According to a recent Barna Group study, 8 out of the 10 most Post-Christian cities in America are in (or border) New England states. More than 50% of pastors leave New England each year discouraged.

But those numbers are changing! Among the pastors who attend the Pastor's Encouragement Retreat, the number of pastors who leave New England has decreased from 50% to just 7%.

Phil Waldrep Ministries (incorporated in 1980 as Phil Waldrep Evangelistic Association, Inc.) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) Christian ministry located in Decatur, Alabama. We are governed by a board of directors and led by Southern Baptist evangelist, Phil Waldrep.

Mission statement

Statement of faith

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed literal miracles, died a blood-atoning death, was bodily resurrected from the grave, ascended to the Father, and will return literally in the future.

The Holy Spirit resides in every believer and is there to guide the believer in knowing the mind of Christ.

We believe in one God co-existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God and is the sole guide for faith and practice.

Salvation is by grace alone without any effort on the part of man.

The local church is the God-ordained institution for fulfilling the purpose and plan of God.
