After pastorates in Alaska and Florida and a 22-year Army Chaplain career, Phil Conner came to Golden Gate Seminary in 2009 to head the Doctor of Ministry program.

Prior to his three-year leadership position as Director of the Doctor of Ministry program, he had numerous opportunities for ministry and leadership training, including a Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, three years as chaplain for an Army addiction treatment facility, and three years as the Curriculum Developer, for Pastoral Ministry Training at the Army Medical Department Center and School (AMEDDCS). He taught Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) courses throughout the United States, Germany, and Guam for Crisis Responders in the Army, Navy, Air Force, civilian agencies, and Baptist groups.

Phil continues to develop his chaplain ministry resources and skills participating in CISM training, SBC Disaster Relief training, and CPE training. He taught Baptist Disaster Relief Chaplain training and was a presenter at the 2011 Warrior Transition (Wounded Warrior) Unit Chaplain Training Conference, AMEDDCS. He is a Board Certified Clinical Chaplain with the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy.

The opportunity to lead the Chaplain Concentration at Golden Gate unites his interest in teaching, developing chaplains, and promoting on-site pastoral care to those in need.

Phil is married to Dee. They have two children, Daniel, married to Hannah, and Diana, married to Ben, and two grandchildren, Daniel’s daughter, Emma, and Diana’s daughter, Annabelle. One priority is visiting their families in Florida, New York, Colorado, and California’s Mojave Desert. When possible, Phil enjoys water sports, a motorcycle, and an antique car.
