Jeff and Kathy Phillips met at William Jessup University were married in mid-1970s. After just one year they went to help and learn from missionaries in Chile, but even before they arrived, the missionaries in Chile disbanded and left Jeff and Kathy with no support, and no real missions experience. They started a Kid’s club which attracted not only the kids but their parents and siblings who were very interested to hear about the Bible stories they taught. From this small beginning, their ministry has grown and started 2 non-profits, a Bible Institute, and over 33 church and para-church organizations in South America, east Africa, and the Middle East.
Jeff and Kathy have 4 children, Heidi, Gabe, Eric and Tony, all of whom possess musical abilities which Jeff notes, “must have come from Kathy’s genes.”
