How has our ministry lasted 25 years, a quarter of a century?..
As the son of a bishop, Prophet Phillip E. Owens could no more deny his calling as a prophet no more than the prodigal son could deny his rich heritage. This native of Lansing, Michigan hails from a background of bishops, elders, evangelists, and teachers-- but hid from him until the appointed time was the calling God had ordained for him. As a Michigan State University Computer Programmer, introduction to his destiny began while attending a COGIC conference in Dallas, Texas. It was in Dallas that he met and later married a young missionary from Gary, Indiana, now Prophetess Patricia A. Owens, the one God told him would go all the way with him. Destiny had met destiny.
After accepting his call into ministry, Prophet and Prophetess Owens served faithfully in their local church and community for over 11 years-- a powerful deliverance ministry underscored by sound doctrine. While serving as Chaplain of the Ingham County Juvenile Home, as Registrar for the C. H. Mason Bible College and as Campus Minister at Michigan State University hundreds were brought to Christ. As Prophet Owens ministered around the state and surrounding states it was evident he was endowed with a powerful prophetic gift which could no longer be denied. Inevitably, in 1978 he accepted his call to the Office of Prophet. In June 1988 in obeying a mandate from God, Prophet and Prophetess Owens founded Immanuel's Temple Community Church in Lansing, Michigan, and forged an army of nondenominational interracial believers for the work of the ministry. Immanuel's Temple would later receive a name change but until then God used Prophet Owens mightily in deliverance ministry, for lay and clergy alike, often preaching and ministering 5 to 7 days a week. For the next 18 years Prophet Owens ministered via local radio and television and then throughout the states and around the world into international ministry via the Word Network. As a direct result of this exposure Prophet and Prophetess Owens were awarded honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degrees in recognition of their contributions to the Church. In 2006 a new name was given, Immanuel's Temple Systems of Church, the canopy under which the first sister church would be planted. By 2007 the first God-ordained sister church was planted in Las Vegas, Nevada, thereby placing Prophet Owens into the office of Bishop.
Bishop Owens is known and recognized throughout the church world for his powerful deliverance ministry and for his teaching of sound doctrine. His brand is yet the same, Holiness is still right.
