Pastor Phil Houston, Lead Pastor
Phil is the lead pastor at Park Avenue Bible Church. He started that role in January of 2019, after being the Youth and Family Pastor for 6 years previously at PABC. Phil was called to ministry in 2003, in Swift Current, SK and was ordained in 2006. As lead pastor, Phil is responsible for the bulk of the preaching at PABC as well as work with elders, other PABC staff, the ministries of PABC that are “Connect” ministries, overseeing the discipleship and adult teaching ministries, and a few other areas, like the church softball team - which is a big interest of his. He also loves music, vintage video games, and watching Marvel superhero movies with his wife and favourite person, Jessica. His three children are Maggie, Evelyn and Henry, and are the other favourites in Phil’s life!
There are many meaningful verses in Phil’s life, but the one that is most meaningful at present is Proverbs 15:33: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and humility comes before honour.
