About the Organization:

In the words of Mother Teresa, "We want to love Jesus like he has never been loved before." That is why it is the mission of WoodsEdge Community Church to Love Jesus, Journey Together and Bring Hope to the World.

Founded 24 years ago as a seeker church modeled after Willowcreek, WoodsEdge Community Church has grown much over the years, but has still retained their original heart for the church – desires to be a diverse, welcoming place of worship and teaching, where honesty, humility and authenticity are highly valued and lived out by the staff of the church. 

Missions and prayer are two of WoodsEdge Community Church’s biggest focuses. In 2002, the church began an initiative to emphasize a stronger spirit of prayer in WoodsEdge and now it is their biggest value. In addition to a deep foundation of prayer within the church, WoodsEdge also supports 60 missional organizations in addition to missionaries. It is evident, from the first moment someone steps inside their doors, that they are a church that deeply desires to help people love Jesus like He’s never been loved before, and equip them with prayer and opportunities to give and serve to live that out in their everyday lives.

About the Location:

Spring, TX is a suburb north of Houston, TX, and is tucked between the big city skylines of Houston and the vast farmland and countryside of Huntsville and beyond towards Dallas. It is a historical city, beginning as a trading post at Spring Creek in the mid 1800s with a couple hundred residents. Many German immigrants came to the area and used the abundant land as profitable farmland. Today, Spring is home to about 54,000 residents and is a popular area for young families to move to because of its proximity to excellent school systems, higher educational opportunities, and short commute to nearby headquarters of major oil and gas and engineering companies in the Woodlands and Houston proper.

Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States and the largest city in Texas. It is home to the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest concentration of healthcare, research institutions and NASA’s Johnson Space Center where Mission Control is located.  

Spring was named #14 of the 20 most affordable locations to live in the United States in 2008 by CNN Money. Residents of this area love Spring and Klein, a nearby community, for its entertainment, shopping opportunities, culture, dining and proximity to the city. It is the best of both worlds – at just under 40 minutes-drive into the city of Houston, it is a quieter reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Houston but still offers the quality of life that Houston is known for.
