Phil came into EMCC ministry in 1982. His singular passion is to see EMCC fulfill its calling and do its part in advancing the Kingdom of God. Phil began following Jesus in 1964 and preached his first sermon in 1966, church planted in 1971, served short term in 1973 in Africa, pastored in Toronto, studied at Wheaton Graduate School and did his doctoral studies at McMaster University. He has taught at Milliken College, Ontario Bible College (Tyndale), McMaster University and Emmanuel Bible College in biblical studies. He has been EMCC pastor of the Manitoulin charge of Salem and Mindemoya, Hamilton and Elmira before becoming eastern District Superintendent in 1998. He has served EMCC as president since 2004. He believes that God has called EMCC to see 'A Cell in Every Village, A Congregation in Every Town, A Celebration in Every City.' Phil loves to read widely and eclectically. He enjoys hiking and training the family dog. Phil and Michelle are thankful for the blessing of their five children and six grand children and continue to make their home in Elmira.
