About the Author

In 1979 Ron Phillips was called as pastor of Central Baptist Church located in the Chattanooga, Tennessee, area, where he serves today. Under his ministry, this Southern Baptist church has experienced the birth and growth of many ministries and completed several building projects, but more importantly, the church has exploded into new realms of renewal and spiritual awakening. Having earned a bachelor’s degree from Samford University, as well as a master of divinity and a doctorate of ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, his successes were many. But in 1989, he felt in his spirit that the joy in serving had left him. He was burned out in ministry and ready to resign when he had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that changed his life forever. With Pastor Phillips' new anointing came a deeper passion to reach across America and eventually around the world with the powerful message of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
