Welcome to “the village” indeed, for Houston’s Windsor Village United Methodist Church (UMC) is far more than just an average church.

With extensive programs of multi-faceted outreach, care, and interaction with its community, it is no wonder that at nearly 15,000 members, it is the country’s largest United Methodist Church. And with the release of the church choir’s debut album, “Welcome to the Village,” the rousing musical sounds heard weekly to members will soon be a part of the lives of Christians nationwide.
Produced by acclaimed hit-maker Sanchez Harley, two of the album’s eleven songs were written by Windsor Village’s Music Director Kathy Taylor-Brown, as well as various members of the church’s music staff.
Kathy was born and raised in Houston. With a God-given gift for music and piano, Kathy succeeded her mother as the pianist at the family’s church at a young age. She studied music at Texas Southern University and was assistant music director for Windsor Village for 12 years before becoming full-time director in 2001.
Windsor Village UMC soars across the musical spectrum with genres that include anthems, praise and worship, traditional and contemporary gospel. On an album of 11 stand-out songs, several shine particularly brightly.
“Lord, I Want to Know You” is irresistibly catchy with a modern R&B feel, which, Kathy says, “expresses our desire that everyone come to know the Lord in a very personal and intimate way.”
“I Have A Right to Praise Him” has high-energy and an R&B hook that almost demands dancing and rejoicing. “The song simply says that it’s our right and our privilege to praise God,” proclaims Kathy, “because He has done so many great things for us, far greater than we could ever do for ourselves.”
