In 2009 my Dad looked at my husband and said… “Why don’t you just start the Spanish Church right here in your home?”
So we did!!
In The 5 Years that followed My Dad would often greet My husband with The words, “Pastor Papi, How’s The Templo?”
“Papi”, Spanish For Daddy, Is what My children Call their Dad.
The Name of our Church Is Templo Pentecostal de Mckinney.
His constant prayers & encouragement for The “Templo” meant The world to us during Those first years. It was his desire to see it flourish. In his honor all procedes from what he taught us will be used to do just that… Meet The Needs Of The templo so it can Grow!

In memory of …

Lance C. Appleton

Sept. 22, 1952 – Feb. 18, 2015

Lance Appleton is now a celebration of the life, music, and ministry of Lance Appleton.   Lance passed away at home with his family by his side Feb. 18, 2015 after a long battle with cancer.

He recorded 8 albums, “One God Apostolic” 1974, “Harp Warming” 1975, “So Happy” 1977 , “Run On” 1981,  “Live in San Francisco”1985, “Songs of Deliverance”1995, “Unto You and To Your Children” 1997, and “Hopes are High” 2002.  In addition he made two quality home recordings of his original songs “Lance Appleton Unplugged” in 2006 and a 5 disc compilation dubbed “In the Living Room with Lance” in 2008 and 2009.  Lance wrote more than 250 songs, and many were never recorded in studio quality.  This site is dedicated to bringing you his complete body of work some only left behind on cassette tapes, handwritten notes, or perhaps just in the memory of those who heard him playing, and singing his songs around the house.  Feel free to contribute your own recollections of his unique style of ministry though the comment section of this blog.
