Our Leadership

Phil Dumond


I remember the day God called me into ministry. I was in NY City the day the towers got hit, to make a long story short I told God if I got out of the city alive I would spend the rest of my life serving Him. When I got home late that night I told my wife I wanted to chase God for the rest of my life, and that is what I have been doing. I have spent fifteen years serving God in youth ministry. I have always worked as a volunteer and have never been paid to work with students, I do it because I love students and consider it an honor to spend my life serving them. I had the privilege to study under Dr. Barry Leventhal at SES seminary in Charlotte, NC where I studied apologetics and church ministry. My full time job is in sales which has always given me the flexibility to dedicate my spare time to ministry. I love serving the Journey church and this community and can’t wait to see what God does in the lives of these students in the years to come. I married my best friend Becky, we went to high school together and although we did not date in high school we married in college and will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this July. We are blessed to have 3 amazing kids, Jordan, Joshua, and Kate.
