Philip (Phil) was born in Princeton, Illinois to parents who were both school teachers. They left their comfortable life situation with their three young children to train for and enter full time ministry. Although Phil grew up in a pastor's home, he thought he would an educator or a business major in college. However, after a year at Illinois State, trying every major that sounded interesting, it soon became clear that he would find his best fulfillment in ministry.
He transferred to Wheaton College where he earned a bachelor's degree in Biblical studies. After graduation he moved to Columbia, Mo. where he accepted a position as an assistant principal at a Christian school and as a youth pastor. The following year he married his wife Melanie. When she graduated from college Phil felt called to return to seminary for further education. While a student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, Phil served as an associate pastor at a local congregation and was a reserve military chaplain. Just after graduating with a Master of Divinity, the little family was blessed with a baby daughter, Natalie.
Shortly after Natalie's birth, they moved to Oklahoma City so that Phil could be a hospital chaplain intern. At the end of the internship Phil was faced with the decision to go on as a hospital chaplain, become a full time army chaplain or pursue a pastoral position. He chose move to Murphysboro, IL where he remained for nearly 19 years and was the lead pastor at Christ Community Church. The family added two more children, Kristiana and Noah, during their time in Murphysboro.
While serving at the church, Phil enrolled at Fuller Theological Seminary, and received his Doctor of Ministry in 2006. He and his family found a the rural town in the rolling hills to be an wonderful home. Phil believed he would remain with the congregation throughout his entire career. The small congregation had grown to a thriving church with a regional focus and state of the art facilities. The Bible college Christ Community began in 2010 was preparing people for ministry. Life seemed promising and secure.
Then seemingly out of the blue, Phil received a call from Knoxville, TN asking him to consider becoming the pastor of a small congregation in the city. Through a series of events it became clear that God was calling Phil and his family to uproot and begin a new venture at the congregation then known as Bethesda Christian Fellowship.
