Phil Pringle’s Facebook info reveals a bit about himself. We will be relying on this information for future articles in regards who he likes being associated with and the origins of his church. Readers will learn later how Phil Pringle did not start C3 Church in Australia but actually failed in his attempt to start a church in Sydney. Instead, he was trusted to a church which he later overtook that caused that church to split.

However, Phil Pringle’s biography on Facebook reads:

“Phil Pringle is the Founder and President of C3 Church International, a global movement of over 240 churches, and the Senior Minister of C3 Church in Sydney Australia. Phil and his wife, Christine, started C3 Church in 1980 and it is now one of the fastest growing, exciting and powerful churches in Australia. An entire global movement of vibrant churches has been birthed as a result of Phil’s lead…ership and vision as he maintains an uncompromised passion to see cities changed by a contemporary, relevant and anointed church. Phil’s dynamic and relevant preaching has made him a much sought after speaker in both Christian and secular contexts, particularly in the areas of faith, leadership, ministry of the Holy Spirit, church building and kingdom principles of finance and giving.

My wife, Chris and I, with the kids and some good friends came to Sydney from New Zealand in 1980 to start a church. We had 13 people at our first service but the congregation grew rapidly and we moved buildings, bought land and built a school. We began planting churches around Sydney, then Australia, then the world; we now have close to 300 congregations in our movement. Our 2020 Vision is to plant and grow 1000 churches and we’re on target to meet this!

We’ve started C3 College for Ministry, Creative Arts and Counselling, as well as a television program and Oxford Falls Grammar School, all on around 25 acres at Oxford Falls.

I’ve always been passionate about the arts playing a major role in church to make her contemporary and relevant to the current world. Our Creative Arts stream has developed and graduated thousands of musicians, worship leaders, song writers, graphic artists, dancers, actors and film makers. I myself paint and exhibit around the world. I also love to write, so I’ve mixed these two elements together in books like Inspired to Pray, But God and 24 Hours That Saved The World – The Gospel of John in Art. My other books include Faith, Moving in the Spirit, Leadership Excellence, Financial Excellence, Leadership Files and You the Leader.

My great love is the local church. I believe she is the hope of our world today. When she functions in the power of the Holy Spirit and lives on the Word she will thrive. See you in Church!” – Phil Pringle, Biography, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Phil-Pringle/181344135208983?v=info. (Accessed 03/12/2011)

Ministers that Pringle likes and often endorses in his ministry are David Yonngi Cho, Kenneth Hagin, Hillsong, Kong Hee and his City Harvest Church, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, John Bevere, TD Jakes, Bill Johnson and Marcos Witt. There are extensive articles written on these problematic ‘Christian’ ministers. Later articles will check their doctrines, ministries and practices. It is important to warn anyone about the false Christian TD Jakes (who denies the foundational trinity doctrine to the Christian faith) who Pringle endorses. Not to mention Kenneth Hagin and Kong Hee known worldwide for the plagiarism of other people’s material, who Phil Pringle also endorses. More articles will be written on these people as time goes on.
