your name on high.

As the hands and feet of Jesus, we are called to reach out to those in need around us.  We consider the Tomball, Cypress, and Magnolia areas our mission field as we try to share the love of God through our helping others.  Some examples include Faith-In-Action, UMCor, T.E.A.M., Big House as well as others.  Come learn how you can be a part of changing the world around us.


Come and join us for an opportunity to experience how we may find the Truth through scripture. Our class invites everyone to join in our study of scripture that enlightens, educates and motivates each of us to be the disciple we can be as we discern how we are called to serve our Lord and Savior. Our study is open and lively with discussion that invokes open thought and conversation in our search.



The music ministry of Rose Hill UMC maintains the rich musical heritage of Methodism.  Musical experiences and training are offered to all age levels so that gifts will be developed and the church will sing and pray the story of God’s redemptive act in Christ both now and in the future.



 Pastor’s Corner

Growing up in Wisconsin, Jason loved two things: Jesus and football.  He accepted Christ into his life at the age of 6 and was baptized in Lake Michigan at age 19.  Raised in the Church of the Nazarene as a pastor’s kid, Jason grew up singing in the church where his mom played the piano, his grandmother played the organ, and his grandfather directed the choir.

Jason went to Trinity International University in Chicago on a football scholarship, and, after graduating with a B.A. in Social Science, Jason attended the graduate school at TIU.  The coach convinced him to play another year since he had red-shirted as a freshman.   At the end of that year, Jason received an M.A. in Faith and Culture.

In 2001, Jason moved to the Promised Land (Texas) and began a brief career in teaching.  He taught 8th grade U.S. History, was a Social Studies Department Chair, and coached football, basketball, and track.  During that time, Jason earned an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction at Houston Baptist University. In 2007, Jason answered the call into ministry.  That year he joined the staff at Christ United Methodist Church in Sugar Land. Because neither of his graduate degrees were a Master of Divinity, Jason started commuting from Houston to Dallas to attend Perkins School of Theology at SMU part-time and served as executive director of discipleship.  Once he became a pastor, he helped Christ Church start the hub, a modern worship service.  Jason preached weekly at this vibrant service, which saw tremendous growth in just three years.

Jason joined the pastoral staff at The Woodlands UMC in 2013 where he preached frequently in both traditional and contemporary services.  At TWUMC, Jason also began writing and publishing church wide studies, which are currently available on He also completed his Master of Divinity in 2013 to add to his B.A., M.A. and M.Ed. An ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, Jason is currently a Ph.D. in theology candidate at the University of South Africa, writing within the fields of evangelism and missiology as a PolyCarp Community Fellow.

Jason has four precious children (Hannah, Madeline, Olivia and Brooks) who bring so much joy to his life.

Define Church: Apostles’ Teaching
Today we begin our new sermon series, Define: Church. What, or better yet, who is the Church? Why do we exist? What are we called to do? Who are we called to be? Where are we called to go and who are we called to serve? This morning we will begin to explore a few of these questions, which are questions regarding what the first century Christians called, Ecclesia (Church). Employing Acts 2:42 as our driving verse, we will consider how we might continue to grow as a vibrant congregation of faith empowered to share the love and message of Christ within our community and to the ends of the earth!

    Raised To Life: Road To Nowhere
    Today, we will complete our current sermon series, Raised to Life.”  Jesus is alive and is spontaneously surprising those who had put there hopes in him.  On Resurrection Sunday, Jesus meets up with two despondent friends who are walking down a path of despair... who are on a road to nowhere.  Then, out of nowhere, Jesus appears and changes the course of their lives.  This morning, we will explore this amazing account and ponder what this encounter with the Risen Christ might mean for us.

    Raised to Life: Surprise!
    Today, we continue our sermon series, Raised to Life.  Can you imagine seeing our Risen Lord, in the flesh?  The disciples can!  On Easter Sunday night, they experienced light and life radiating from Christ. Our Bible text today takes us to this first encounter between the resurrected Christ and his disciples; and, it teaches us to always be on the look out for Christ sightings wherever we go.  You never know when Jesus might suddenly and powerfully appear.

