Phil loves being on the move, if standing still was a sport he’d be the worst in the world! He loves his wife, kids, and grandkids. He’s pastored in the UK and in the Middle East, and currently helps lead a Church in the mountains just outside Whistler BC.
Whether he’s helping to run outreach teams all across Europe or speaking to small groups and conferences around the world his passion for making the Bible a living reality to guide 21st century “humans” in everyday life is a central theme to everything he does.
He loves God, is committed to serving the local Church and wrestles with the things that annoy him about the Bible. But … he is horrible at video games, board games and committee meetings… so don’t ask him to play Settlers of Catan!!

Gianne Stover is from Bonnyville Alberta, and is 46 years young. She is a wife, mom, mom-in-law, and Gee-Gee (Grandma), and recently became a teacher. She loves adventure, painting, board games with friends, traveling, snorkeling, zip-lining, and wants to know where is the best place to try sky-diving?
When her first son was born she realized she needed to put feet to her faith so she began her journey of studying God's stories so that she could teach her family. As a result, she worked as the Children's Pastor at her church for 8 years so she could teach more kids! And then her family started Camp Shekinah so they could teach even more!
As a Camp Speaker, she takes you through the whole Bible to show how God's story is a plan to save us from self-destructing. Using video, object lessons, games, and God's Word, see just how far God will go for you!
