Our Story

How it all started...

Rafter Cross Cowboy Church Started under a pavilion in a horseman park during the summer of 2006.
since the early days, the mission of rafter cross has been to reach cowboys, farmers, and anyone appealed to the western culture for Christ. This is why Rafter Cross has partnered with the American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches (AFCC) since 2008, and also with Cowboy Life Ministry in recent years.

Our building in Williston, FL was opened in 2012--and has been open ever since. We love being an open place of worship, in every sense of the word. With open walls, we are refreshed by God's creation and reminded how limitless Christ truly is.

Expanding the vision...

we believe in going beyond the walls and limitations of a building, and reaching out to the community as disciples of Christ. This is why we love our arena as a powerful mission field.

From sorters to ranch cowboys to barrel racers and ropers, we are glad to host and serve folks with every interest. Even if you don't own a horse or know much about rodeo events, we love using our arena for educational clinics and mission opportunities throughout the year.

Where we are headed...

With an ever-growing arena ministry and new faces every week, we can't wait to see what God has in store for Rafter Cross! Our rural region is spread out and isolating, which is why we love being a central hub for our people to gather, have fun, and learn more about Jesus.

We hope that you will join us! We want you exactly as you are -- because that's how Christ loves you, unconditionally.
