Pastor Phil Allen
Although he first felt a call to ministry in college, Philip took a detour into the practice of law. He earned a Juris Doctorate from Northern Illinois University College of Law. He then practiced law briefly in Janesville, WI, with the Nowlan “&” Mouat Law Firm. During this time, though, God reasserted His call on Philip’s life and he left the law practice and joined God in the process of planting Daystar. Philip has since earned his Doctor of Ministry degree pursuing course work both at Trinity International University in Illinois and Trinity College of the Bible in Indiana.
Philip is passionate about genuinely understanding and teaching God’s Word and practically applying the truth to our everyday lives. He loves to laugh and believes that we should take God very seriously, but maintain a lighter view of ourselves. He has found that God offers wisdom, hope and joy for everyday life as well as an eternal life with Him. Philip loves reading, watching football, riding his bike, and spending time with his wife, Jean, and daughter, Elizabeth.
Jean has a vocal performance and education major from Lawrence University. And has been leading worship for nearly 20 years now! Jean is married to Pastor Phil and they have one daughter, Elizabeth.
Josh Barker is Daystar’s ministry intern. He assists with worship and youth group and is pursuing his music degree at UW-Whitewater.
