The Council of the Protestant Truth Society is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Director of Ministry.
The Rev. Philip Tait joined the Society from 1 February 2015, and brings with him years of experience in ministry, management and publishing.
Over the years, Philip has been involved with the work of a number of Christian organizations, including the Sovereign Grace Union, the Strict Baptist Trust and Pension Fund, and the Association of Grace Baptist Churches. He is currently a member of the Committees of Grace Publications Trust and the Grace Baptist Assembly. He has written numerous magazine articles and reviews, and is the part-author of Learning to be Happy and the author of The Real Thing? (both Grace Publications Trust).
Philip obtained a degree in English Language and Literature at the University of Southampton. He then joined the civil service, working in the Department of Health and Social Security.
He trained for the Christian Ministry on the Theological Training Course of the Evangelical Movement of Wales. In 1989 he became minister of St John’s Wood Road Baptist Church, London. In 2004 he become minister of Hardwick Baptist Church, Stockton-on-Tees. He left the pastorate in Stockton at the end of January to take up his new post with the Society.
Both the churches where he served as minister enjoyed good relationships with the Protestant Truth Society, and he is looking forward to carrying that relationship forward by working for the Society.
Churches and fellowships wishing to extend Philip an invitation to speak at a midweek or Sunday meeting, on behalf of the Protestant Truth Society, may contact him through the Fleet Street office.
