Matthew 28:19

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Pastor Phil

Phil Emerson graduated Luther Seminary in 1997 and has been working in ministry ever since. Prior to working with Ten:27, Pastor Phil was the associate pastor at Crossroads Church in Lakeville. While there, God called him to plant a new church, a different kind church, and out of that came Ten:27.

Pastor Phil started by asking the question, “How can we reach people not being reached by a typical church model?” Not only that but why can’t church be as exciting and talked about as much as the Minnesota Vikings or Minnesota Twins? We’re going to try to do that with Ten:27 Ministries! In particular, Pastor Phil is very passionate about working with teens. Pastor Phil has been a licensed foster parent off and on for years. In addition, Pastor Phil is spectacular with computers and still works with his own computer consulting business on the side.

Pastor Phil is extremely passionate about people … taking care of people, making people feel important, connecting with people and more. His favorite philosophy in ministry is, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” And he lives this out all the time!
