Description:

About The Foundry… The Foundry is a multi-site church serving the communities in NW Houston and Cypress. Founded in 1978, The Foundry has grown into a church with several thousand active members who are engaged in helping others to know, follow and share Jesus. We are committed to building resilient faith in the next generation and to allow God to work through us in our community where we live, work, study, and play. By calling ourselves The Foundry we embrace both the mission of John Wesley, who radically changed the world by sharing the truth about Jesus with countless people, and our start in a humble foundry. We invite God to work in us, using the circumstances of our lives to “refine us like silver and purify us like gold,” (Zechariah 13:9). Together, we are allowing the master artist to transform us and create something beautiful from our lives. Learn more at foundrychurch.org/about.
