Meet the Phippens
Seth is the 4th of 12 in his family and grew up in upstate New York on a dairy farm. Growing up he knew that God wanted him to be involved in advancing the Gospel. When he was 15 he went on his first missions trip with Teen Missions. After that summer he knew God wanted him to attend the Teen Missions Bible school.
Emily is 4th of 10 in her family and grew up in northern Minnesota. She also had a heart for missions from a very young age. She came on her first missions trip with Teen Missions in 2010 and came to the Bible school the same year that Seth did.
We got married on October 6th, 2012, after that, we spent 9 months in Malawi, Africa doing our internship with Teen Missions and joined staff shortly after that. We are blessed to have a son, James Lincoln born September 19, 2014, and a daughter Lauren Noel born June 2, 2016. We now are serving as staff with Teen Missions in Malawi at the base in Chipoka. Seth is the country coordinator and Emily does all she can to help with the Teen Missions office and take care of the kids and make where they live the best home for everyone.
Health and safety
Wisdom to raise James
A passion for the lost
Strength for each day
