Hi, I am Phil Wilkinson. I am married to Cecilia and have four girls. Kimberley, Michayla, Jenna and Alyssa.
I have served the Lord in a number of ways. I was a leader on a mission with Operation Mobilisation in Romania for 6 weeks in 1997 and was a ship’s carpenter on the MV Doulos with Operation Mobilisation for 6 months in 1998.

I studied at Bible College of South Australia earning a Bachelor of Ministry in 2002 and at Tabor Bible College earning a Graduate Diploma of Ministry in 2012.

I was a Youth Pastor at the Vietnamese Evangelical Church in Renown Park for 12 months in 2003.

I am an ordained Churches of Christ minister. I have done a student ministry at Modbury Church of Christ for 1 year in 2004 and have served as Pastor at Goolwa Church of Christ 2005 to 2008 and Nailsworth Church of Christ 2008 to 2011.

Since then I have been lay preaching at a number of Churches of Christ Churches. More recently I have been worshipping at NCOH since Sept 2016.

I am really looking forward to serving the Lord as Pastor of NCOH.

We all pray that Phil will bless and be blessed as he serves the Lord and the people of NCOH !
