Gary Milbourne | Revolution Church | Pearland, Texas
11.7 people move to Pearland Texas every day! Gary & Tammy Milbourne were blessed with four hard working families with servants hearts to join the launch team in planting a racially diverse church in this rapidly growing, multicultural city.
Because of the generosity of a godly business man, they meet in a 9,000 square children's play place called Lone Star Bounce Town! Talk about a fun church! Revolution Church has steadily grown over the last year and a half using the Bounce Town to turn customers into Christians.
Gary graduated from BBC in 1986 and he and Tammy have had three children also graduate from there as well, (and one black sheep graduate from Liberty University!) Please pray for this unique work and that racial and cultural barriers will continue to be broken down by the power of the Gospel.

Randy Moore | Revolution Church | McKinney, Texas
Pastor Randy dreamed of planting a brand new life-giving church with a simple goal- to maximize the chances of seeing lost people find and follow God.
The vision for Revolution Church came to Randy & Amy in January of 2012. Immediately surrendering to the call on their lives, they began to raise support as missionaries to start this brand new life-giving church. In April of 2012, after much research and desire to discover where God would have them to plant this church, they visited McKinney, Texas where God revealed to them His desire for His work to be in this area.
Their first goal was to begin to develop a launch team to help them launch Revolution Church. Through the efforts of the Dream Team, Revolution Church officially launched on April 6, 2014 with 208 people in attendance! God has really blessed the efforts of those who have been obedient to give of their time, talents, and treasure to follow Him with their lives!
Lynn Phipps | Burrell Chapel Baptist Church | Angelton, Texas
Pastor Lynn grew up on the North Side of Houston Texas. Pastor Lynn has previously served as associated minister the New Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, where Dr. Wiley L. Dunn, Sr. was his Pastor. He was also responsible for leading many study groups, youth ministries and men ministries within the church.
Having being commissioned by God to plant a new church, Pastor Lynn and family left New Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and began to served in two different locations on the North Side of Houston while attempting to establish a group of people to start a church, but the doors did not open as he expected. Not willing to give up on this mandate giving by the Lord, an opportunity presented itself in the Angleton, Texas (South Houston) area. A small group of believers at Burrell Chapel gave him an invitation to come and lead them into the future. After being convinced in my heart that this was the Lord's will, Lynn accepted the challenge and decided to move forward with a new organization that promises to be the ground work for a new-planted church in the South Houston area. Pastor Lynn and his wife Kia have been married for 10 years and are the proud parents of three children, Mikayla 16, Lyndon, 8 and Kiara 7.
