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 Christ likeness, 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.

From an IMD Donor:

For five years our congregation has partnered with the godly, competent leadership of IMD International to channel resources in a manner which assists the mission of IMD to teach and train pastors in parts of the world where many of us may never venture. IMD International is a Christ-centered ministry yielding much fruit in training indigenous pastors to preach the Gospel and build the Lord's Kingdom.


"Highly recommend the message of this book!" Phil Largent
"I readily admit that it verges on the impossible to describe in any degree of adequacy the conscious, manifest presence of God... The best I possibly can hope is to put forth my personal experience backed up by Scriptural exhortation. My part is only to whet the appetite and then trust the Holy Spirit to take it from there." (p.25)
