Meet Our Director, Pastor Roger Phillips

I accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior as an 8-year-old while attending Vacation Bible School in Albany, Kentucky. Albany is the place of my physical birth as well as my spiritual birth. God has blessed me with a loving wife of 43 glorious years and 4 healthy adult children with a total of 12 grandchildren. An additional blessing is that all members of my immediate family are Christians. My children are training their children and raising them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

After serving and working in church as a Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and Discipleship Training teacher as well as a song leader for many years, God called me to preach and lead a local church as pastor. I began serving as pastor of a new mission congregation in Thomasville, Georgia while serving as Public Housing Minister for the Thomas County Association. Since then I have served as senior-pastor of several local churches since 2000, when I graduated from Florida Baptist Theological College, (Baptist College of Florida) and have received a Master of Divinity degree from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary through the extension campus at Birmingham, AL.

It has been one of life’s great honors to serve as a pastor in a local church and I count it as a blessing. I feel that this enables me to identify with the local church in a meaningful way so that Life Services can better understand and partner with a local church to assist them in the ministry that God has called all Christians to. I am blessed to be able to serve and lead such a great ministry as Life Services as their Executive Director. I pray that God will continue to allow me to serve and to use the spiritual gifts that He has given me to accomplish His will in the Kingdom.
