Marlene Allen Wrote – This is Bishop Willie James Campbell my Uncle/Dad. I grew up at St. James COGIC. This man taught me how to look and live in the face of adversity. This man taught me how to seek God and ask anything in his name. This man taught me that faith moves in one direction, towards its goal. This man taught me the principles of giving tithes and offerings. This man taught me how to love and respect the people of God. This man taught me that perfect love casts out fear.
This man taught me how to sing with the spirit and the understanding also. This man taught me that salvation is a way of life. This man taught me it’s gonna get better and I’m coming outta here. This man taught me how to cast out demons by the power of the Holy Ghost and command the enemy to leave. This man taught me leadership and how to appreciate the blessing of family.
This man taught me the art of dress, fine dining and exquisite travel. I could go on and on as tears flood my eyes but I’ll stop here. I’m glad I got a chance to hug your neck and tell you how much I love you in March 2020.
He was my blood uncle, my mother’s baby brother (her pride and joy). Now, Uncle Dub, you will be reunited with your big sister Lorraine and your parents in paradise. God’s got us from here. Well done my amazing preaching uncle/daddy!! Take your rest. Till we meet again.
Dr Matthew L Stevenson Wrote – My deepest thoughts and prayers go out this morning to Dr Lori and The entire St James COGIC family. Bishop Willie James Campbell will be remembered as one of the greatest preachers of all times!! I’ve danced on the hardwood floors of State Temple many Sunday nights. Chicago has lost a lot of giants over the last 10 years and I’m not sure what we’re going to do, but I do know we have huge shoes to fill! Rest Bishop!.
Terrica Schelette Simpson-Smith Wrote – JESUS! I am numb right now this man was a preachers preacher and he could preach you pray you into a frenzy. I remember how I and Kent AnointedtoSing Winters would break our necks to get to Saint James every Sunday night just to go hear Bishop Willie James Campbell preach us happy, I remember one service it was a prayer service and Pastor Campbell prayed heaven down all I could remember after I got off the floor was I noticed I was underneath the pew the anointing in that place was so heavy that everybody was slain in the HOLY GHOST!.
There will never be another Bishop Willie JAMES CAMPBELL it’s over now and everything is gonna be alright TAKE YOUR WINGS SIR we are gonna miss you so much so many memories from Saint James omg!.
