Who is Bart? Over three decades of Christian ministry, Bart became increasingly committed to building loving relationships, working for social justice and cultivating a sense of gratitude for the wonders of life. Now, as a community builder, counselor, podcaster, and a former humanist chaplain at the University of Southern California, he inspires and supports non-believers who are banding together to actively pursue goodness in an openly secular way. He also counsels and coaches. He is son to Tony Campolo, a renowned Christian Pastor and former spiritual advisor to former President Clinton.
