Clayton Leland Camp
On March 30 Clayton Leland Camp entered into the presence of his Lord Jesus Christ. There will be a private burial at the Veterans Memorial Park. The date of his Celebration of Life service at Central Bible Church will be posted later on

Clayton was born in Paris France where his missionary parents studied French to prepare for ministry in the Central African Republic. He spent his childhood in Africa until the age of twelve when he returned to the states to attend school at Westervelt, a home for missionary children. Upon graduation, he studied at Columbia Bible College where he earned a BA in Biblical Arts. He was drafted into the United States Army in 1950 during the Korean War. He was stationed at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma as a Private 1st Class where he was an assistant instructor for the artillery. While he was stationed there, he attended Central Baptist Church where he met Loveta Sue Walker. They married on September 19, 1952, two days after he was discharged from the Army.

Clayton and Sue had two daughters, Leah and Lisa Kay, and raised them at their home on Dale Dr. in Arlington, TX. Their home was always open to people for Sunday dinners, social gatherings, and impromptu visits. Clayton’s dry sense of humor was enjoyed around the kitchen table.

After the Lord gave him 2 grandchildren, Clayton shared bedtime stories when Maddie and Alex visited about his boyhood African adventures, including encounters with lions and leopards. The animal bedtime stories came to an end after his grandson came running into Grandad’s room afraid of the lions he saw lurking behind trees in the wallpaper.

Clayton had many jobs in his life, but for over 50 years his life work was centered around sharing his faith. Clayton answered Christ’s calling to go into mission work in the States. Fair and Rodeo Evangelism, Inc. was the ministry where most of his years were spent. He was on the Board of Directors until shortly before his death. Many people will be meeting Clayton in heaven one day because they opened their hearts to Christ when he and other fellow believers shared the Gospel at state and county fairs, rodeos, festivals, and other exhibits, including The State Fair of Texas and The Fort Worth Stock Show. The Camp family attended Central (Pantego) Bible Church. Over the years, Clayton was a Sunday School teacher, deacon, elder, and overall servant of the Lord.

During the month of March, Clayton was hospitalized, diagnosed with late stage pancreatic cancer, and sent home where Hospice Care tended to the whole family. Until the very end, he ministered to others through phone calls and visits at his bedside, praying and sharing his faith, always focusing on Jesus, not himself.

We can all rejoice that Clayton is in the presence of his God he served so faithfully!

Clayton's passion for evangelism inspired me. He was so faithful and persistent. As a pastor, I love that he was so involved in getting other believers to share their faith in Jesus Christ. I'll be praying for the family now and looking forward to fellowshiping with my brother for eternity. In His Grace, Dr. John Salvesen, Senior Pastor, Bear Creek Bible Church, Keller, TX.

My Mom & Dad (Connie & Larry Fauber) attended Pantego Bible Church and were good friends with Clayton & Sue for many years. I remember them visiting our home many times, and seeing Clayton at the State Fair. I've uploaded a photo of them attending mom & dad's 25th wedding anniversary costume party in 1979. My condolences for your loss.

Clayton was always there for our family, to pray with us, to encourage us, bring us cookies as we sat in hospital waiting rooms, and just be with us. He always reminded us of the promises of Jesus & that we knew we could depend on them. He was kind, compassionate & generous. He was definitely a true man of God, and we will certainly miss him...until we see him again & I KNOW we will!

Mr. Clayton Camp was a great example of an evangelist. He took some of us seminary students to work with him in his evangelistic booth at the Texas State Fair. Thanks to his help, it was easy and enjoyable to win souls to the Lord. That was almost 40 years ago. He has sent me letters through all these years to keep me updated on his evangelistic ministry at the fair. When I finished teaching an online Bible College class this week, not knowing that Clayton Camp had gone on to heaven just 3 days earlier, I closed with an illustration from our evangelistic outreach at the fair--where we used his God's Plan of the Ages Map and allowed people to take a quiz about the percentage of faith or works needed to go to heaven. The right answer was 100% faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and 0% of our own works. If someone answered that any percentage of their own works would allow them into heaven, we showed them the Bible verses that said it is not by works (Eph. 2:8-9), and many got saved by putting their complete trust in Jesus (John 3:16). Since that time I continue to enjoy handing out gospel tracts--sometimes hundreds a month--to the people who cross my path, most of whom I will never meet again until hopefully many of them will greet me in heaven someday. What a multitude of people will greet Brother Clayton in heaven thanking him for helping them to come to Jesus! If you want to go to heaven, please do not wait too long to put your trust in Jesus who died for your sins (Romans 5:8) and rose again on Easter (Roman's 10:9)! What a blessing Clayton was. May God comfort and bless.
In Jesus, Dr. Joel Pinter, 4/4/20, ABC Bible Faculty, Mt. Hope, WV
