Rev. Philip McCullough has been ‘installed’ as the new Minister of Third Portglenone Presbyterian Church
Originally from Kells, Philip previously occupied the pulpits at Ballyroney and Drumlea, near Banbridge, for six-and-a-half years.
He is married to Amanda and the couple have two grown-up children, Connor and Craig and are proud grandparents to Eva-Lily.
Revealing a little of his personal testimony to The Ballymena Times, Philip said: “I was converted as a teenager under the ministry of Rev. Leslie Casement at Kells Presbyterian Church.
“I was blessed with good preaching from Leslie Casement, Stafford Carson and Brian Boyd,” he added.
Philip was a member of the Kirk Session in Kells and served in many organisations and committees.
Enrolling at Union Theological College in 2004, Philip worked as a sales representative for a local oil company.
Looking ahead to his new ‘charge’ following his installation on Friday evening, Philip said: “We are excited to be here and trusting God for the future.
Outside Church, Philip enjoys vintage tractors and spending time with his family.
