Philip De Courcy
Philip De Courcy is the senior pastor of Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills, California, and teacher on the daily media program, Know The Truth.
Philip was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to Christian parents who instilled in him a love for the Lord, Jesus Christ. At sixteen years of age, Philip trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.
Growing up in a neighborhood where civil tension was commonplace, many of Philip’s friends became involved in acts of terrorism. As a result, Philip decided to serve as a part-time reserve police officer in the Royal Ulster Constabulary in North Belfast. Although some of his comrades were injured and even killed during that six-year period, Philip was unharmed. To this day, he believes God used this faith-building season to prepare him for pastoral ministry.
After receiving pastoral training, Philip spent six years shepherding the congregation of Carr Baptist Church in Lisburn, a suburb of Belfast. Then, in 1994, Philip relocated his family to the United States to attend the Masters’ Seminary, then later serving as Senior Pastor in churches in Southern California and central Ohio. In 2007 Philip began his current ministry as Senior Pastor at Kindred Community Church. Pastor Philip is also the teacher on the daily broadcast Know The Truth – heard on more than 600 radio stations in the United States, as well as on a variety of digital platforms.
He and his wife, June have three grown daughters and one son-in-law, recently becoming grandparents to a beautiful granddaughter.
