Luther, Phillip & Kay

Acct # 14485


After 33 years in university ministry in Minnesota and South Carolina, Phillip and Kay sensed God redirecting them to serve overseas through a national church in Athens, Greece. Since 2012, they have been directly involved in the Athens City Initiative, a movement led by Pastor Panagiotis Kantartzis to plant churches with a redemptive presence throughout Athens. Phillip’s role involves discipleship, teaching, preaching, and working with a Greek church planter to develop the vision of the first church plant in Glyfada.


Kay has a heart for ministry through hospitality, mentoring women, and reaching out to victims of human trafficking through a local Christian NGO in Athens. The refugee crisis has challenged the national believers to continually adapt their efforts in compassion and mercy to those seeking asylum in Europe. Phillip and Kay served in a refugee camp, and coordinated the efforts of numerous teams to help meet needs of refugees.


In partnership with Pastor Kantartzis, Phillip is helping to develop other ministries, including a Business as Mission initiative and a series of consultations for church planters working in Eastern Orthodox contexts through Europe. Phillip serves as MTW Team Leader in Athens, and they are praying for others to be called to serve humbly alongside their Greek partners for the glory of Christ in the city of Athens. 


Phillip graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1975 (B.S. in physics) and Reformed Theological Seminary in 2007 (M.Div). When he and Kay met, she was working at Columbia Bible College, Columbia, S.C.
