In September Phil also had the chance to spend a day with Pastor Guarionex and the fellowship of churches for which he provides leadership. Phil was invited to share on the topic of the importance of servant leadership and mentoring the next generation of leadership. Pastor Guarionex had attended some of the first leadership seminars that Phil taught in DR. and was also the motivating force behind inviting him as the plenary speaker at the Evangelical Leadership Conference in September. This is one of the fellowships/denominations that Carlos and his team continues to serve with leadership training and materials as they are trying to bring about a change in their values and leadership culture. Their goal is to release the next generation into leadership so that they will continue to be relevant witnesses within their culture and community.
