Ron Phillips, DMin, in 1979 was called as pastor of Central Baptist Church located in the Chattanooga, Tennessee, area, where he serves today. Under his ministry this Southern Baptist church has experienced the birth and growth of many ministries and has exploded into new realms of renewal and spiritual awakening. Phillips has a bachelor’s degree from Samford University and a master of divinity and a doctorate of ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. In 1989 he felt in his spirit that the joy in serving had left him, but then he had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that changed his life forever. He is the author of numerous books, including Our Invisible Allies and Everyone’s Guide to Demons and Spiritual Warfare.
