Competitors from across the country squared off with some of the toughest bulls and steers in the business at the 3rd Annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Rodeo, held Friday and Saturday on the Wilson County Fairgrounds.
The event is likely to bring in thousands of dollars for FCA, but a total is unavailable at press time. Ed Barber of Mending Fences Cowboy Church, which organizes the rodeo, said it was their largest turnout to date and that a dollar estimate could solidify on Tuesday.
“We’re really appreciative of our partnership with the local churches in Wilson County, and just the faithfulness of people in our county as well,” Wilson County FCA Area Director Tim Bryant said. “I’m also really appreciative of Ed Barber and the Mending Fences Cowboy Church. In today’s time with the conflicts and social unrest, and everything with Black and White, it’s just refreshing for us to be able to reach across the aisle with each other.”
