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.


The Student Pastor is a position on our Senior Staff (top level staff) and reports directly to the Senior Pastor.
