In 1984, a visionary group of believers began seeking ways to reach people in Katy and West Houston. Pastor Roy Meadows was called in 1988 as the first dedicated pastor to follow this dream. Initially, a tiny group of 38 Christ-followers worshiped in a rented Mexican Restaurant. Attendance grew by leaps and bounds, and in 2001 the congregation built a beautiful 33,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility on a 16 acre campus located on the Grand Parkway.
As senior pastor, Meadows has watched Westland Baptist bloom into an active faith community. There is a wonderful vibrancy at the church. Mens’, women’s, children’s, and senior’s ministries abound, as well as adult Bible fellowship classes, outreach and worship arts. But Westland Baptist is also a place of welcome and usefulness to the people and organizations of Katy. The church opens its doors as an after hours meeting place for groups such as Scouts and NCL.
Blessed to be raised in a family that taught him about God’s love and plan for his life, Meadows received Christ as a child. For a time in his teen years he did not serve Christ, but God was faithful. At 19 he sensed God was calling him to be a pastor. “For over 30 years I’ve had the privilege of leading God’s people to fulfill the mission of the church,” says Meadows. “My desire is to be a man who loves God, loves and leads my wife and children, and leads the people of Westland Baptist. It is my hope to reach the lost and develop all believers into fully devoted followers of Christ.”
Friendly people, exciting services, and relevant messages are hallmarks of the church. This is why so many feel Westland Baptist is, “The Church to Call Home.” Service Times are 8:30 (traditional) and 11:00 a.m. (contemporary). Bible Fellowships start at 9:45 a.m. An Interpreter for the hearing impaired is provided during the 11 a.m. service. Westland Baptist is located at 1407 W. Grand Parkway South.
