How RUCC Got It’s Start

Pastor Larry & Lisa Eastman started Round Up Cowboy Church in Blue Ridge in July 2011.  Then, in August 2013 God led the growing congregation to a great location just down the road.  It was a worn-out hay barn on twenty-one acres in Farmersville–that suited folks well.

He had been heavily involved in ministry since 1985 until he was ready for a much lighter load.  For the last several years his passion, his focus and his energy have been on following God’s will for Round Up Cowboy Church. “Lead On Lord” became the catch phrase as we all trusted God to lead us on.  And, HE did.  That passion to follow God isn’t over, but the passion to work hard turned to a greater passion to play hard when Pastor Larry retired in August 2017.

Pastor Larry said God blessed RUCC in ways we could never have imagined– in extraordinary ways…with blessings beyond measure.  It had been his Mission to follow God and welcome all His people. He preached God’s word from the Bible and talked about what is relevant for living a Christian lifestyle. His taught his flock to worship God in an atmosphere of love and acceptance–in a country casual sorta way.  It was his passion, and Pastor Larry served God and all his people well. On September 1, 2017 Pastor Larry retired and turned the reins over to Rick Emmert.

Pastor Larry’s last words from the pulpit were his favorite, “Happy Trails!”
