Called, chosen and faithful, the attributes of Prophetess Patricia A. Owens Elect Lady of Immanuel's Temple Systems of Church. With a background filled with elders, evangelist and teachers, this native of Gary, Indiana and graduate of Purdue University, first began her training for ministry while a young girl in her grandfather's church. She loved God, was faithful to her grandfather and to the church and subsequently called as a missionary. While at a church conference in Dallas, Texas she met and later married a young man of God from Lansing, Michigan, now Bishop Phillip E. Owens.
This young couple early in marriage recognized that their destiny and callings were one and together sought God to chart their path. For over 11 years she faithfully supported and was devoted to her husband's call as they served their local church, community and state, evangelizing and preaching the word of God with power and anointing. It was in 1988 that God called forth the founding of Immanuel's Temple Community Church in Lansing, Michigan. Immanuel's Temple was built on a foundation of holiness and righteousness, virtues which were rapidly fading from the church world. She has been an instrumental force in the growth and soundness of ITCC. This was her destiny. There was no aspect of it's formation in which she did not participate. Her greatest weapon was that of prayer, and she helped train the saints likewise to be warriors in the spirit until all aspects of Immanuel's Temple were in place – including the building of a $10 million debt-free church. Immanuel's Temple has been a beacon of light around the world, seen weekly on The Word Network. In recognition of Prophet and Prophetess Owens' contributions they were awarded honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degrees in 2005.
In tribute to Prophetess Owens, the P. A. Owens Christian Academy was established, recognizing her as its visionary, champion, and president. Bishop Owens serves as chancellor. Train up a child in the way he should go is a virtue she lives by, especially when raising their 3 children, Emanuel, Rachel and Josiah, all in ministry.
Prophetess Owens continually adds to the strength and spiritual health of the ministry. Most recently she produced and narrated the entire Word of God which speaks volumes to her faithfulness to complete whatever task God sets before her. This 12-Disc MP3 Collection entitled Elect Lady's Biblical Readings is made available around the world via The Word Network.
