Board of Directors
The leadership of IBMGlobal is governed through its Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of Bible-believing pastors, missionaries and laymen who have a burden for missions and who are in full agreement with the outlined policies and procedures of IBMGlobal. Board members should be committed to the Mission’s growth in godliness, professionalism, effectiveness and opportunities of development for IBMGlobal.
In 1981, he planted Merrimack Valley Baptist Church in New Hampshire. The church has grown to a membership of over 800 and has planted several churches.

During his 40 years of ministry, his passion for world missions has not been diminished. He has ministered in over 35 different countries around the world and has been instrumental in starting and serving on several foreign mission boards.
Africa Field Director
Phil accepted Christ as his Savior shortly before his fifth birthday. As a teenager he surrendered his life to God to serve as a missionary. He attended Oklahoma Baptist College and at the same time pursued a private pilot’s license. In 1989 he married his wife Lori and they moved to Africa in March of 1992.
Phil’s vision is to see the gospel go to every village, town, and city in Africa. His passion is to train the next generation of God-called African leaders who will catch the same vision and will advance a truly indigenous church planting movement across the continent. For this reason he has dedicated his life to the establishment of Central Africa Baptist College and Seminary in Kitwe, Zambia.
Phil and Lori have been serving as missionaries in Africa since 1992. They are the parents of seven children: Cherith, Austin, Collin, Ashlyn, Carman, Tamaryn, and Corban.

Steve and Etta make their home in Raleigh, NC, where Steve is the Pastor of Mobilization in a local church. God has blessed them with four adult children and eight grandchildren.
