Phil Blount

Media Director

I’ve been around Eastwood for many years, beginning back in the nineties when I worked as an Audio Engineer, and one of my jobs was to run sound for Eastwood services and events. That led me to attending, singing in the choir, and occasionally filling in as a worship leader. Over the past 25 years, my wife, 3 kids and I have served in several churches, but no matter where we have served, we have always considered Eastwood as a part of our family! I’m thrilled to be serving as Media Director now, and am excited about what God is doing here!
