Hi my name is Phil Ison and I am one of the new Elders at River Valley church.
My wife Sandy and I have been in the valley for 33 years, we have 2 daughters
Kaylee and Roseanne also 2 grandchildren and son-in-law, Pete.
I recently retired from the Yarra Rangers Council where I worked for 30 years.
Prior to that Sandy and I were house parents for 5 Aboriginal children in Western Australia.
With God’s help and strength I hope to be a good asset/ Elder for RVC.
Philippians 4: 13
I can do everything through him who gives me strength
I was bought up in a Christian home, but it wasn’t until later life that my relationship with the Lord was deeply rooted.
I love the Lord with all my heart, and I am sold on the fact that He is the way to a complete and fulfilled life
as has been my experience for many years now.
I have also been a recipient of His healing hand and amazing grace from a past that was marred by pain but also very bad choices.
I have only been living in the Valley since May 2017 but adore living where I am surrounded by the amazing beauty of God’s Creation.
I am truly blessed to call River Valley Church my family.
To serve on the Eldership was never something I gave any thought to in the past but, in saying that I feel honoured that the
Lord has called me to serve in this way.
I also love community so look forward to developing more relationships with the Valley.
