Letter from the Publisher

Summer is over, and autumn has arrived, but you wouldn’t know that if you stepped outside! Don’t fret though, as cooler weather is on the way. Another school year is underway, and for the first time in 20 years, I have no children in grade school. I do, however, have three in college.

It’s difficult to believe, but on November 5th, we begin our fifteenth year of publishing. So much has changed in the industry, and much is not for the good. I have watched countless magazines disappear completely or go straight digital. I’ve pondered the latter myself a few times to be completely honest.

My team and I have decided to start converting Katy Christian Magazine and Fort Bend Christian Magazine into a subscription-based magazine. Over the next few years, you will see us slowly disappear from most of our free pick-up locations as we make this transformation.

We have always considered our magazines a ministry, with the purpose of promoting Christian values in our respected communities. In order for us to accomplish this, we need two things – advertisers and paid subscribers. Without those essential ingredients, we (like any magazine) would cease to exist.

Please help us reach our goal by subscribing today to either of our sister publications or both! You can start receiving our magazines mailed to your house by sending a check to:

Katy Christian Magazine and/or
Fort Bend Christian Magazine
650 West Bough, Suite 150-170
Houston, TX  77024

The cost is $29.95 a year for one magazine or $49.94 for both publications.




Inside this issue is our second annual Health and Wellness Guide. Please take the time to see who you might need to use in the future for healthcare needs. Remember to always support our advertisers and please let them know that you saw the ads in our magazine.

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.
