Bethel’s New Opportunity

Planting churches is a strategic component of reaching the greater Houston area for Christ. Every week, as many as 2,300 new people move to Houston and its suburban areas. And, more than one-million people who call Houston home were born outside the United States, represent more than 3,000 people groups, and speak more than 200 languages. The nations have come to Houston.

In order to reach the six-million people who live in the greater Houston area, we need more churches that will reach and love their way into every sector of the community. We also need church-planting churches, like Kingsland. Our vision statement says, in part, “As a church that participates in the Great Commission we will continue to birth daughter churches as quickly as the Lord provides the people and resources.”

In August 2012, we planted Bethel Bible Fellowship, our third daughter church. Bethel has faithfully met every week in The Loft, one of our student ministry venues. Over the past year, Pastor Paul Cockrell and the members of Bethel have prayed for God’s guidance regarding a permanent home. The people of Bethel now have a strategic opportunity before them that can put their new church in the middle of a sea of homes in the ever-growing suburban areas to our southwest.

Bethel has produced a brief informational video on this land opportunity. Please take a moment to watch the video. The video features Pastor Alex Kennedy, our former senior pastor, challenging our church to plant a third daughter church. If you would like more information on how you can get involved or assist Bethel as they move forward, please contact Pastor Paul Cockrell at
