Phil Seers

Phil has been a faithful and loyal youth worker in United Youth for many years. He likes to rock climb, ride his motorcycle, go to music festivals and make it to one or two Detroit Red Wing games a year. He has many different hobbies and can be found rockin a mean mohawk, with a different hair color for each season of the year, like no one you’ve ever met! One thing that never changes with him is, he has a heart for the teens of this generation. Every week he makes time to invest into their lives for the glory of God.

Do you have a testimony of what God has done or is doing in your life? We would love to hear about it!!!