    People of the Resurrection: The Living Christ
    After Jesus was raised to life, he suddenly and spontaneously appeared to his disciples on a number of occasions, each time giving them glimpses of the new life that was now available to them.  Over the next three weeks, we will focus on the power of the Resurrection and how this power immediately transformed Jesus’ disciples into people of The Resurrection.  You’re invited to join us as we explore the impact of the empty tomb and what it means, for us, to be raised to life in Christ and to live as people of The Resurrection as well.

    I Know Nothing
    Over the past few weeks we've walked with Jesus as he and his disciples traveled from the home of the-new-and-improved Lazarus, in Bethany, to the infamous upper room, in Jerusalem.  We've seen how Jesus' last seven days were very eventful, to say the least. So far we have reflected upon the significance of: Mary anointing Jesus' feet (Friday), Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Sunday), the chaos he then created in the Temple (Monday), the way he handled the pharisees (Tuesday), and finally, the importance of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples and establishing a new version of the Passover Meal (Thursday).  But today (Friday), 8 days after his feet were covered with perfume, his feet will now be nailed to the cross.  And although we will reflect more deeply upon his crucifixion on Good Friday, let's begin to get as near to the Cross of Christ as we can, today.

    What a Day!
    Jesus’ week is finally coming to an end… his end actually (although it’s only temporary).  In typical Jesus fashion, he has spent all week stirring the religious and political pot (so to speak), by calling out the unjust and unrighteous actions and activities of those in power.  Jesus has also spent all week stirring the hearts, minds, and souls of countless people desperate for a true encounter with God.  But now, on Thursday, Jesus begins to tie the knot.  He starts to wrap things up.  The cross is close! So, Jesus reveals to his disciples, and us, some of the most profound truths in all of existence, making Thursday one of the most exceptional days in human history… making Thursday a day that sets us up with some of the most sacred practices we will ever experience!

    Wild at Heart!
    Can you imagine the shock on the people's faces as they watch Jesus make a scene in the Temple.  Can you visualize Him tossing tables and throwing chairs. What Jesus does on the Monday before He dies on the cross wasn't just disruptive; it was revolutionary.  After all, who gave Him authority to judge what can and cannot be done in the Temple? Uh, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that (as the Son of God) He has absolute authority over everything.  So, for many people this day, all bets are off (wink, wink) as Jesus excises His Divine rights and gives us a glimpse into who He is and what He expects from us.

    What an Entrance!
    Movies have shown us over the years that conquering heroes ride into town on stallions.  Many of our modern day heroes fly in by private jets or drive in via their fancy cars to the flashing lights of the paparazzi and to the rolling out of the red carpet.  Well, this always draws a lot of attention and creates a great deal of excitement.  On Palm Sunday, Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey!  Both His arrival, and the way Jesus arrives, are significant on so many fronts; and if we climb into Matthew 21 and climb upon the donkey with Jesus, we will gain a new perspective into who Jesus is and what He intends to do!  And this perspective can change your life!

    Dining with Jesus
    This morning we will sit down with Jesus for a dinner in Bethany and will look for all the amazing things that transpire in this story. This dinner party is pretty special and the evening is amazing for many reasons. But the highlight of the evening is Mary’s response to the overwhelming love of Christ. She pours out her very best on Jesus. She gives her all, which is fitting, because Jesus is going to give his all for us 8 days later when he welcomes death for you and for me. What will you pour out for Jesus today?

    When Jesus Comes To Town
    Zacchaeus was living large in his day.  Collecting taxes was his game. He had money and influence.  But, he had no friends; and he was living for the wrong things.  He needed change!  And change is what he got when he met Jesus… radical change actually.  Zacchaeus did a 180!  Like a coin, Jesus flipped his life.  Instead of following the ways of this world, Zacchaeus followed the Way to eternal life.  Money had consumed his life but then he met Jesus and his life became consumed with purpose! Looking for change?  You can count on Jesus.


VBS 2018 is Coming Soon!
Our Children’s Ministry is gearing up for VBS.  It’s just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited.  The theme is “Shipwrecked” where we will “venture onto an uncharted island where kids are rescued by Jesus! Anchor kids in the truth that Jesus carries them through every storm in life. They’ll learn to hold onto God’s promises when they are lonely, they worry, they struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless.”  REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
