Phil, a native of Victoria, is on a journey and wants to invite others to join -- a journey where we discover together what it means to be wholehearted followers of Jesus! "I have become aware that this is an ongoing journey of discovery that includes repentance, surrender, and embracing life with God with enthusiasm." Phil wears 2 main ‘hats’ on the staff team – a) caring for the seniors in our community and b) helping all of us to experience relationships at a deeper level in small groups (Community Groups). Phil is happily married to Martha. Their family includes 2 adult daughters, one son-in-law and a growing grandson (Oct 2020). Before coming to Central in 2021, Phil & Martha lived in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, where Phil served as Pastor of the International Church of Bishkek. Phil & Martha particularly enjoy afternoon visits with seniors in our church family!
