We aid in planting country churches so those who may have never attended church, can become a part of churches they feel comfortable in and can get to know and grow in Christ.
How to Get Involved:
- Pray that the Lord will turn the hearts of sponsor churches, church planting pastors and associational leaders to move swiftly in planting these churches.
- Find someone in your church who has a Western Heritage background and encourage them to attend AFCC School for Cowboy Church Planting. These schools meet 4 times a year.
