Pastor Phillip

Hi, my name is Phillip.


I believe that you are uniquely wired by God for a specific purpose, and that unless you figure out what that purpose is, you'll never be truly fulfilled.


No one else on earth can fulfill the unique calling that God has for you.


No one else can fulfill your assignment. 


Maybe you know exactly what your purpose is, maybe you've been running from it for a while, or maybe you have absolutely no idea where to even start looking for it...


But I want to help you find it.


Because I believe that the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who actually do...
