Teacher Philip Michael grew up in Brooklyn, NY. His parents reared he and an older brother. He was very energetic, he loved acting and horseback riding. It was through the ministry of Pastor Clifton Smith, Jr., that a fire was ignited in him, and he surrendered his life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He became a faithful member of Miracle Temple Church. He would listen intently to the teachings of Pastor Clifton and began to see himself changing. He took a more active role, assisting with set up of equipment as the pastor continued to travel in revivals. He later became Pastor Clifton’s armor bearer. Teacher was ordained as Minister of Education in 2008. He can be heard weekly teaching in our School of Ministry.
