About Parkway Fellowship:

Our church mission is, “To reach the lost at any cost and grow them to maturity.” We have a vision to effectively minister to 10% of our community every week. We are located in Katy, Texas.

The Park first opened in 2003 as a portable church meeting in a local high school. After reaching 500+ in attendance, the church had enough people and resources to acquire land and build a building in 2010. Since then, The Park has expanded its current facilities twice, opened a second location, started a youth ministry in a nearby community targeting underprivileged teens, and started an online venue.

Parkway Fellowship has appeared on the Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches in America by Outreach Magazine four years in a row from 2011-2014. We narrowly missed being on the list again in 2018.
