Dr. Phillip Kayser is a pastor, author, and counselor with a focus on detailed biblical scholarship and the international church. He’s passionate about seeing Scripture’s comprehensive blueprints applied to business, art, education, science, economics, marketing, health, counseling, and every other area of life.

Phil Kayser personally studied under Greg Bahnsen, Gordon Clark, John Frame, and Jay Adams, and has an M.Div from Westminster Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Whitefield Theological Seminary. He serves on the board of The Bahnsen Project, as Professor of Ethics at Whitefield Theological Seminary, and on the board of the Pickering Foundation of Biblical Preservation (an evangelical think-tank preserving the text of Scripture).

Phil was raised in Ethiopia, the son of missionary parents who spent 30 years in the field with SIM International, and saw the Word of God transform every area of Ethiopian pagan culture. Ever since he's had a passion for seeing the transformational gospel and God's biblical blueprints for life taken to the ends of the earth. For years he travelled to restricted countries to coach church planters, mentor students, and teach theology. He has helped plant five churches and currently serves as Senior Pastor of Dominion Covenant Church in Omaha, NE, focusing his preaching on careful exegesis and practical application. He and his wife, Kathy, have five married children who love the Lord, and fifteen grandchildren.

Phil has some big projects in the works on Revelation, leadership, hermeneutics, counseling, spiritual warfare, ethics, and more—and most importantly, his Great Axioms Project, which explores the Biblical axioms of math, geometry, logic, and of 40+ other disciplines in order to root our educational curriculum more radically in the Scriptures than has ever been done before.
