The Metropolitan Baptist Church (The MET) is one church that meets in multiple locations. They currently have campuses on Jones Road in Northwest Houston and on Fry Road in Cypress. At each campus one will experience a welcoming environment, engaging teaching, and excellent worship. The MET is an eclectic community of people and their stories. There is a basic reason they exist – to go and make disciples of Jesus, who go and make disciples of Jesus – The MET believes this to be the highest function of any community of faith.


The purpose of The MET Kids Ministry is to help children initiate and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ, to draw families to the heart of God, and to grow a team of children's ministers who are passionate and equipped to reach the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
