Pastor Phillip became our pastor in March of 2014. He was raised in Fredericktown, MO, and has pastored churches in Texas and Florida. He placed his faith in Christ when he was 11 years old and surrendered to the call of ministry when he was 17. He attended Liberty University for his undergraduate degree and earned his M.Div. and Ph.D. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been married to his beautiful wife, Jamie, for 11 years and they have three children, Brenden, Reese, and Indee. His own ministry philosophy is to help others live a Christ-centered life and to make Him known. He also enjoys coffee, reading, running, and watching St. Louis Cardinals’ baseball.
