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 currently have two locations, our original location is at the apex corner of three major cities Richmond, Katy, and Fulshear; while our second location is in the heart of north Katy.

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, and started an online venue. Parkway has an average weekly attendance of over 4,000 attendees with a Student Ministry attendance averaging 400+ students per week.

Parkway Fellowship has appeared on the Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches in America by Outreach Magazine 5 times with the most recent in 2023.

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