back, to pastor again. He is serving the Lord, in Lincoln, Illinois, at Park Meadows Baptist Church.

Kelli Campbell

Kelli Campbell did not attend church growing up. During her senior year in high school, her dad made one decision that changed her life forever. He made her go to a Christian college in Virginia. The first week she was there, she heard the Gospel for the first time and accepted Christ as her Saviour.


She met her future husband, Kerby, on a blind date. They were married a year later. They have been married for 38 years. They have two sons, Isaac and Jack. Isaac married Bethany. They have two wonderfully perfect grandchildren, Levi and Anna.


When the trials began in 2010, Kelli refused to believe that her husband had no hope. She believed that God would heal her husband even though no doctor had given them any hope of recovery.


She traveled and spoke with her husband all over the country, trying to encourage others never to give up hope, even when it does not make sense. God can still do miracles.


There were many years of broken dreams, fears, and heartaches. Kelli used those years to pray, learn and grow. She went to nutrition school in hopes of helping her husband and her family. She also studied and became a certified Biblical Counselor in hopes of helping others when they felt like they had no hope.


Kelli happily serves with her husband and family at Park Meadows Baptist Church in Lincoln, Illinois.
