GETTING TO KNOW RCC! Charlotte Campbell SPEAKS TO US!

Your Name: Charlotte Campbell 

Why are you at Roosevelt: I had been church-hopping for awhile and felt discouraged about the process when a friend suggested Roosevelt. The first time I visited I knew I wanted to make it my home.  

How long have you been here? Going on 5 years

How long have you been a Christian? I grew up in a Christian home and was saved when I was 6.  And then again when I was 7, and probably two more times when I was 10, because I think that’s probably how it goes when you’re a kid.  Growing as a Christian has definitely been a process.  Finding a high school discipleship group with an amazing mentor and becoming involved with InterVarsity at the U of A were aspects that very much shaped my maturity.  And, alas, the growth  continues!

Tell us something interesting we should know about your life as a Christian: I don't love to work, but I do love to travel.  I met my match when I became involved with medical missions over five years ago.  Since then, I’ve been able to work only part of the year, and spend the summers traveling to India, Ethiopia, and Zimbabwe to run the pharmacy department for medical outreaches as a volunteer with Jewish Voice Ministries.  I feel lucky to get to use my skills as a pharmacist to serve in other parts of the world.  It’s truly fulfilling to be part of another culture and see God’s glory at work.  

Where are you from: I am an Arizona native.  I grew up in Tempe, went to the University of Arizona, spent a year in Prescott, and eventually made it to central Phoenix.  If I’m not in Arizona, I’m usually very far from it on the other side of the world.  Stay close or stray far.  

What's your job: I’m a pharmacist.  

What are your hobbies: Globe-trekking, bike rides, basking and iced mochas, podcasts, volunteering with refugees!
