The planting of new Christ-honoring churches is crucial for the growth of the body of Christ, especially in a city like ours. Houston’s population continues to grow quickly and future projected growth is exponential. It is said that we are expected to triple in size in the next 50 years. We must be diligent about planting churches, seeing the revival of existing churches, and making disciples if we are to see Houston become a city of God.

I'm interested in planting a church

Our international team is vigorously planting churches primarily in Hispanic countries to bring hope to the world at a global level, and a Movements team working towards Disciple Making Movements locally and globally.


Domestic Church Planting

In Texas, we currently have a network of 20 like-minded churches, the Known Network, nine of which we have planted ourselves. Others, we adopted as they exited the Houston Church Planting Network, and several we invited in because they are churches who want to collaborate in order to see their city reached with the gospel.

Our churches span from Kingwood to Alief and as far north as Conroe. We have partnered with churches in San Marcos, Lake Travis, and Liberty Hill in the Austin area. Most of this has happened in the past two years.

Our church plants will always be a part of the WoodsEdge Family, but it is our goal to plant churches and then commission them as financially stable, self-sufficient churches that are operationally independent. For that reason, our church plants do not carry ‘WoodsEdge’ as a part of their name.

International Church Planting

The WoodsEdge Family of Churches – International Hispanic, is a network of 27 churches in Mexico, Columbia, Ecuador, Venezuela, as well as Spain and Italy. Our Hispanic missions team actively engages leaders around the globe, equipping them, and helping them lead successful churches.

Disciple Making Movements

In addition to church planting, we believe that Disciple Making Movements are critical to advancing the Gospel. Our Movements team works both locally and abroad to multiply the Gospel. This is where disciples are making disciples by sharing their faith and mentoring others, and then continuing to encourage those they are teaching to do the same. This multiplication process is called a Disciple Making Movement.
