I will be teaching about this “I Am” statement of Jesus in John 10, and show how Jesus emulates the kind of leadership and pastoring that God intends for the church to demonstrate both to the church and the world. I will also give some advice on how to recognize good and bad leaders, and how to wield authority in a way that is Christlike, healing, and good.
My name is Tommy Phillips. I have been a pastor for 19 years in Tampa Florida, and have been a touring recording artist since for two decades under my middle name, Preson Phillips. I have released 7 studio albums since 2000, and currently hold a MA in New Testament theology from Northern Seminary in Chicago, Illinois, USA. I love making complex ideas easy to grasp, and creating corporate worship music to keep the church on mission. My pastoral work and music career have always worked hand in hand, and I am committed to guiding the worldwide church towards Christlike humility so that it can be the presence of Christ in a darkened world.
