Phil originates from the Upper Peninsula and has worked as a Mentoring Program Coordinator, Director of Human Resources at a Mackinac Island resort, Director of Life Skills Classes at a community resource agency, and as a pastor and Director of Children, Youth, and Young Adult Ministries at a local church. He is an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America and is currently in the process of becoming a licensed therapist. He is also serving an interim role at Hope Church, overseeing their middle and high school programming, Bible Pride (the Hope College LGBTQ+ students and allies Bible Study), and Pub Theology. He volunteers with the Gender/Sexuality Allies Youth Group based out of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Grand Haven and
has served on a number of boards and community foundations, as well as executive teams for organizations including the Muskegon Continuum of Care and RCA Holland Classis.
Phil’s experiences growing up in a rural community, serving in the church, in human resources, and in social justice work have made him passionate about supporting people who have experienced marginalization and trauma in the workplace, in the church, at school, and in their communities – especially around issues related to sexuality and gender. Whether in the counseling office, facilitating groups, or through writing, speaking, and advocacy, Phil is dedicated to creating and facilitating safe spaces where people know that they matter and belong.
