On May 5, 1983; nine people met for Bible study at the 18th hole clubhouse at Walden on Lake Conroe. Ten days later Neva Martin invited her brother, Rev Jack Treend to lead one of the studies and to preach a sermon. Soon after the service a meeting was called to establish a non-denominational church in the Walden community.
Jack Treend was called to be the founding pastor and a plot of land located in the center of Walden was set aside for the building of what would be called Walden Community Church on Lake Conroe.
Fifteen people were among our first core members; Alvie & Pearl Gooch, Neva Martin, Peggy Myers, Edy Untermeyer, Chester & Rita Rossi, Bob & Mary Joe Lee, Rita Sullivan, Jack & Joan Edwards, Richard Pamariz, and Pastor Jack Treend and his wife Fran.
Two years later in 1985 a church building fund was started and one year from that on August 3, 1986 a ground breaking ceremony was already underway. Walden Community Church’s first services were held on March 22, 1987 in the new building.
Since that time, three other men have come alongside our family and contributed to the leadership and history of our church as Senior Pastor; Ken Ramey, Roy Joe Ham and Tom Golden.
Most recently, in July 2011, Walden called David Kenney who came to us all the way from California, as senior pastor. Today, under his leadership, WCC hopes to continue being a resource to the community, a center for discipleship and a church for you and your family.
