John Hatfield, Music Minister

Fred Phillips

Associate Pastor Fred Phillips spent his youth and most of his first 48 years on this earth playing music in bars across the country. After his wife convinced him to go to church with her, Fred met Jesus and dedicated his life to ministry.
Fred has now spent over 35 years as an ordained minister, including over two decades serving an under-shepherd at the First Baptist Church of Marshallville. Fred MCs many of our events and stays active singing in retirement homes in Wooster/Smithville, Ohio.
