Several years ago some of the founders of the CMN saw 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.
CMN was formed and presented in 2004. The founding board is made up of Glenn and Ann Smith, and David and Kathleen Simmons. There is a vast amount of ministry experience; over 80 years among these ministers. These ministries represent both traveling and pastoral ministries. Upon Glenn’s graduation to Heaven, his spiritual son Corey Ross and wife Jaime filled that place along with Ann, David, and Kathleen.
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 your life in doing the work of the Lord, and to assist those starting out in ministry.
We have seen that coming to pass and are experiencing growth each year and seeing the fruit in ministries and churches as we grow together.
