Mr. Cameron Phillips
They call me, Mr. Cameron.
I graduated from ECS in 2008 and since then have led quite an extraordinary adventure of a life! Through stepping out in absolute Faith, God has led me to RIGHT BACK where I started. I believe he has a big plan for my life not only on campus, but off as well! Things that make me happy would include encouraging others. I LOVE THAT! I love writing worship music, and PLAYING worship music. I am the lead guitarist for The Center worship team. I love to fish, play videos games, and watch my shows. Other than that, I love communicating to children on their level. I seem to have a knack-for-that.
Proverbs 3:5-6(NKJV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He shall direct your paths.
