December 6

Robert Cameron

On this date in 2012, Orthodox Presbyterian minister Robert Cameron died and entered into the presence of the Lord in glory. Born in 1932, Mr. Cameron enlisted in the US Army after high school and served in Korea. He then worked for the Ford Motor Company before becoming the owner-operator of his own trucking company. Mr. Cameron's heart, however, was in gospel ministry and he sold his company and entered Reformed Episcopal Seminary, eventually graduating from Trinity Theological Seminary with an M. Div., a Th. M., and a Th.D.

Ordained in the Reformed Episcopal Church in 1978, Mr. Cameron was received into the OPC in 2001. At the same time, Mt. Carmel Church, the congregation that had its beginning from a 1976 Bible study that Mr. Cameron led in his home in Somerset, New Jersey, was received as a congregation of the OPC. Mr. Cameron also served on the Board of Trustees of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.

Bravely fighting against cancer the last few years of his life, Mr. Cameron retired from active ministry in 2010.
