“Helping folks find ‘n follow Jesus along life’s through a cowboy church.”
“To be a church that not-church-folks love to come to, and church-folks love to bring ‘em to”.
Lead Pastor - Troy Gardner
Troy grew up working on his family’s Brangus cattle ranch in Burton (Willow Springs Ranch), but lived close enough to Brenham to attend school there. Once graduating high school, it seemed logical to start college at Blinn. After a year of college, Troy realized he really liked working with his hands, and ended up learning the trade of plumbing.
At 20 years old, Troy married his high school sweet heart, Amy. It didn’t take long after being married that Troy and Amy’s marriage starting to experience some challenges, but God got a hold of Troy that first Summer after being married, and it made all the difference. As a result, Troy went on to work in fulltime ministry in various capacities, including being the Operations Director for Faith Mission and Help Center. Troy and Amy live on 30 acres in Independence, and have 5 grown children. They love children, and while they sometimes wish they had more, they’re content to wait for grandbabies. Currently, Troy is on staff at Cowboy Church as the Lead Pastor.

In 2022, Pastor Marty and the Elders led the church into a succession plan bringing on Pastor Troy Gardner as Lead Pastor with Pastor Marty moving to a Teaching Pastor Role.
