Helen Phillips emailed us in November of 2017 to say the following:
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for your courage and faithfulness in standing up for, supporting and encouraging so many of us in 200churches...
I would also like to thank you for always referring to pastors as both male and female and for speaking across the cultural divides as far as the Mornington Peninsula [here] in Victoria, Australia, where there are many small churches doing amazing things with few people or resources."
Helen got our attention in subsequent messaging, and we asked her to be on the podcast. She graciously accepted and we had a wide-ranging discussion with her about her own life and ministry, women in ministry, leading and serving others, being a ministry couple, and healthy systems, cultures, and teams.
The Venerable Helen Phillips is the Vicar of Mornington & Mount Martha Anglican Church on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, near Melbourne, which is in the far southeast of Australia. She is also the Archdeacon of Frankston, overseeing about twenty different parishes.
Enjoy this conversation with Helen!
