Rev. Phil Linton
World Outreach Director
Phil grew up in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Dayton, Ohio, and attended Wheaton College, where he met his wife, Janet, the daughter of Presbyterian missionaries to Taiwan. At Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Phil and Janet were profoundly influenced by Dr. J. Christy Wilson’s life of prayer and love for Muslims. Upon graduation, they were commissioned by North Africa Mission and Phil was ordained as an evangelist by the Presbyterian Church in America. After 15 years in the Arab world as a bi-vocational teacher/businessman/evangelist/pastor, followed by 15 years as Minister of Outreach at Ward EPC in Northville, Michigan, Phil became EPC World Outreach Director in 2014.
