Looking For A Church In West Houston Suburbs?

woven0009

I’ve had the privilege of starting a new church with a great core group of people this past summer and we’re about to start a new phase in a new meeting location.

But rewinding a bit…

One of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made, was just a few months ago – to come out of a safe, ethnic-specific context in order to plant a multiethnic church in a place where it is quite segregated on Sunday. It was a scary decision and I spent many a night counting the cost… literally.

But since then, faith has been blessed with fruit as I am witnessing this beautiful community called Woven take shape. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s high-collaboration, and I am learning to be a servant-leader among so many passionate, involved, gifted young people. (and some oldies like me too :)

I work in what has been called THE MOST diverse and fastest-growing county in America: Fort Bend County, Texas. It is a big-surprise that God is bringing such radical diversity to Texas, but it is true. Bigger than striking oil, we are sharing Jesus with this vast immigrant suburban population by planting one of the first multiethnic churches in the West suburbs of Houston in a town called Katy.

I feel like I am planting a church to give it away to the people. Since we are a suburban and unapologetically yuppie community of professionals who commute downtown, my passion is bringing faith to life for a people trying to bridge the disconnect between faith and the 9 to 5.

So if you are in the Katy area or the West suburbs of Houston, and are looking for a church, look up Woven: We are a church with a multiethnic mission and a missional message for the West suburbs of Houston, TX.

Peace out.
