Phillip's our 2023 speaker with a passion for Preaching god's word

Phillip is married to Helen and has three adult children and 13 grandchildren.

Phillip has been active in various ministries for many years including student ministry at the University of New South Wales, Rector of St Matthias Centennial Park and Dean of Sydney at St Andrew’s Cathedral. During this time, he was chairman of Katoomba Christian Convention, founded Matthias Media, Ministry Training Strategy, and numerous evangelistic ministries as well as writing several books.

Some of his works include Two Ways to Live, Guidance and the Voice of God, Prayer and the Voice of God, By God’s Word and The Coming of the Holy Spirit. You can find sermons and essays by Phillip at phillipjensen.com

Phillip has recently published a major book on the work of the Holy Spirit. These talks will introduce us to the main thesis of the book so we can understand the purpose for which Jesus sent the Holy Spirit into the world.

In addition to our special guest speaker we have a number of local pastors and ministry workers who will be speaking at NQCC 2023. Our local speakers will be looking at Songs of the Spirit, preaching from various Psalms.
