Education is a key to unlocking the grip that fear and ignorance have on our world. Phillips offers theological education dedicated to learning the way of Jesus in order to cultivate vital communities, vital conversations, and the public good.  Our mission is about more than educating clergy.

From our InterReligious Understanding Program available to the Tulsa Metro Area, to our online degree programs with a global reach… from our online Minister Training Courses to Sunday school classes taught in congregations across the region… PhillipsFest will generate funds to ensure that the important work done at Phillips continues. We are creating space where people who are committed to faith and social justice can come together, be re-energized and inspired to engage the world.

All benefits cost money. PhillipsFest is no different. The budget for PhillipsFest 2016 is $46,000. We are working hard to keep costs as low as possible, while at the same time, creating an event that will impress those people new to the Phillips community and instill pride in our friends who already know us.  Any sponsorships we receive will help ensure the inaugural PhillipsFest is a smashing success.
