Michael Phillips is passionate about helping people live a better life. His determination to drive social change with lasting transformational benefits to society, has led Phillips to become an innovator and thought leader in social entrepreneurship and education. He is the founder of LifePrep and currently serves as the Chief Engagement and Fulfillment Officer for the TD Jakes Foundation.

As an author and inspirational speaker, Phillips has become a champion for children and families around the world. He is the Chairman of 50CAN and serves as a board member of KuriosEd.

Built in an old ramshackle school, the church has a 3,000-member congregation and has been instrumental in helping to revitalize the formerly blighted neighborhood. Under Phillips’ stewardship, Kingdom Life has grown into a thriving faith community, brimming with passion for social justice.
