Phil Jeffery, Worship Pastor
Phil retired as a professional musician, but never retired from playing and teaching music for the Lord. For over 30 years he toured, recorded, produced and played professionally. From 1991 to 1996, Phil was the General Manager of Café Records based in Medford, Oregon until he entered full-time ministry as one of the founding pastors of Table Rock Fellowship in Medford in 1997. During this time, he was appointed Administrative Pastor while continuing his music worship ministry.
The Lord later moved Phil to the Coos Bay area where he again assumed the task of Administrative Pastor at a local area church and later as a Senior Pastor. Through it all, Phil never ceased worshiping God through music.
In the midst of Phil scheduling worship teams, teaching students, and a score of other tasks he gladly fulfills, you can find him loving God and His people. It is not unusual to see Phil with his arm around someone in prayer and fellowship with all sincerity of encouragement. You can also find Phil talking about his son Will, a U.S. Army soldier stationed in Miami, Florida, or going camping, hiking, fishing and the like with his twelve year old son Max.
Although Phil has been on staff since 2017, he has been involved in the music ministry here at Shoreline since 2012 and serves as a youth leader as well.
