Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

philguitarPhil grew up in Melbourne, Australia, in a home where both parents were involved in full time Evangelistic Ministry. Phil’s father, Joseph Plotnek, a Jewish believer in Jesus and evangelist from Birmingham, UK, married Noelene, an Australian missionary to the Aboriginal people in Sydney’s La Perouse. As a missionary family they traveled throughout Australia and the UK. Some people best remember Phil’s father for his radio ministry in Melbourne throughout the 60’s and 70’s and his autobiography, “This Poor Man Cried”.

Since 1984, Phil attended Music College, graduated from Bible College with a Bachelor Degree in Biblical Studies, and completed a Diploma in Teaching. He has worked extensively in Ministry within the Christian community, leaving his Jewish heritage dormant until 2002.

In January 2002, Philip heard a clear call from God to resign from his position as Pastor of Creative Ministries in a vibrant church based ministry in Melbourne’s Bayside Region. Philip took this step of faith in blind obedience. The events that followed immediately confirmed God's call in extraordinary ways. God’s timing is perfect. Phil quickly discovered the new ministry God was calling him to. It marked twenty five years after his father’s death when Phil heard God’s call to Jewish evangelism and he has yielded fully to this mission. Now following in his father’s footsteps and having returned to his Jewish roots, he has joined the staff of Celebrate Messiah Australia to carry on this vital ministry.

John 8:31
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
