OUR YOUTH PASTOR – PHIL BLUNT
My names Is Phil Blunt and I am the Youth Pastor at Ivybridge Methodist Church. I am married to Rebecca.
I grew up in a Christian family, learning about God from my parents as they worked full time with churches around England, setting up Sunday schools and youth groups, and sharing Jesus with schools. This gave me a passion for young people and a desire to share Jesus with them.
I moved away from home at the age of 18 when I attended New Tribes Mission Bible College to prepare for full time ministry. While I was there I really saw a passion for God in the students and a willingness to serve Him at all costs, even to a tribe where they didn’t speak your language.
After this I returned to my parents and we went on a mission trip. When we arrived back I received a phone call telling me, “We need a youth leader in Buckfastleigh”. I went down to Devon for an interview and within a week started the job as their Youth Leader. God really taught me a lot through this about trusting in Him and His plans for me. I also learned through the many mistakes I made as a new youth pastor.
After 2 years I volunteered to help Ivybridge Methodist Church with a youth group on Fridays, which led me to my current job as Youth Pastor here at Ivybridge Methodist Church.
My passion is to see young people’s lives transformed and set on fire to serve Jesus in word and deed wherever He leads them.
