Rev. Annetta Camp - Associate Pastor

"There is no one who is insignificant in the purpose of God. Wherever you are, be all there!" - Annetta

Teaching special education in public schools seemed to be Annetta's calling, and she was content in that vocation for 28 years. However, In the late 1990’s, she began to feel the call to change her vocation. Through scripture study and prayers for wisdom and discernment, she knew God was preparing her for a new direction in her seemingly settled life.  She began studies at Memphis Theological Seminary in 2002, and was called to Dyersburg Cumberland Presbyterian church as their Director of Christian Education in June 2003. After receiving her Master of Divinity degree, she was ordained in March 2008, becoming the Associate Pastor for Cumberland. Although her husband passed away in 2009, she enjoys living on her family farm with their two boys and their families. You can contact pastor Annetta anytime at
