Phil Moore - Music Minister
I have been on staff at Northside Baptist since August 2006, and thank God every day for bringing me here. I attended Howard Payne University where I met my wife, Kelly. We have two daughters, Lauren Venable and Alyssa Escamilla, and two sons-in-law, James Venable and Kevin Escamilla, both of which are youth ministers. Best of all, we have one super grandson, MAV.  After graduating, I taught in public schools as a band director for 8 years. While teaching, Kelly and I were very active in our church. I was a deacon, a Sunday School teacher, and a choir member. After 8 years of teaching, I felt God’s calling to full time ministry. I then went to Southwestern Seminary and earned a Masters degree in Music, and have been serving in churches since 1989. In my spare time, I enjoy camping with family, playing racquetball, playing golf, and doing home improvement projects. Two things about me that surprise some people: I really don't listen to a lot of music during my spare time and I own and can ride a unicycle.
