I Never Heard Of A Cowboy Church Until I Saw A Poster For One Coming To Cheyenne in February

What in the world is a Cowboy Church? I’ve heard of Church Of The Later Day Saints, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist and non-denominational services, but this is new to me. 

R.W. Hampton held the services last year at Cheyenne Frontier Days and now Cheyenne is getting it’s own Cowboy Church in February. I saw the poster at the Down Home Diner that a couple from Kansas were starting a Cowboy Church in Cheyenne. So of course I wanted to know what a Cowboy Church was. Very simple sermons in a rural setting usually in barns, metal buildings, arena, sale barn and other venues “out in the country”.

Prior to 1980 there were less than 5 Cowboy Churches in Texas. That number has grown to over 200 now. 750 cover the United States.  Some of these cowboy churches are an outgrowth of ministries to professional rodeo or team roping events, while the roots of many can be traced back to ministry events associated with ranch rodeos, ranch horse competitions, chuck wagon cooking competitions, cowboy poetry gatherings and other “cowboy culture” events.

There is no altar call, collection plate of tithing required in Cowboy Churches. We welcome this western, progressive style of outreach to Cheyenne next year.
