Jan Phillips

Jan Phillips

Associate Pastor

Having been raised in a Christian home, I came to a personal relationship with Christ at a young age. My father encouraged me to share my story with anyone who would stop and listen, which sparked an evangelistic spirit within me. While in college, I had the wonderful opportunity to travel the U.S. on two ministry teams. Upon graduating with a B.S. in Speech Pedagogy with a double minor in music and theology, I began working at Saint Andrew UMC as the assistant music minister. During my tenure at Saint Andrew, I transitioned into the role of Director of Worship and earned a M.A. in music and worship. I am currently pursuing a M.Div at Wesley Theological Seminary, as God has called me into pastoral ministry. Being a native of New Jersey, I greatly enjoy the Jersey shore and love wake boarding and boardwalk pizza.
