Hi and thanks for learning more about us here at our website. I am Phil Dillingham, Senior Pastor at Priest Lake Christian Fellowship (PLCF).
My wife Connie and I came to PLCF on Christmas Sunday 1987 and worshipped with 10 other people that day. I had just resigned as the associate minister at a church in which I had grown up and to which I had devoted 15 years of my life. We came to PLCF simply as hurting Christians, not as a pastor and his wife. Tired and disappointed, we cried through every service for the first couple of months. What a healing place this was to us; the love was simple and tangible. It still is.
My job as pastor here is pretty simple: I am to love God with all my heart and love those around me, and I am to teach others how to love God with all their hearts and love those around them. There are specific things that God in Christ has called us to here, which we encourage you to read about elsewhere on this site; however, regardless of the specific calling, we believe love must be the foundation of it all. I look forward to meeting you soon.
