Corey and Jaime Ross have come alongside to serve on the founders board. Corey Ross, founder of Cowboy Ministries Outreach Center, has been serving the Lord as an evangelist for over 12 years, and has become well-known throughout the Professional Rodeo circuit, both as a Cowboy Preacher and for his feats in the Team Roping competitions.
Born in the early spring of 1969, in Casa Grande, Arizona, Corey Ross grew up living the cowboy lifestyle that many young cowboys dream about, working with his Dad on the 26-Bar Ranch for none other than John Wayne, the “Duke”. In 1989, Corey’s real life experience in the cowboy lifestyle paid off when he qualified for the College Nation Finals in the Team Roping events. Professional Rodeo has always been an important part of Corey’s life, but nothing can compare to the relationship he so freely sings and preaches about, all across the nation, as he tells them about Jesus.
Growing up in a singing household, a music ministry was a given for Corey, but at a young age Corey answered another call as well, the call to preach. Now, after pioneering several Cowboy Churches, recording a couple of music CD’s, and establishing himself as a successful Rodeo Cowboy Minister and Professional Rodeo Cowboy competitor, Corey finds himself called to pastor a wonderful bunch of folks in Liberty Hill Texas where they’ve formed the Williamson County Cowboy Church.
Now, together with his wife Jaime and his daughter Londyn and son Seth ,Corey travels the countryside, singing and preaching the uncompromising Word of God, always making it back in time for his new ‘home church’ at the Smiling V Ranch in Liberty Hill Texas. Corey continues to tell folks about that one special person that has changed his life … forever. For Corey Ross, there is only one way to doing what God has called him to do … by “preaching Jesus, Cowboy style!”
