Director of Student Ministries
Phil began attending DEC in the spring of 2011 after being saved through hearing the message of Jesus Christ on his first service trip to New Orleans, LA. He served in campus ministry with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship from 2011 up until his graduation from the University of New Hampshire in 2013.
Like most graduating seniors, Phil had too many ideas of what he wanted to do with his life, that he really had no concrete plan or idea for post college life. That was when he was offered an opportunity to work at DEC as the student ministry intern for a year. In his internship Phil discovered the true passions of his heart and the gifts that the Holy Spirit equipped him with to love and serve God’s people, especially teenagers and their families.
At the end of June of 2014 Phil was brought on as the Director of Student Ministries overseeing, running, and coordinating both Junior and Senior High School youth programs. He never imagined that he would work for a church and now he can’t imagine doing anything else.
Phil has been married to his wife, Amy, since 2014 and they have a daughter, Elena.
