God does amazing things! I have repeated this statement many times in my life as a believer because I am continually amazed by His grace. From my personal deliverance from a life a destruction, to the blessings I have received through my lovely and godly wife, Carolyn and our two adult children, Bryce (his wife Ashley) and our daughter, Sarah. I have much reason to rejoice.
God’s grace has not been limited to my personal life. I am amazed that God has chosen to work through me by calling me to vocational ministry. After serving in churches in Michigan, Kentucky, and Texas, in 2009, God lead Carolyn and I to Wabash, Indiana. In our time here, we have seen God carry us and the church through great challenges and pour out great blessings.
My desire, as I seek to love God, love people and serve both here at New Life Baptist Church is to always be amazed by the transforming work of God and His amazing grace.

Philip serves as the Assistant Pastor with main roles being in Youth and worship.
I have been the Assistant Pastor at New Life since August of 2014. I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior when I was 14 years old, and knew God was calling me into ministry by the age of 16. I have a passion for God’s work to be done wherever He has me. A few of the relational things I enjoy are golf, games with teens, listening to and playing music.
I have learned many things about God as I have sought to follow Jesus in my life. Two that stick out to me: first, I am here only because the grace of God, and secondly, God’s plan for my life is much better than my own.
I am married to a wonderful woman, Sarah, and we have the most beautiful kids, our daughter Arya and our son Kaladin. Serving at New Life has been one of the greatest blessings in our lives, being able to share life, and most importantly Christ, with the people of Wabash.
God has called our family to serve as missionaries in the Country of Cambodia! We are working towards that goal right now while serving at New Life. We know God wants to use our families’ gifts and abilities to serve the people of Cambodia by helping to meet some of their physical needs, and most importantly, their spiritual need of knowing Jesus as their savior. I would ask you to join us in praying that God will provide all that is needed for us to get to Cambodia.
