With a clear vision to advance the Gospel, Bethany Barr Phillips has a heart to serve the local church through leading worship or communicating at events, conferences, and local churches. This Mississippi native uses life moments and over 15 years of church staff and ministry experience to connect with others while remaining authentic, honest and encouraging. She began leading worship in her student ministry at 15, and quickly learned that leading wasn’t just about the platform. From that moment on, Bethany has been intentional about building relationships and having interaction with those she feels God puts in her path.
