Facing the Giant Called Poverty

When you face a giant it’s not hard to feel small… all I carry is a stone, a sling and a belief that the One who guides the stone is bigger than the one who throws it.

The Fellowship of the Ring

As Christians we are called to do life together in Fellowship in the same way the early church demonstrated.  But Fellowship is much more than simply doing life together, as we learn by looking at the Greek word ‘Koinonia’.

Host the Ghost

In this message Phil shares three modes of worship he’s observed;

1.  Slave – you give away control of your worship experience to others around you.

2.  Selfish – you hold on to control yourself, basing your worship on how you feel.

3.  Host the Ghost.  God-centred worship.

Listen as Phil shares four keys to push past level 1 and 2 and reach for level 3.

Pursuing Your Promise

How do we stay connected to the promise?



Our Fathers Heart

Phil speaks to us about Our Heavenly Father’s Heart as we see it demonstrated in the book of Philemon.

True Worshippers

From the story if the woman at the Well, we see how Jesus teaches us how to be true Worshippers.


  1. The end goal is always True Worshippers
  2. GOD is always the One who pursues.
  3. The Good News makes people thirsty
  4. His grace makes room for your gift
  5. Love points to the positive and implies the negative
  6. The Father is the focus
  7. An encounter with Truth releases Hope


Intimacy With God

Connections Church, Taumarunui

In this age when we are busy, busy, busy and demands pressing us on all sides… how do we find the space to be more intimate with God?

In this message Phil looks at:

  • what this looks like for us
  • what it looks like as other people look at us
  • the single key to stepping into greater intimacy



Let Your Light Shine

Sometimes doing good just isn’t enough.  We need to do more than that.


In this message, Phil shares principles from the powerful “call to action” from Paul in Ephesians 2:10.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”

And then Phil unpacks the “call to action” from Jesus himself, from Matthew 5:16.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
