Philip Walkley

Philip has lived his entire adult life (almost 20 years) in low-income communities of color, first as a youth pastor in a small town in Mississippi and since 2007 in Memphis, TN, serving as the Executive Director of Service Over Self (SOS), a Christian ministry providing home repair and leadership development in three of Memphis’s most underserved neighborhoods. He is a contributor to the 2016 book, Gospel Centered Youth Ministry: A Practical Guide published by Crossway. Philip, his wife Kelsea and their three kids are residents of Binghampton, one of SOS’s partner neighborhoods. He loves ice cream, running and riding his bike really early in the morning (so he can justify eating more ice cream), and he is an unashamed choir nerd.
