David Welch

After growing up on a farm in west Texas, Lead Pastor David Welch made his way to Texas Tech University. While digging deep into his studies, God began to reveal a new path – one that would lead him to begin work in ministry at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. Pastor Welch served in various staff roles both in Dallas and Fort Worth, and then spent many years in Little Rock, Arkansas, serving in multiple roles. In 2001 he arrived at Bear Creek Baptist Church. Pastor Welch, his wife Bj, and their two young daughters soon settled into the Katy area. From that time, the church grew from a congregation of 650 in the original building on Clay Road to more than 2,500 at its present location on Fry Road where Pastor Welch continues to lead Bear Creek, a gospel-centered, disciple making community for all people.
