Guest Speaker:

Phil Hernandez

Phil Hernandez, founder and pastor of In The Light Ministries (ITLM), an inner-city ministry which began in 1991. Its inception was humble and organic, a living room on the Northwest side of Lancaster City was where it all began. 

One distinction of ITLM was its true diversity. Growth was rapid, and several facilities were rented until a church building was purchased in the year 2000. Here, this ministry grew beyond its capacity and another facility was sovereignly provided in 2005, “The Grace Center of Hope”. This is where ITLM continues to serve as a light to its community.

Pastor Phil has distinguished himself as a pillar in the Lancaster community. In 2001, a Mayoral decree declared October 14th, Phil and Yvonne Hernandez Day in Lancaster City. He has also received multiple recognitions for his service by other organizations in Lancaster and abroad. His Humanitarian contributions were recently recognized by The Water Street Mission, and he was presented with their Oak of Righteousness award. Phil Hernandez has been mentoring and guiding lives in the Lancaster community since 1983. His reputation precedes him as he still continues to share a heart of love wherever he’s led. He has served as a Chaplain to Tyson Foods Corporation and been a Counselor, Coach, Program Director, and Pastor, but his greatest privilege is to be called a Friend.

Today, he carries an apostolic mantle, as in 1983, he was divinely mandated to move to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Details of Apostle Phil Hernandez’ conversion can be viewed at as CBN the 700 Club did a story on his conversion. This mantle has been affirmed by the over 30 churches he has helped to plant and the over 90 licenses issued under ITLM’s oversight. His travels and impact have reached more than 45 nations of the world. He serves on several boards and is asked to speak nationally and internationally on leadership and other church systems development. He serves as a consultant to several churches on healthy transitions, pastoral care, and building healthy ministries. Apostle Phil entered the entertainment industry as a Life Coach to a record label executive and several of its artists. Currently, a prompting from the Lord permeated his heart for the mission fields of Costa Rica. There, he and his wife, Yvonne, relocated for a years’ undertaking. In addition to this call, they are laboring to build a church home in Nicaragua for a widow whose husband once pastored a church there.

In conclusion, much more can be said about Phil Hernandez, but none truly means as much to him than to be known as a man after God’s heart. Phil Hernandez is a lover of God and a lover of people. Amen.
