About Phillip
  • Education: I graduated in May 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Civil) from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I have examined seminary possibilities to "sharpen the tool," but God has not led me to the right place. I am a bivocational pastor, and God has blessed me with 2 mission fields. I work as an assistant to the First Division Construction Engineer with the Alabama Department of Transportation.
  • Experience: I have been preaching since January 1998. I was 16 when I began, and I had preached 118 messages before beginning my pastorate at Providence. I have always loved to visit and preach at different churches, but my heart is in pastor preaching. I love to preach series on different books and characters in the Bible as well as lead historical and religious studies when appropriate.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope these outlines help. I never have been one to write a full transcript (except for what I have posted on this site), so bare bones outlines and references is all I normally will add. These are just basic ideas to encourage you to study more than you ever have. I like to be challenged and for people to search harder in the Bible because they have seen what God has given me.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: The sermon that really made the difference in my life was the one my dad preached the night I got saved (Sunday, August 14, 1988). He preached from Matthew 25 on the separation of the sheep and the goats. That message had the single greatest impact in my life because it showed me my need for Jesus.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: What is found in the message of Dr. Johnny Hunt’s "Beavers, Fallen Trees, and Dammed Up Lives." The Beavers represent Satan at work trying to dam up our spiritual streams with distractions and discouragements (fallen trees) until we finally have no spiritual flow whatsoever in our lives.
  • Family: I am married to the former Carrie Hogan of Scottsboro. My father, Ronnie Day, has been a pastor since 1978, and my great-grandfather, Frank Rowell, was a pastor before him. My younger brother, Alan, is also a called preacher, and my mother, Pam Day, has led youth and young adult choirs everywhere she and my father have been. God has also blessed many others in our family with callings and ministries, and I am blessed to be a part of it.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They are always very supportive. Only in the early going did Dad give any advice which is encouraging to me.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is always honest. She has let me know when I get repetitive, but she also reassures me when I have gotten the point across.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Always be true to the Bible, not some ideas you’ve heard or developed. Always preach with love for the people you are preaching to. Sheep need to be fed, not to be beaten.
  • Books that have had an impact: Several books come to mind, but one of my favorites is by Dr. Johnny Hunt, "Building Your Spiritual Resume’".
  • Hobbies: I love to play the guitar and to play the drums. I am nowhere near professional in either one, but I have found a way to play. I love football...especially college football (Roll Tide!!!). Sports in general are fun to me.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus is the one; yes, He’s the only one. Give your life to Him, and allow Him to rule you. You’ll never regret it.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I got tongue-tied when saying "fault finder" and it came out all wrong.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Never perfect in this life, but finally perfect in heaven.
