Re: Randy Philips - Promiseland, Austin, TX

I don't go there but have visited a couple of times when in Austin and really enjoyed it. It is not a traditional Pentecostal church though so some won't like it.

Randy is a very good teacher / preacher but he is not the typical Pentecostal snorting and yelling red in the face kind.

it is a very laid back and modern type service with contemporary music and the preacher not in a suit at least some if not all of the time.

If your friend prefers a progressive UPC church then Rex Johnson's is not too far away.

Oh, and Randy's church is Promiseland West as opposed to the original Promiseland Church in East Austin pastored by his father Kenneth Phillips.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Re: Randy Philips - Promiseland, Austin, TX

Have him check out Apostolic Lighthouse UPC in Georgetown (just outside Austin) . Bro Donnie Huslage is pastor there. He isn't a "name" but he is a good pastor and a good guy.

It is a traditional UPC church but they don't beat people up over the outward stuff, they don't play head games, they have a solid home group ministry, I give them 100% endorsement. I don't do that much.

Georgetown is a little more than "right outside Austin"!!!! When you leave Austin first you go through Pflugerville, then Round Rock and then you finally get to Georgetown.
