Over the years I have watched Phil move by faith from serving the local church to a broader ministry of training and equipping leaders for the larger Body of Christ worldwide. He's helping us fulfill the command to make disciples by "teaching them to obey everything" "...to the ends of the earth." I recommend him and IMD to you for support and as an assistant to you for your own assignment in the Kingdom.

I can wholeheartedly endorse Phil as a man specially gifted by God in the area of teaching and training believers. I've witnessed first-hand the desire God has placed in Phil's heart to lead to Christ the unsaved peoples throughout the world, as well as to aid in the development of the teaching and pastoring skills of those called by God into ministry in places such as South Africa, Ukraine and India.
God has given Phil a passion and a burden to train and support those who are serving Jesus Christ all over the world. I believe that God had been preparing Phil for the ministry of IMD International.

Phil's ministry of teaching and equipping has been a blessing to local church teachers in my church as well as those across the region of Colorado & Rocky Mountain area. Phil knows how to network and connect resources. He loves connecting people who have gifts to ministries that can use those gifts for God's glory.

Phil has always been consistent in his character, demeanor, integrity and mission emphases. Recently, in traveling to and ministering in India, I was impressed with Phil's Christlikeness, passion, humility, and thoroughness with which he performed every task. I listened to Phil teach both solid biblical truths and practical applications for ministry. I have observed how others were positively impacted with Phil's teaching and his caring ministry.

When I visit and meet with Phil, I see an impassioned man whose heart's desire is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. His energy, his empathy, his enthusiasm, and excitement all point to this cause and calling. Thank God we get to share a place alongside men like Phil in advancing God's kingdom.

Phil honestly and openly seeks God's will and timing for ministries here and abroad. He has been instrumental in organizing ministries and events that have shaped many lives in my church and around the world.
Larry Van Vleet, M.D.
I know Phil to be a man of high integrity. He is a good steward f resources. I believe he understands and lives out the Great Commission. In addition, I believe he is passionate about developing effective leaders for our churches. In a day when many are looking for the "minimum requirement," Phil is looking for the "maximum opportunity" to serve.
