Bethany Barr Phillips
Leading worship and sharing her story of healing, Bethany Barr Phillips takes eight years of church staff experience to the road with a vision to share the Gospel through worship. She has opened for artists such as Andrew Peterson and Bebo Norman, been in lineups with Audio Adrenaline and Toby Mac, and has led worship on platforms with gifted speakers like Scott Dawson, David Nasser and Dr. Jay Strack. Through these experiences, her heart for leading worship and seeing God move among His people only becomes greater.
In January of 2006, Bethany was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer after miscarrying her first child. After six months of chemotherapy, she is now living cancer free. She is mother to Isaiah Jewel and wife to Andy Phillips.
Student Life is excited to have Bethany Barr Phillips leading students in glorifying Christ through praise this summer.
Fort Lewis CollegeStudent Life Camp at Fort Lewis College is a life-changing experience set against the most beautiful backdrop imaginable. The school’s nickname, Colorado’s “Campus in the Sky,” is largely because of its lofty location in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. With beautiful, temperate weather and mountainous landscape, the campus seems to sit high above the rest of the world. For a Student Life camper, that means the right environment for focusing on God and having fun with friends in a week-long Christ-centered camp. The visually pleasing sandstone architecture reflects the cultural impact of the native Pueblo Indians, whose centuries-old towns give the region a unique historical quality not found at many other camp locations.
