Philip De Courcy

Philip is the Senior Pastor of Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills, California and teacher on the daily media program, Know the Truth – heard on more than 600 radio stations in the US, as well as on a variety of digital platforms.

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland to Christian parents who instilled in him a love for the Lord, Philip trusted Christ as his Savior, as a teenager. But while growing up in a neighborhood where civil tension was commonplace, many of Philip’s friends became involved in acts of terrorism. As a result, Philip served as a reserve police officer in the Royal Ulster Constabulary in North Belfast. During that six-year period, although some of Philip’s comrades were injured and even killed, he was unharmed. To this day, Philip believes God used this faith-building season to prepare him for pastoral ministry.

After ministerial training, Philip spent six years shepherding a congregation in suburban Belfast, then relocated his family to the US, where he pastored churches in Southern California and central Ohio. In 2007, Philip began his current ministry as Senior Pastor at Kindred.

He has been the featured speaker at Super Bowls, the NCAA Final Four Chapel, the Pentagon with senior military officers, as well as at the Promise Keepers and FamilyLife marriage conferences. And now, as President and Founder of Beyond Our Generation, Crawford is committed to encouraging, mentoring, and helping to shape the next generation of Christian leaders.

He has been a church planter, served twenty-seven years with Cru (or, Campus Crusade for Christ) and served as Senior Pastor of Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell. Crawford is the author of nine books, hosts two national radio programs and serves on several boards including Cru, FamilyLife and Chick-fil-A.

David Pollack

As a defensive end at the University of Georgia, David was the only Bulldog – besides Herschel Walker – to be named a three-time, first-team All-American. David’s collegiate accolades include:
• SEC Player of the Year honors, 2002, 2004
• First-team All-SEC, 2002-04
• 2003 and 2004 Ted Hendricks Award
• 2004 Chuck Bednarik Award, the Lombardi Award, the Lott Trophy and SEC Defensive Player of the Year
• 2005 Outback Bowl MVP
• And his 36 sacks at UGA, remain a school record

In the NFL draft, David was a first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, selected 17th overall. However, his career was cut short after breaking a cervical vertebra in the second game of his second season. Prior to the 2008 season, the Bengals announced Pollack’s retirement and David transitioned to sportscasting, co-hosting a talk-radio show on 790 The Zone in Atlanta. In 2009, David joined ESPN, contributing to several of the network’s programs, including ESPN's College GameDay, College Football Live, SportsCenter, college bowl and playoff games, and the National Championship.

David, his wife and two children, launched The Pollack Family Foundation in 2016, with a current focus on Faith, Family, Community. In 2020, David was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, then shortly after – along with his pastor – David launched the Family Goals Podcast in 2021 with a focus on Faith, Family, Sports and More.

Last year, David was inducted into the Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame’s inaugural class. He is originally from Snellville.
