Pastor Greg Phillips spent the first years of his professional life as an ER nurse. He’s been a pastor since 1999, focusing on ministry to high school students and young adults. Ministry has been an incredible adventure, taking him to amazing locations like Ethiopia, Peru, Fiji, and Nicaragua. He’s even been to Boring, OR!
Born and raised in a Christian family, Greg was baptized at the age of 12. In high school, though, he made choices that put him on a different path–a path of sinful selfishness and pain.
As a junior in high school, I was doing a pretty good job of messing up my life. God met me right where I was and showed me how much I needed His forgiveness, grace, and mercy. I’m so thankful that He didn’t give up on me! Now I’m living for Him–forgiven and free!
Pastor Greg and his wife, Sandi, have been part of the PVC family since February of 2013. They have have two beautiful daughters. An avid rock climber, mountaineer, skier, and fisherman, Greg believes that spending time in creation helps to connect humans to their Creator.
