All About Ted K Pressley

Brother Ted, as he is affectionately called, is doing his part to obey Jesus' command to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." Backed and supported by loyal members of CFC, he appears at meetings, conventions, TV shows, rodeos, groups, churches, and other scheduled appointments in his cowboy boots, Levis, and Stetson hat to proclaim
the Word of God.

Brother Ted is the editor/publisher of the Christian Ranchman, a Christian livestock tabloid newspaper that shares the Word of God through testimonies from its readers all over the world. The newspaper is circulated throughout the U.S., Canada, and many other foreign countries.

Besides preaching and publishing, Brother Ted is also the author of many Gospel Tracts, Bible Studies, and a syndicated column entitled, "Rule Book Talk" that is published monthly in many livestock magazines and newspapers.

After answering the Lords' call to preach, he attended and graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. He has pastored two churches and had a radio broadcast in the Rocky Mountains called "Cowboy Chapel."
It has not always been this way. Before he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and accepted the call to preach, he had a diverse background as a rodeo hand, horse trainer, ranch manager, resort motel manager and a Florida bar/nightclub manager.

After becoming born again, he founded Cowboys for Christ in 1970 with a small, but dedicated, group of supporters working with cowboys in the rodeo profession. The ministry grew and expanded into all aspects of the livestock industry and is now reaching into 29 countries.

God in continuing to open new doors for the ministry to serve and share Jesus.
