2019 Advent Devotional Available

This 2019 Advent Devotional is our fourth time to offer this resource to you and the church.

This Advent season, we pray this devotional speaks hope, peace, joy, and love into your life. We also pray it provides opportunities for you to be challenged in your faith journey and to see a scripture in a new light, while also helping you think about Jesus in different ways. May we approach this special season of the church with the vulnerability of a newborn baby.

This Advent devotional for you and your congregation is just one of the ways Phillips serves to build and sustain a more educated church. Theological education is a lifelong journey and the Phillips community is grateful to make this journey alongside you.

Check out the Devotionals on our website here.



Technology Announcement

Faculty have encountered some integration problems between the Blackboard Open LMS mobile app and Panopto. These integration problems can make it impossible to track activity completion and to embed quizzes and other activities. Both vendors have been notified of the problem and asked to work on a fix. In the meantime, faculty may need to require students to access Panopto lectures using a web browser rather than the Open LMS mobile app. Your instructor will be able to guide you on the requirements for your class.
