Meet the Team


Pastor Aaron Campbell

Aaron Campbell is a speaker and author, and the founder and lead pastor of Antioch Christian Fellowship. A graduate of The University of Pennsylvania, Aaron has been serving Philadelphia’s universities and drug-and-gang communities—and all people-groups in between —for some 20 years. Though a pastor at heart, Aaron’s evangelism traverses racial/ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic lines—lending to Antioch being one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse churches in the city. A proud Native-American, Aaron also does extensive work in remote native reservations and communities, Alaska in particular. For his ongoing work in Alaska, in 2014, Aaron was invited to share at The United Nations in NYC on indigenous marginalization and poverty. Aaron has hosted multiple large events in Philadelphia for Dr. Ravi Zacharias. He is the author of Eyes That Seen Plenty—a coming-of-age story chronicling his journey of juggling the inner-city life of drugs and crime, and the Ivy-League, while also exploring some seven different worldviews before finding the truth in Christ. Aaron has been featured on national television for Eyes That Seen Plenty, and the book has been adopted into the curriculum at two major universities. Aaron’s hobbies include hanging out with his wife and kids, gardening, reading, travel, fishing, and grilling meats on an open fire.


Pastor Sherman Adams

As a pure pragmatist, Sherman seems to have a fitting story for every situation. A lover of culture and rich fellowship, he has traveled the country with some 30 years of management in the retail and fashion industry, namely Macy’s and Lord & Taylor. As of late, he has managed a large, tri-state team at the second largest national satellite TV provider. He is the grandson of one of Philadelphia’s historically-noted preachers, Reverend W.H.R. Powell, personal friend to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and one who regularly shared pulpits with Tenth Presbyterian’s legendary, Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse. It was at his grandfather’s church, Shiloh Baptist Church (Philadelphia’s second oldest Black baptist church), where Sherman served as a deacon for over two decades. During his time in Atlanta, Sherman also served at First Baptist Church pastored by Dr. Charles Stanley. In summary, Sherman has spent the majority of his life watching effective ministries operate, while gleaning from many spiritual “giants in the faith.” Sherman’s hobbies include hanging out with his nephews, eating out, exploring technology, reading, and watching movies.
