Phil obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in International Ministries from Moody Bible in Chicago. He is a licensed minister through the Assemblies of God.
He worked in several areas of video production and training with International Media Ministries of the Assemblies of God World Missions for ten years.
Following his time with IMM, Phil and his family returned to Belgium and served another ten years as facilitators of national ministries including a Christian radio station, a Christian school, other ministry opportunities with national churches for evangelism outreaches and children’s summer programs, and with the Belgian Teen Challenge Coffee House ministry to the homeless. Seeing the tremendous need among American youth and his experience with the Belgian TCCH, his passion was ignited to reach out to the youth in this country.
Through a series of events that Phil believes could only have been by divine direction, he now serves on the OTC discipleship team and teaches a daily “issues driven” Bible class to the boys who are in the 1st phase of the program.
