Well-Known National Speaker
Vision Forum Ministries – www.visionforumministries.org
Doug Phillips graduated from George Mason School of Law and then served for six years at the Home School Legal Defense Association in multiple capacities including staff attorney and Director of the National Center for Home Education. In the Fall of 1998, Doug and his wife Beall founded The Vision Forum, Inc. in San Antonio, Texas, devoted to producing books and tapes to help build up Christian families. Later, they founded Vision Forum Ministries (non-profit 501[c]3), a ministry designed to communicate a vision for the restoration of the Christian family and the rebuilding of culture for the glory of God. Much of Doug’s time is spent teaching with the hope to spur on Christian manhood and sacrificial fatherhood, and to see dads turn their hearts to their wives and children. Doug has appeared on numerous radio and television shows and has spoken at more than 100 home school conferences in 42 states. The greatest joys in Doug’s life are his wife Beall and the eight children that God has graciously given to them: Joshua, Justice, Liberty, Jubilee, Faith Evangeline, Honor, Providence, and Virginia Hope. May the Lord’s name be blessed forever!
