Letter from the Publisher

Merry Christmas! What a blessed season this is as we celebrate the miracle of Christ’s birth. May the meaning of mankind’s greatest gift remain with us throughout 2014. Congratulations to the Brawner family and their tradition of law enforcement in our area. Sergeant Brian Brawner was recently honored and awarded his commencement pin by his father, Chuck Brawner. Read all about it!

In this issue we feature our school directory, filled with the best parochial and charter schools our community has to offer. We interviewed Aristoi Classical Academy about their campus and curriculum. You’ll find some of their students on our cover. 

We are happy to debut our social column courtesy of SuburbanBuzz, filled with people of faith who are doing exciting things in the community. Enjoy the buzz about Katy — and be sure to submit your community photos and captions to editor@katychristianmagazine.com for consideration.

Blessings to our readers and Christian advertisers, who are so appreciated in our community.

May You Be Richly Blessed,

Joseph R. Menslage

Joseph Menslage

As the President and Publisher of Katy and Fort Bend Christian Magazines, Joe Menslage is committed to covering social and political news from a Christian worldview. He founded Katy Christian Magazine in 2005, which swept the greater Houston and Katy areas like a storm. That’s when Joe realized the urgent need for publications willing to give voices to the voiceless, without political correctness or censorship. Joe Menslage founded sister-publication Fort Bend Christian Magazine in 2014. Prior to creating Katy Christian Magazine, Joe Menslage led a colorful life. He was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, spent a great deal of his childhood in Colorado, and lived in a couple of other states before he moved to Houston in 1981. Joe was God-gifted with an entrepreneurial mind, and self-started other business ventures before he found his calling. In Joe’s words, our innate talents are given by the Lord, and are meant to be used to serve the Lord. Aside from being a President and Publisher, Joe Menslage is also the co-founder of Katy Christian Chamber of Commerce, where Christians can network, build business connections, listen to passionate speakers, and enjoy monthly breakfasts and lunches. Joe Menslage also hosts a weekly political satire YouTube channel. Joe Menslage has four children. Outside of work, he enjoys hiking, watching zombie movies and K dramas, ax-throwing and Krav Maga.
