    Bill & Maxine Harris                             David shared that Christians should see the cowboy community like other
    Geneva Kitchens                               cultures and unreached people groups. The goal is to reach more people for
    James & Parnice Lester                        Christ, and this segment of the population can be better reached by offering
    Sara Martin                                   these churches to them. Cowboy churches are doing all things the New
    Tammie McGee                                  Testament teaches — baptizing people, developing disciples, giving to
    Barry & Peggy Medley                          missions and fellowship.
