Who We Are

Resurrection Brings New Life to Katy Methodists

Resurrection Methodist Church is a fitting name for the newest congregation to welcome members into the Global Methodist Church. Resurrection, as it is known to its founding pastor, is a new church start congregation meeting at Katy High School in Katy, TX. As with many of the new Global Methodist Church starts, Resurrection claims a strong heritage of former United Methodists who have left their former congregations to join in the new Global Methodist Church movement. Rev. Jason Smith, the founding pastor, is the former senior pastor of First United Methodist Church, Katy, which failed to reach the threshold of 66% at a congregational vote to disaffiliate. Rev. Smith, along with many of his former congregation, answered the call to start a new congregation in the GMC.

But Resurrection is more than a group disgruntled with the failed disaffiliation vote. The congregation is dedicated to the strong, evangelical tenets that are one of the bulwarks of the Global Methodist Church. The congregation is dedicated to sharing the gospel and leading people into new life in Jesus Christ. At their initial informational meeting, nearly 200 were in attendance. While many of these were former members at First United Methodist, the crowd also included many from other area United Methodist congregations who also did not disaffiliate. It was at that point that the leadership were affirmed in their calling and knew they could not delay their start of a new congregation. By the time they held their first worship service the crowd had grown to over 300, exceeding even the wildest hopes of all the leadership.

Sunday, February 5, was the historic first day of joining at Resurrection Methodist Church. Rev. Smith, joined by President Pro Tempore of the Eastern Texas Conference, Rev. Jim Welch, welcomed in 335 members, the founding members of Resurrection. This team of members will continue to meet together in worship in preparation for their official public launch before Easter Sunday of 2023. Expectations are that Resurrection will continue to grow as they gather in like-minded Christians who are seeking to share Jesus Christ and discover the new life that Jesus offers.
