Becoming Phil Bowdle: How To Live A Story Worth Telling

Becoming Me

I am so excited to introduce you to my warrior friend Phil Bowdle! Grab a cup of coffee and join Phil's & my conversation unpacking his story, how he is becoming who God made him to be, and how we too can grow on our becoming journey… ----- Meet Phil Bowdle: Phil Bowdle got his start in church as a pastor’s kid making faces at his Dad while he preached. Growing up, he had no desire to be involved in ministry. Now there’s nothing he’d rather do than to help churches creatively put Jesus on display. For 18+ years, Phil has been serving in the trenches of creative ministry. Most recently, Phil served at West Ridge Church in Northwest Atlanta as the Creative Arts Pastor overseeing worship, production, video, and communications teams. He now serves as a coach, consultant, and a Senior Associate at Slingshot Group. Phil recently released a best-selling book “Rethink Communication: A Playbook to Clarify and Communicate Everything In Your Church” that has helped shape the communication strategy for churches all over the world. He’s passionate about helping churches build remarkable teams that can take advantage of some of the best opportunities we’ve ever had in communicating the gospel. Phil is a coffee snob, long-suffering Cincinnati Bengals fan, and resides in Northwest Atlanta with his wife, Sarah, and their kids Ethan and Ava Joy. ----- Connect with Phil Bowdle Online: https://philbowdle.com https://www.instagram.com/philbowdle ----- Connect with Emily Cummins Online: Website: http://www.becomingme.tv/ TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilybcummins Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/emilybcummins Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/emilybcummins Twitter:  https://www.twitter.com/emilybcummins/ ------ We’re all on this grand journey becoming who God made us to be.
