Barry & Tammy Camp

Senior Pastors

We are the Senior Pastors of The Rising Church.  We feel that God has shown us favor by giving us the best church family to shepherd.  We are just a small part of God’s plan to build His kingdom, but we also know that every part is important and crucial in seeing that His plan is fulfilled.  We love the Lord Jesus, and we love His people. We know that according to His Word we are called to be His hands, feet, and mouth here in the earth to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are called to love, forgive, serve, and give.  We believe and trust that His Word is true and will stand and that we are called to Praise and Worship as long as we have breath.  We thank Jesus Christ for allowing us to be His servant and we thank TRC for allowing us to serve them as Pastors and we look forward to what God has in store for us in the upcoming years.

Johnny & roma Powell 

Associate Pastors

We have been married since 1975.  We have two daughters and two grandchildren.  We have been in ministry of some kind for most our adult lives.  Our hearts and passion are to serve God by serving other people in whatever way God wants.  God placed us at The Rising Church (formally Harvest Praise Church) from its beginning in 1999.  We have worn many different hats and God has used us to minister in many different ways.  Currently we serve as lead pastors for the senior saint’s ministry, the JOY Group (Just Older Youth) and the intercessory prayer team (The TRC Prayer Warriors).  As part of The Rising Church Pastoral team, we help teach and train.  We serve along side and support the other pastoral team members and their ministries as a team united to see the vision of “Winning Souls and Making Disciples” a reality in The Rising Church family.  We serve in the alter to assist our senior pastor’s Bishop Barry and Pastor Tammy minister to all who come to the alter for prayer.  Our heart is to serve God, serve people and build the Kingdom of God.  Mark 12:29-31 (NLT) Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord.  And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.  The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
