Our Staff

Pastor BradGreetings!

My name is Brad Phillips and I am the new pastor here at Wilderness Community Church. I am originally from Ohio. I grew up living in many places because my father
was military including Southeast Asia. I went to high school in Staunton, Virginia. I
graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in geology in 1974. I graduated from
Eastern Mennonite Seminary in Harrisonburg, VA, in 1982.

I have served in ministry for 45 years serving churches across Virginia. I served
mostly in Tidewater Virginia. Part of that time I was a District Superintendent in
the Norfolk area. I retired in 2017. In retirement, I recently finished a two-year
appointment at Liberty Church in Bealeton, Va. Before that I served as an interim
pastor at Wilderness Church. Kay and I have two children and five grandchildren.
The oldest Hailey will go to college at Towson State in Baltimore. The others are
15, 13, 11, and 9.
