Saturday Night Alive.

This vibrant ministry was active in Fairfax Virginia from the mid- to late-70's (I think 1977 or 78) until sometime in the 1980's. It had a big role in my spiritual development - wonderful worship and great teaching. Because of H. Lawrence "Renny" Scott, I ended up at Church of the Apostles and became an Episcopalian.

If you look in the picture of the Praise Band, the person on the back row, second from the right? That's Rick Lord who is currently the Rector at Holy Comforter in Vienna; his blog is here.

Benny Phillips is now down in Orlando with his wife Sheree (who was also in the Praise Band). Renny is the Headmaster at Christian Heritage School in Dalton Georgia.

  1. When I was thirteen, I began attending Saturday Night Alive and met Jesus as my Savior through this ministry. I still have all those songs the Praise Band sang in my head. I know the Praise Band put out an album. Do you know if there is any way to get a hold of a copy of it? Album, cassette or otherwise?

    Thank you for the blessing of your ministry back then. It changed my life!

    Wishing you many blessings,

  2. I was a senior in high school when I began attending Church of Apostles and Saturday Night Alive. The worship and the word preached at those sessions were so key to my new-found faith's growing & thriving. I am grateful for that time, those people.
