Through Our Windows


Through Our Windows (2000)

The Bible tells us to give honor to whom honor is due and so I want to thank some very key people that God has used in my life to make this recording possible. First of all, I want to thank Wayne Scott Farley for the encouragement to begin another recording and to utilize new recording technology available to the common musician. Secondly, I want to thank my brother-in-law, Neal Wimbiscus, who went the second mile in helping me set up, maintain and upgrade a PC recording studio. I am truly indebted to him for his technical support in this new venture.

Last, but not least, I want to thank my good friend, John Vaeth, not only for his musicianship on bass and mandolin, but also for his never ending support and encouragement. And for all those who would think it sacrilege not to mention the obvious, I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and the gift He has given me in my wife Mary and my daughter Elisabeth who both graciously endured with me through this consuming work.


Who is Phillip Telfer? What is the core of my identity? I’m a child of God and a disciple of Jesus Christ. What you do is not as important as who you are. But in case you’re wondering about what I do, here you go…

Husband & Father: Mary and I have been married for 32 years and blessed with 4 children, one fantastic son-in-law, and three precious grandchildren.

Minister: I serve as a pastor by day (and night) and I’m the founder and director of the nonprofit ministry Media Talk 101

Coffee Nut: When I’m not serving the flock, I’m serving good, home roasted coffee to family and friends.

Woodworker: Another hobby that has “turned” into a small family business is woodturning. Working with wood a little bit each week keeps me sane in this big world of personalities.

Film Festival Director: Since that didn’t seem like enough on my plate I also started the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild.

Author: When there’s time to spare, I love to take  a Pilot G2 gel pen and a pad of paper and write! I used to pour a lot of creative writing energy into music, and now that has shifted to the fun of writing a novel.

Musician: I got my start in ministry as a singer/songwriter. It’s been over a decade since I last recorded any music but be on the lookout for new music in 2023 on your favorite streaming service.
