Phil serves in the position of Chaplain and Spiritual Animator with UCM Calgary. There are two parts to this role. First, there is the chaplaincy component. His full-time base is at the University of Calgary. There are chaplains of many different faiths with whom he interacts with regularly. This is a very pastoral type role but within a very pluralistic setting.
The University of Calgary has over 30,000 students from all over the world and is his main place of ministry. Phil is also the spiritual animator for two additional campuses: SAIT (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology), and MRU (Mount Royal University). Altogether, there are over 50,000 students, plus staff and faculty. Much like a missionary who enters a small city overseas and seeks the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit as to how to share the good news of Jesus, Phil is engaging these three campuses with a similar heart and vision. He desires to see these 50,000+ students and faculty impacted by the Kingdom of Jesus. blog.philaud.com/pastor-to-the-university
