Phil Joel is Sharing Hope
It’s #SharingHopeSunday and we’re featuring Phil Joel, bass player and vocalist of the Newsboy
On Sharing Hope, Phil talks about trusting God amidst the darkness of this world.
Phil grew up in New Zealand and moved to the US in 1994. Six weeks after arriving in the U.S. while on tour with Steven Curtis Chapman, he met his wife, Heather, at a radio station in Wichita, Kansas, and they were married in February 1996. Since that time, Phil has toured as a solo artist as well as part of the Newsboys, enjoying great success with Grammy nominations and wins. Phil also leads an organization he founded with his wife called deliberatePeople, which helps people be intentional about seeking God on a daily basis.
Phil and Heather make their home in Franklin, Tennessee with their children, Phynley and Eden, 2 dogs, Pip and Tira, and four chickens.
