Phil and Geri Ann Privette have been ministers of the gospel for nearly 40 years. Starting out as Children’s Pastors at Victory Life Church in Hampton, Virginia in 1985, Phil and Geri Ann were mentored in every office of the ministry by Phil’s parents and pastors, Phillip and Barbara Privette...
Phil Privette, Jr.
Growing up in a household of faith, Phil learned early that the miraculous could be commonplace. Seeing his brother raised from the dead and made whole at the age of nine through the faith of his father; experiencing his own miraculous recovery from an accident at age 12; healed of a life-threatening lung disease at age 25, Phil eventually moved into the realm of the supernatural in his own revival meetings which he began while serving as Youth Pastor at VLC. Because signs and wonders were evident in his ministry, he became known as the “Man of Fire” in Peru, and has held Fresh Fire Revivals ever since.
Having attended, graduated and received ordination from RHEMA Bible Training Center in 1994, Phil traveled to specific Holy Ghost meetings over a period of 10 years to personally assist the late Kenneth E. Hagin and was privileged to sit at his feet and learn from the man of God.
Phil and Geri Ann founded Turning Point International Ministries in 2010. Since then, the ministry has grown to a crusade team of 6, which includes his oldest daughter, Tiffany, as music director. His ministerial opportunities have taken him to every corner of the United States as well as to England, Mexico, Peru, India, and Africa. Phil has three children and 3 grandchildren.
Geri Ann Privette
Also growing up in a spiritually-alive environment, Geri Ann learned faith for healing at the young age of 12 when she prayed over herself and watched a tumor on her foot disappear. Miracles became commonplace as her parents and the ministries of Oral Roberts and Kathryn Kuhlman taught her to “expect a miracle”. Traveling some years later with Impact Productions, a mime and dance company from Oklahoma, she continued her training in faith as her prayers for healing witnessed the growth and extension of a young girl’s leg.
Serving beside her husband in the early revival meetings strengthened their purpose to bring the power and anointing of God to their generation. While at Victory Life Church, Geri Ann served as Accounts Director, Bible School Instructor, Missionettes Coordinator and Arts Department Director. Her love of worship became a catalyst for the establishment of a professional dance company, Throne Room Arts. Geri Ann continues to share her passion for worship and the arts through personal instruction and teaching.
Geri Ann's love for writing led to her first inspirational book, Whispers of Wisdom, available through AuthorHouse and Amazon. Her and Phil now have their own publishing company, Privette Publishing, and have written 6 books.
Geri Ann's passion for the Word allows her to teach alongside her husband.
Being raised in a Christian home, Tiffany realized early that ministry was her heart’s cry. Throughout the middle and high school years, she served on the Victory Life youth praise and worship team, eventually becoming the lead vocalist and team leader. Studying music at Liberty University solidified her hunger for worship and ministry yet she decided to return to VLC to continue her spiritual training. While there, Tiffany began operating in the office of music instructor, teaching piano to children ages 4 to 14, while also mentoring teens in their walk with God.
In 2009, Tiffany’s parents left Virginia for Weston, FL, to embark on a new phase of ministry. Serving as Music Director for Turning Point Church for a season eventually led her back to VA for the full-time position of Minister of Music at her home church, Victory Life, until 2019.
Tiffany is excited to share a love of music and worship and is instrumental to the ministry as she assists her parents in the administration, resources and media of TPIM. She proudly leads the team as they mentor youth and other music ministers through Youth Meetings and Worship Workshops. Tiffany's daughter, Addison, is privileged to travel with the crusade team and grow in an atmosphere of faith.
