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." More recently, Phil, now 62, has been reading up on what it means to “age well.” Having joined CBC staff in March 2021 as Pastor to Seniors, he is passionate about helping all seniors “age well” and remain well connected to Jesus and to the Body of Christ at Central. Phil is happily married to Martha. Their family includes 2 adult daughters, one son-in-law and a new grandbaby (Oct 2020). Before coming to Central, Phil & Martha lived in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, where Phil served as Pastor of the International Church of Bishkek. Phil loves everything international - people, culture, food, travel, church, etc.!
