Phil Thomas

Phil and his wife Adele have been with us at the Bundaberg Bible Chapel (BBC) since 1999. From that time, Phil has had responsibility as our Bible Teacher. Phil and Adele came to us following five years as missionaries in Colombia, South America, and has prior experience in indigenous education and ministry. Phil has a diverse background in farming, trades and education as well as theological education and training.

Phil and Adele delight in their four adult children and five grandchildren. Phil is happy with the simple things in life—a good book, a good meal, a good workshop and good family and friends.

Apart from serving the church at BBC, Phil’s ministry extends to itinerant teaching in other parts of Australia and overseas. He borrows Paul’s mission statement from Colossians 1:28-29 to capture his passion for life and ministry—Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.
