On Sunday night I had the great privilege of commissioning Jeff and Sherry Copenhaver into an apostolic ministry. Ever since they were both saved in 1987, Jeff and Sherry have been rocking (or should I say roping) the rodeo world. They have ministered the kingdom the God in the most powerful of ways.
Jeff is the "1975 Worlds Champion Calf Roper". He is the son of two-time World Champion Deb Copenhaver. He and his father are rodeo's first father and son World Champions. Jeff has trained champion tie down and breakaway ropers for over 30 years, in the U.S. and Canada. He has also trained champions in Australia and Cuba. In 1986 Jeff and Sherry started America's first Cowboy church at Billy Bobs in the historic Fort Worth stockyards. No longer pastoring after 24 years, Jeff and Sherry are now traveling nationally and internationally teaching roping schools and motivating others to be champions for God in their world. You can find out more about Jeff and Sherry at their website: http://www.themasterschampions.org/
Representing the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network, I joined Merrie Cardin (TXAPN Council Member from Granbury - Rolling Plains Region) in sending forth Jeff and Sherry into a new place of authority and responsibility. There is a strong anointing on this couple. They have touched thousands of lives with their love of Jesus. And they have only just begun.
