Preaching & Teaching Pastor
Phil has attended CCC since 2008, while he has served as associate professor of Bible and Biblical Languages at Clearwater Christian College. He joined the pastoral staff in the fall of 2012 to oversee the preaching and teaching ministries of the church. Phil completed his B.S. in Bible at Maranatha Baptist Bible College (WI), M.Div. and Th.M. degrees at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary (PA), and a Ph.D. in Christian Theology (NT) at McMaster Divinity College (Ontario, CAN).Phil has been married to Tia since 1998, and they have two girls, Hallie and Emily. His hobbies include watching and participating in most sports, but golf more than any of the others. He enjoys reading, writing, watching a good movie, and, most of all, spending time with his girls.
Josh attended CCC for the first time as a freshman in high school. His heart for ministry was shaped during his four years in the youth ministry at CCC. After receiving his bachelors degree from the University of Florida, he spent a year in Mars Hill, NC and then came on staff in 2004. Josh spent ten years in student ministry and in September of 2014, he transitioned to the role of worship pastor. He is passionate to see all of Christ's church built up in her love and adoration of, and faithfulness to, her Savior. He and his wife Kari have three kids. She's the most amazing woman he knows and they're the most amazing kids he knows. Crazy, but amazing. Together, they're learning to live obediently in the grace of God. Josh loves being with his family, the church, the mountains, weather below 70 degrees, people watching (in a non-creepy way) and underlines with a straight edge in his Bible. He is working on his Masters of Arts in Christian Leadership through Dallas Theological Seminary.
