Who We Are

Preachers Dave and Kathleen Simmons

Cowboy Church Ministries (CCM) is a ministry dedicated to serving and ministering to cowboys in their own environment. David & Kathleen Simmons are both ordained ministers of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and are called to “Missions”. This call is both here in the United States and in many other parts of the world. Our mission is to present to people the challenge of receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior.

The mission statement that the Lord has given us is “Cowboy Church Ministries Training People To Be Leaders Through Discipleship”. The ministry includes many different areas such as, horse shows, rodeos, roping events, reined cow horse events and auction yards. We also have pioneered several cowboy church as well as have and are currently training people to do ministry at events all over the world. David has taught in mission schools in Taiwan. David and Kathleen have been invited to the Philippians, Nigeria, Chile and several other countries to teach discipleship that we may as a people fulfill Luke 10:2 “Then He said to them, "The harvest truly [is] great, but the laborers [are] few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

We have been blessed with the ability and favor to hold church services and bible studies at such places as United States Team Roping Championships, Rope America, National Reined Cow Horse Association, Group W, Country Christmas at National Finals Rodeo to name a few.

Kid’s Church is another area of tremendous growth in the ministry of CCM, Praise God! Kathleen has a burden for these children and has provided a way for them to come to know Jesus and grow in their knowledge of Him.

A new area for us since April of 2001 is an outreach into the motorcycle world. We are Area Leaders for Chariots Of Light Motorcycle Ministry and have had tremendous results at bike rallies and outreaches that we are apart of across the country. Each of the ministries have one thing in common, there are people that may not ever go inside a church other wise but they are hearing the Gospel of Christ in the streets from CCM where they are just as Jesus did.

Another tool that God has provided the way for, in 2001 CCM was able to purchase a Gospel Tent that we use for Rodeo Bible Camps, Camp Meetings, and even for the start of new churches for an interim place to meet.
