Our History

All Saints Presbyterian Church was formally established in the summer of 2003 as a mission church of the Presbyterian Church in America (P.C.A.).

A core group of people from Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Austin had begun meeting in the spring of that year for a weekly Bible study, with an eye towards perhaps planting a new PCA church in West Austin. That study was led by Bill Boyd, who was then serving as the campus minister for Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Texas. During its formation, All Saints also received aid and oversight from the Southwest Church Planting Network.

All Saints’ first worship service was held on Sunday, September 7, 2003, in a former Episcopal church on Bee Caves Road. That November, over 150 founding members formally joined. The next year and a half brought new members from all over the city, as God continued to bless the church’s work.

On May 15, 2005, All Saints became a particular church in the PCA. Under the presbytery’s oversight, the congregation issued a formal call to Bill Boyd to become their pastor, and installed ruling elders for the first time. Three weeks later, All Saints moved from its original location to St. Gabriel’s Catholic School where the church met until 2016.

In the spring of 2012, All Saints called and formally installed Rev. Tim Frickenschmidt as the next Senior Pastor. In December of that year, the congregation voted to purchase property off Southwest Parkway on which to build a permanent church home.

The years that followed saw a successful building fundraising campaign and the simultaneous planting of a new church, Grace + Peace, in north-central Austin.

All Saints moved into our new church campus on August 21, 2016. We are eager to see how the Lord will continue to work through our church in our new location to minister to the city of Austin and the world.
