Save the Cowboy, founded by Kevin Weatherby in 2011, is a 501(c)3 non-profit, faith-based working ranch dedicated to teaching authentic, everyday Christianity through the legacy, artistry, and traditions of the working ranch cowboy.
Our vision is to take these six values, put them together, and introduce CHRIST to the world.
Our mission is to keep the Gospel message simple without being shallow. We call it a "meat & tators" approach.
Kevin Weatherby, founder of Save the Cowboy, was at a loss when asked to preach the very first time. He went to the Bible and found where Paul said, "When I was with you I vowed to preach nothing except Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2)". Kevin had his subject, but needed a delivery so he kept searching the Bible. The person he models his sermons after was Jesus himself. Jesus spoke in stories, or parables, and if Kevin has any gift, it is for telling a story.
Stories take the place of sermons and lives begin to change from the inside out.
Go now and recruit riders for my brand from all over the world, baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, teachin’ them to ride the way I have taught y’all. And remember this, I am always with you, even to the very end of every trail.”
Matthew 28:19-20 (Simplified Cowboy Version)
Statement of Beliefs
There is only one true God revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ was both man and God.
The Holy Spirit is the power of God by which all gifts are given to those who God alone determines.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God revealing the trail and purpose of mankind.
The Church is the Body of Christ and is made up of those people that have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and this Church's mission is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
There are two ordinances: Baptism by immersion at an age of accountability and the Lord's Supper.
Those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, in all His richness and glory, have a heavenly place prepared for them, while those who reject the sacrifice of Christ will fall under God's judgment by their choice and spend eternity in hell.
Save the Cowboy expensed over 85% of total expenditures for outreach and evangelistic services directed at reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Matthew 28:19-20 by having an outward focus and mission and meeting the physical needs of people all over the world.
Save the Cowboy strives to ensure that all fundraising efforts clearly portray the purpose of the funds to be raised and that all contributions received are used for those purposes.
