About Philip

I had the privilege to grow up going to church my whole life. The sad thing was that I did not really believe in Jesus' perfect life, death, and resurrection from the grave until I was 15 years old. I made that decision when I was at Word of Life The Coast (formerly known as the Word of Life Florida Youth Camp). Since I made that decision, I became more active in the ministry with Word of Life. I started volunteering my summers working in the Camp Crew program and then God led me to studying for two years at the Word of Life Bible Institute. During my time there, I developed a strong passion and urge to share the Gospel overseas. Towards the end of my time studying at the Bible Institute, I was introduced to the Cross-Cultural Internship that Word of Life provides and was given the opportunity to serve in Portugal.
