Phil Pringle, along with his wife Chris, founded C3 Church Global, a movement of 440 churches in 60 countries with a reach of 80,000 people worldwide.
Hailing from New Zealand, Phil and Chris left the long white cloud in 1980 with their kids and a few good friends to plant the first Christian City Church – as it was known back then – on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. They had come from a radical conversion to Christianity; living in a hippie commune, Phil and Chris happened upon a small Pentecostal church where they were radically saved and set free. Marrying soon after, Phil and Chris leaped into ministry, sharing the gospel with everyone they encountered.
Phil Pringle has been an advocate for reviving the arts in ministry. Having studied Fine Arts at University, Phil is known for his artwork, sculptures and live paintings. Bringing that passion to the next generation, the Pringle’s began a Creative Ministry school that continues to grow each year, with streams ranging from vocals to screen production, teaching practical tools in ministry and the arts. The C3 Church Oxford Falls campus also holds a state of the art TV Studio that brings Phil’s teachings via the program “Your Best Life” to channels streaming globally.
Although in high demand as a key communicator on faith and church planting, Phil’s great love is the local church and winning Sydney to Christ. He is committed to developing leaders who can spread the vision and plant churches that are the hope of the world, to see the lost saved and the power of the Holy Spirit revealed.
