Cowboy Church

The Cowboy Church movement is designed to reach a certain people group, which has its own cultural norms.

This church building was located in a barn, which is in the middle of a working ranch.  Right outside the door of the church was an Australian Cattle Dog and a horse.

Their belief system is typical for a Christian church.  The main difference is in how they package it and teach the members to apply it to their  own life.

Redneck History

I was wondering about redneck history, so I did a little research.

Redneck is often used as a derogatory term for rural white Americans that are seen as low class, poor, and uneducated.

The term was originally used to characterize farmers, because they often had sunburns on the back of their necks from spending hours working in the fields.

In the early 1900s, the word “redneck” was used to designate a political faction within the democratic party.  Supporters of this faction wore red bandanas to rallies and other events.

Today, the word isn’t always used in a negative way.  It can be used to describe anyone that lives in a rural area, enjoys being outdoors, or drives a truck.
