Letter from the Publisher

Change is in the Air In only a matter of days, school will start up once again, ushering in the first cool front of the year! This upcoming school year is a significant one in my fatherhood. This year marks my youngest child’s final stint in grade school before she goes off to college, and I will become an official Empty Nester! My how the years have flown by. I have mixed emotions about that, but I am thankful to God for all of the wonderful years that I spent with my kids living at home. I also thank the Lord for their happiness and health, and pray these conditions follow them permanently. I am hopeful that one day soon I will start having grandchildren, but there’s no rush for that!
Correspondingly, if you peered at our cover this issue and tried to figure out what was dif-ferent, but were unable to do so, I’m thrilled to break the news that we changed our logo! My staff (and many others) have reminded me for quite some time me that it was time for a change, and after almost 13 years, we came up with this new logo. I was quite fond of our old logo; the dove in the cross signified Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River by John, with the Spirit descended from Heaven upon Him. However, the times have changed and we at the the Katy and Fort Bend Christian Magazine family believe our new logo symbolizes our growth as a publication, due to the Lord’s many blessings. As always, we appreciate our loyal readers’ feedback! Your opinions are always welcome, whether focused on our logo change or otherwise.

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.
