Autobiography or memoir seems to fall short of describing what occurs in these pages. Part testimony, part sociological and historical window into an under documented time, Campbell presents a powerfully vulnerable and truthful story of a young mans journey from 1980s Black urban living, through a prestigious prep school, a summer job working in New Yorks Port Authority Station during the height of the crack epidemic, all the way to an Ivy League campus, and a fruitful, life changing career in ministry. Rev. Charles L. Howard, Ph.D Aaron Campbell is the founder and lead pastor of Antioch Christian Fellowship (ACF) located in the heart of Philadelphia. ACF is said to be one of the most ethnically diverse churches in the region. Their massive events and outreaches including free citywide carnivals, fish frys, clothing drives, academic forums and lectures, and more have gained them regional recognition from colleges, to housing projects, to corporate spaces and city hall. Aaron has also done extensive work on Native American reservations, from the Canadian bush to the Alaskan bush to the lower 48. For his ongoing pioneering work, he was invited to speak on the plight of Native American poverty at the United Nations in New York City where he also spent considerable personal time with the UN global leader ofindigenous issues. Aaron is the founder and current CEO of Urban Dream Chasers, Inc., a 501 (c )3 dedicated to holistically serving at-risk Philadelphia youth from the most dangerous sections of the city. Aaron is also a chaplain president for the Philadelphia Police Department and works extensively to bridge the gaps between police officers and local Philly civilians. He also served as a chaplain with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team and traveled to some of the worst hard-hit places as a first responder in both the U.S. and abroad.
