RADICALLY FOCUSED ON JESUS

We will lift up the name of Jesus above every name and will be passionate worshippers

SERVING THE CITY AND WORLD

We will serve and give sacrificially to bring the gospel to the vulnerable and lost in Jesus’ name

STARTING CHURCHES

We will start new churches throughout the city to reach new people

OUR VISION

When we started Bayou City Fellowship, we had a vision for a church with a singular focus: using our lives to declare the unending greatness of Jesus in this city we love so much. By God’s grace, he is continually bringing more and more people to carry that vision along with us. That’s the best part of Bayou City Fellowship. We are a growing family, now meeting in multiple locations, who spend our days on what matters most - Jesus for the people of the city.

And what we will need to get there:

And what we will need to get there:

New Churches

Across the City

Why

Houston is the fourth largest city in the US and the population is growing faster than any other metro area, according to 2016 Census data. It is also increasingly diverse, and hundreds of new local churches are needed to reach this influential city. Studies show that new churches reach people outside of faith about five times faster than churches of similar size that have been around much longer, so we are committed to being a church planting church, believing the local church is God’s strategy for redeeming and restoring our city.

What

Over the next few years, we hope to start new churches around our city. We recently started a church in Tomball from our Cypress campus. In the coming years, we are praying God would allow us to do the same thing in these strategic regions of the city from where people already drive to reach one of our existing campuses.

New Partnerships

with Jesus-centered ministries locally and globally

Why

From our beginning, we decided that we will use our resources for the good of the city and world instead of exhausting them on our own physical and spiritual entertainment. We committed to set aside 20% of our income for outreach and mobilization, most of which is used to provide financial support to partners who are doing great kingdom work. We believe we can be most effective by enabling partners rather than starting our own programs, so we partner with them and provide them with financial support and volunteers to help them grow in their impact for our city and world. These partners represent key areas of need: orphans, trafficking, and refugees.

What

From 2012 to 2018, Bayou City contributed more $5 million in direct financial support to partners doing kingdom work in our city and world. As each new Bayou City campus sets aside 20% for outreach, we anticipate that by 2020 we will be contributing more than $2 million each year to fund God's work in these places. We plan to further enhance the processes and staff support to ensure our partners get the maximum benefit from the generosity of our church.

New Leaders

who are making disciples of women, men, kids, and students

Why

We do not make a habit of counting attendees but we estimate there are now about 4,000 adults attending Bayou City Fellowship each week. More than 700 children each Sunday are learning about Jesus in our children’s ministry, and we have 1,500 people participating in Community Groups. You can imagine that our most significant challenge with the rapid growth has been identifying and equipping the leaders who can pastor and disciple children, youth, and adults.

What

We need to raise up leaders and pastors who shepherd Community Groups, lead service teams, teach, and become new campus pastors. To do this, we are launching an effort within Bayou City Fellowship to help identify and train new leaders. Also, the growth in our attendees will require new staff to ensure the Kids, Students, Women’s and Men’s ministries remain vibrant and strong.
