About Me

Phil Metzger

After serving two decades as a missionary and church planter in Hungary, Phil is now back in Southern California where he is the lead pastor of Calvary San Diego. While in Hungary, Phil was the lead pastor of Calvary Chapel Budapest as well as the ministry director of Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe. 

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Phil oversees Calvary Church plants throughout Eastern Europe, Ethiopia, and Nigeria. His heart and ministry is focused on making disciples and seeing the church impact the world for Christ. He would love to see more and more churches planted in order to bring the Word of God to the lost.
Phil and his wife Joy have four beautiful children: Niki (married to husband Rio), Karina (married to husband Jamie), Judah and Hannah. Phil and Joy have one grandson, Ezra James.

Crossing Cultures

Crossing Cultures is focused on helping Christians learn how to connect to those who may live, believe or think differently than they do.
