Statesman and Elder
In October 2004 Sid and Debra Miller along with Wayne and Deb Shaw of Dublin, Texas and Pastor Charles Higgs founded the Cowboy Church of Erath County with the mission to reach out to cowboys, cowgirls and others in the western heritage culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Cowboy Church of Erath County has an interesting story of originally meeting in the Stephenville Sale Barn and then the local Hispanic Baptist Church. Once outgrowing these facilities the church moved its location again to a Stephenville based restaurant until it finally opened its permanent doors at the current location on Highway 67 right outside of the Stephenville city limits. The Cowboy Church of Erath County has over 800 members with nearly 2,000 attendees on Easter Sunday. The church offers two Sunday Services, a college night every Monday, numerous Bible Studies on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday nights. The facility also is home to several rodeo arenas, calf chutes, and break away pens. Upon arrival to a Sunday Service at the Cowboy Church of Erath County one would be greeted by a Welcoming Posse on horseback!

Debra also teaches in the K-6th grade youth Sunday school program. Sid’s youngest son Joseph, his wife Kelly, and Sid’s granddaughter Mabry Miller also attend the Cowboy Church.
