Dr. Richard D. Phillips serves as senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in downtown Greenville, SC. Previously, he pastored in Coral Springs, FL and Philadelphia, PA. Rick was raised in an Army family and grew up on posts around America. During his own time in the Army, Rick was active in Officer's Christian Fellowship and led Bible studies for students. Through these experiences, Rick and his wife concluded that God was calling him into a full-time pulpit ministry, so they left the Army and embarked on fulfilling God's call to the ordained ministry. Rick frequently speaks at conferences on the Bible and theology and is active in overseas missions, especially in East Africa. In addition to his ministry duties, Rick likes to spend time with his wife and five children. Rick is married to the former Sharon Wilkey, whom he met at church in Philadelphia. Sharon is a homemaker, author, and home-schooling mother.
