Several years ago some of the founders of the CMN say a growing need to help the ministries that were called to the Western world. In 2003 the ministers that make up the Board of Founders came together to address that need and formally designed a ministry of helps. The best way to accomplish this was a ministry that would help promote relationship, a network of ministers, not the creation of a denomination. These ministers realize that relationships are necessary to keep ministry functioning in a healthy way.

The Cowboy Ministers Network (CMN) was formed and presented in 2004. The founding board is made up of Glenn Smith, Coy Huffman, Ronnie Trice and David Simmons. There is a vast amount of ministry experience, over 110 years among these ministers. These ministries represent both traveling and pastoral ministries.

Their desire is to see CMN become a true ministry of helps to the Cowboy/Western ministries, to help you reach your greatest potential to accomplish the call on you life in doing the work of the Lord and to assist those starting out in ministry.
