It's time for Burro Days in Fairplay and that means "Cowboy Church" at the Entertainment Gazebo in Fairplay on Sunday morning.
Circuit ridin' preacher Jack Bleasewill bring his exciting brand of "Cowboy Church" to Burro Days as he has since 1994. There will be lots of singin', preachin', praying', and fellowship. Last year's cowboy service had attendees singin' and laughin' and lovin' each other by the end of the celebration. This year's service promises to be even livelier than before. One year we even had a Cowboy wedding performed on horseback right after the service. Who knows what will happenthis year.
Jack Blease uses classic cowboy music, poetry, stories and preaching from God's word to capture the spirit of the Circuit Riding preachers on the frontier in the past. Jack has entertained audiences and shared his Cowboy ministry across the USA and Europe, in concerts, at festivals, ranches, churches and around campfires. He has lead worship services in such diverse settings as small rural churches and at festivals such as the Western Music Association, The National Cowboy Symposium and the Cheyenne Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Jack has been part of a special performance for the Governor. Blease has entertained at ranches and celebrations around the Fairplay area, including the annual "Cowboy Christmas Ball." Jack currently pastors Great Round Up Cowboy Fellowship and is the host of a new Cowboy Ministry internet radio show soon to be on the air.
Jack says "We take 'Cowboy Church' wherever people want to worship the cowboy way. Our congregations are made up of working cowboys, weekend cowboys, cowboy wanna-be's and just plain folks who love cowboy music, poetry and the history of the West. We look forward to worshiping with everybody at Burro Days this year."
