Longtime NEWSBOYS bassist PHIL JOEL recently announced that he will part ways with the band after 12 1/2 years to pursue the ministry DELIBERATEPEOPLE he and wife HEATHER founded in 2004.
"As big of a decision as it may seem, it is very clear to HEATHER and I that the Lord has called us into this new season,” says JOEL. “We are very excited about the future and the things the Lord has set before us to do in 2007. We wish the guys all the best and pray the Lord’s blessing on each of them and their families.”
JOEL is also finishing up a new children’s project, “deliberateKids,” that will release this SPRING through INDELIBLE CREATIVE GROUP.
