Our History

The doors of Living Word Ministries opened for the first time Easter Sunday, April 2001, under the pastorate of Elder James E. Camm. At that time, the membership of fourteen included the pastor, his wife and three children, four members of his immediate family, and the support of ten other family friends and members from his childhood community. Since its inception, Living Word Ministries has seen tremendous growth both in membership and in its ministry focus. Church membership has grown from the original number of fourteen to a present day membership of over 400.
