In search of a senior pastor.

Phil Oakley

Associate Pastor

Phil grew up in Roxboro, NC and came to Winston Salem in 1970 to get his his education at Wake Forest University.  He then went to Texas for 3 years at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. After graduation, He married Beth and they began their ministry together.  Phil has served as Senior Pastor in three churches, spent 9 years as the Director of MIssions in Morganton, NC and served for 20 years as a Missionary in West Africa. He and Beth always thought they might retire in Winston Salem when the time came.  It was an easy decision when two of their three daughters married and settled in the area. That allowed four of the seven grandsons to be close by. He is grateful to be able to serve in the community and continue to seek to be used of God to build HIs Kingdom here and around the world.
