Bible.org Visits the Cowboy Fellowship Church in Jourdanton, Texas
Despite the 6 hours of driving and the heat and humidity this promised to be an awesome experience. In a county with a population of 50,000 people, a thousand of them go to this church. Cowboy Fellowship in Jourdanton, Texas, is located on 18 acres of land with two large buildings. One is the church itself which holds over a thousand people with additional space for an office and classrooms. The other is a fully covered outdoor arena where you can find people roping and doing rodeo. A few smaller buildings are also used as classrooms depending on what events are taking place.
Bible.org had the opportunity to meet Pastor Pete and Pastor Scotty and enjoy a morning of "Cowboy" church. Their praise band played a variety of songs that sounded like a Who's Who of country music. It had to be the best Christian country music heard in a church, and YES--they used a horse trough for their baptisms.
After church Bible.org gave a presentation on how to use the NET Bible Online Study Tool. (A.K.A. The Environment) and showed the congregation how to use all the Bible.org resources that are available. The people were "happier than a pig in mud"
Cowboy Fellowship is a fully "NET Bible Church." Pastor Pete preaches from the NET Bible and you can find NET Bibles in their book store. If your church is interested in becoming a NET Bible church, or would like more information on all the resources available from Bible.org please feel free to contact us.
