our pastor


Phil and his wife Marla moved to Edmonton in 2006 and quickly fell in love with this great city. He is passionate about making faith relevant to today’s culture and loves seeing individuals discover and live out their God-given potential. He believes in creating a church greater Edmonton wants to attend and truly believes church is a place where all people are welcome. Phil and Marla have two daughters who also enjoy calling this their home church.
