Philip Chryst

Pastor Philip Chryst has been the Pastor of Warren’s Grove since 2006. He is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, but at the age of 9 his family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. When Philip graduated from East Mecklenburg High School in 1993 he then moved to Wilmington, North Carolina. He graduated from UNC-Wilmington in 1999, majoring in Communication Studies with a minor in Philosophy. In October of 1999 Philip married the former DeAnne Ace from Raleigh, NC. In 2000 Philip began working for S&D Coffee Inc. as a sales representative. After 6 years God called him into full-time ministry. In July of 2005 Philip was invited to be on staff, at Faith Harbor United Methodist Church in Surf City, NC, as the Minister of Discipleship. After serving at Faith Harbor for a year, Bishop Alfred Gwinn assigned him to Warren’s Grove in Roxboro, NC. In conjunction with that he also began studying at Duke Divinity School in the fall of 2006. While working to get his Master of Divinity degree Philip was the Pastor at Warren’s Grove and then was reassigned to Warren’s Grove after completing his seminary training. Philip and DeAnne have four children: Peter, Emma, Ryan and Nathan. They are a Home School family and they love hiking, skiing, exploring, swimming, and canoeing. They have come to fall in love with Roxboro and thoroughly enjoy Hyco Lake, Huck Sansbury Park, American Hero Restaurant, Church Softball and Duke Basketball.
