Our Story.

Restored Hope Ministries was founded by Scott and Michelle Campbell in August of 2015.   However, the story began many years ago as young high school sweethearts. They have been married for nearly 25 years and have two sons, Brandon and Dawson.

About Us

It seemed as though there was a defining moment when things begin to shift.  As though life took a turn.  It was one of those memorable conversations that you recall many years later.   Scott can remember vividly asking Michelle,  “When will it be our turn?” This meaning…when will WE face tragedy, hardship and struggles?  While life was not easy, it had not thrown the curve balls others had seemed to face.    The Campbell family experienced a life changing event on May 31, 2007 (read more here).  While Michelle was waiting at home with dinner on the table, Scott, Brandon and Dawson were in a car accident less than one mile from their home.   With divine wisdom and quick thinking, Scott was able to turn the direction of the vehicle to avoid a head on collision.  Amazingly, the boys would walk away with only a few scratches and bruises.  Scott, however, would suffer severe injuries that would change the direction of their lives forever.  He would ultimately face open heart surgery in 2011 and it would end in retirement from the fire service at the age of 38.   Shortly after retirement seeking purpose and pursing his Call to ministry, Scott enrolled in Fruitland Bible College and Liberty University Online.

The Campbell’s have learned that healing can come with finding purpose in your pain.  Despite the ongoing challenges and disappointments that life can bring there is hope found in Jesus Christ.   RHM was formed with a heart to reach the broken.  Our heart is work alongside the church reaching the broken.

About Michelle

Just as most women, Michelle wears many hats…but is a wife and mom first.  As the wife of a retired first responder, she understands the stresses, odd shifts, missed anniversaries and the ongoing mental stresses of playing “mom and dad”.   She has been married to her high school sweetheart for nearly 25 years and they have two sons, Brandon and Dawson.   She is an insurance professional with a degree in business administration.

Despite a full plate with family and career, ministry remains a priority.   In 2010 she launched the ministry Women by Design.   Women by Design is a non-profit ministry that host annual conferences and retreats for women.  She is also the co-founder of Restored Hope Ministries, Inc.  She is available to speak at your next event!

She loves high heel shoes, decorating, gardening, reading, chocolate, coffee with peppermint mocha and spending time with her Labrador Retriever.

What We Believe

The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error. Therefore, all Scripture is God’s infallible Word to man.

God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.  He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

God

There is one and only one living and true God. One God in three persons-Father, Son and The Holy Spirit

God the Son

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Jesus Christ was born a of a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven.

Salvation

Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in JESUS Christ alone

We Care

Everyone struggles. If you are facing a change in life or a personal struggle, you may feel like you are alone and no one understands.  Sometimes we feel like we don’t deserve help or are so insignificant that God would never help us.   Did you know that a bird cannot fall from its nest without God knowing it?

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. Matthew 10:29

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19

You can have a life of peace. You can live life with purpose without “just getting by”. We want to show you how.
