Mission: The mission of the youth ministry team at Ridin the River Cowboy Fellowship is to establish a foundation for building Christian character, morals, values and behaviors in young people from the western culture and beyond by using creative methods to excite, inspire, capture and ignite young people for Jesus. Our goal is to enable young people to understand and recognize who Jesus is and what it is to live for Him only.  Our youth team workers are able to respond to the social and spiritual needs of the youth within our church family by providing relative programs, activities, and events that will allow them to build a strong foundation of faith that will enable them to express and share their faith through their own words, actions and deeds; we encourage them to use their individual talents in programs and ministries that interest them in order to nurture their growth as people of faith.

We attend two (Teens & Pre-Teens) cowboy camps every year in Lueders, TX hosted by The American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches. Check with us for dates!

Media Team

Team Leader: Dennis Teitge
Contact: 954-632-3621

The Media Ministry Team’s mission is to serve as the “hub” for the wheels that keep our church on the trail to Jesus.  We have ten “spokes” in our wagon wheel that support and reinforce our church in spiritual growth.  These spokes gather, amplify, transmit, explain, inform, and educate the church body to promote spiritual growth focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, His Grace, and Mercy. 

Romans 12:4-6 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body.  We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

This team needs members to serve as the eyes, ears, and lips of the church.  So since, “In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.” Romans 12:6 , we invite you to employ your gift and join our spirit filled team in their mission to keep our church wagon moving along the trail.  Seize this opportunity to use your God given talents to exercise your Servants Heart.
