Allen Bach, 4x World Champion team roper and founder of Smarty Roping, along with his wife, Peggy Ruth, established Forever Cowboys Ministry in 2006. Their hearts were to encourage and challenge others to trust Jesus in all aspects of life. Allen’s favorite verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, provides the foundation that started the ministry and continues to be a truth for Forever Cowboys today.
If I could tell you one thing that would stick with you forever? Build your confidence in Jesus. The more confidence you have in Jesus, the stronger your faith will grow.
Forever Cowboys is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on maximizing the Cowboys' influence to impact the world by launching new initiatives focused on the future of our nation. Our vision is to help others build a relationship with Jesus in our Cowboy Community and beyond. We do this by hosting camps to bring up young rodeo pros and teach them the basics of roping while learning the gospel. We also host several events to raise awareness about our nations broken foster care system and its connection to human trafficking. Did you know that over 70% of trafficked victims come out of the foster system. We have decided to stand up and speak out to promote and protect the future of our cowboy heritage and our nation. So we utilize the influence of the cowboys and our culture to stop human trafficking and support children that are aging out of foster care so we can reduce this number to 0%.
Our main programs are Forever Cowboy Camps, Build Safe Houses, Sponsor a Camper, Sponsor the Young Pro Journalist team, Cowboy Christmas, the Longest Runway, and Legacy of the West Gala which brings fans and athletes of the sport together to celebrate the legacy of the rodeo community and build awareness for the survivors of trafficking and sexual exploitation and get them the help they need to receive safe housing, counseling, and life and work skills development.
