I first heard Phil Pringle preach in 1987 at a church conference in Perth.
I was a young pastor & Phil was in the early years of leading a dynamic & fast growing church in Sydney’s northern beaches.
My initial reaction was astonishment at how such a young guy could be so trendy, bold & anointed all at the same time!
I loved his turn of phrase & story telling. Phil has a unique way of stating truth.
But what I loved even more was the encounter I had with God at that conference. I had a vision that I can still remember to this day.
Incredibly, every time I would hear Phil minister throughout the ensuing decade I would have a very significant encounter with God.
Encounters that I can still recall today with stunning clarity.
I guess it’s no real surprise then that we joined Phil’s movement, C3 Church in 2001 when we were looking to join a visionary movement.
Undoubtedly God had been preparing my heart for years.
My only regret is I took so long to jump into C3 Church!
