Rev. Rodney Brooks

Minister of Music, First Baptist Church, Atlanta, GA

“Phil Cross is among the finest gospel songwriters and arrangers of our day!  I’ve used Phil’s music throughout my ministry and it has never failed to reach the “heart” of our listeners.  In recent years, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work alongside Phil with his newest vision, “Stories & Songs”. Once again, Phil has not lost the passion for communicating the gospel by means of allowing some of our most treasured songwriters to share the inspiration behind their lyrics.  Phil has become a beloved friend of First Baptist Church of Atlanta through his giftedness as a host, songwriter, singer and motivator.  His musical excellence is exceeded only by his desire to serve God with everything in him”.

“I am grateful for a minister such as Phil Cross who keeps the song of the church centered on God’s Word.  Over the years he has provided countless songs that feed our spirit and proclaim the story of grace, and I believe today he is writing his best songs.  What a blessing to us and a praise to God that these anthems and choruses are so beautifully crafted.  God has gifted him with a tremendous voice, a skill for artful composition, and a heart for the church.  Phil Cross is a blessing to young and old, and his music is anointed with the power to uplift, unite, and evangelize!”
