Sway Phal, Director of STUDENT MINISTRY
Sway loves hanging out with teens, engaging in activities and games, and connecting with them about life and Jesus. He believes that Jesus is the answer and hope that today's generation and culture need for a positive and purposeful life. Sway enjoys spending time with his family, playing music, sports, working on house projects, and tinkering with technology.
Sway grew up in Oakland, CA and moved north to the Sacramento area in 2005 to attend William Jessup University. After graduating in 2009 with a double major in Bible & Theology and Worship & Music, he came to work with the Teen Ministry at Good Shepherd in 2010.
In the summer of 2011, Sway left to pursue overseas missions and other ministry opportunities. He returned to the Sacramento area in the summer of 2013 with his then fiance Sara. The two married in 2014 and now have a son named Elijah. Sway has been serving at Good Shepherd since he returned and is actively involved in both Teen Ministry and Outreach. Alongside his wife Sara, the two have a passion for overseas missions and anti-trafficking.
