Phil was an elementary school teacher (mostly 6th grade) for about 10 years while also small group leading 2nd graders on Sundays at his church which was a new church plant at the time. He eventually moved into the Elementary Kids Ministry Director role where he became more familiar and passionate about the Orange strategy. Now as an Orange Kids Specialist, he loves having conversations with church partners about how to implement the Orange strategy in their specific ministry context.
