Letter from the Publisher

Katy Christian Magazine would like to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! As many of you know, Christmas has been under assault for years by the “Away with the Manger” campaign. Many local, city, state, and federal government locations can no longer display Nativity scenes due to the Separation of Church and State. This principle, however, has been widely misconstrued in recent years. As originally ruled by the Supreme Court,  Separation of Church and State was never intended to keep the church out of government affairs, but to keep the government out of the church.

Christ is the true meaning of Christmas. It was because of His birth (and later, death and resurrection) that we, as sinners, could be redeemed to God through Christ, His Son. I love the bumper stickers that I see on cars that say, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” and “Keep Christ in Christmas.” Good thing Christ wasn’t born today. I mean, after all, Mary was a single, pregnant teen. She would have certainly had a lot of pressure not to have the baby!

Many of you are reading Katy Christian Magazine for the first time. Our magazine has been a free pick up publication since its inception in the fall of 2005 at over 700 locations. We have now decided to become a direct-mail magazine to over 23,000 homes in the Katy area. We will be alternating homes each publication so you will receive this magazine (if you are reading this letter today) several times a year. With this new direct-mail approach, we hope to spread our loving message to an even larger audience. 

Our mission is to promote Christian and family values. We are dependent on our wonderful advertisers to accomplish this task. We encourage you, as our readers, to support them whenever possible. Please take a minute to drop by and let them know that you saw their ad in our magazine, and that you appreciate their support!

If you are looking for a great Christian school for your kids, this issue features our annual Christian School Directory. We have taken the time to list many of the Christian schools in our community so that you can make an informed decision as to where your children should attend. 

Once again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

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.
