Riding High Ministries
Todd Pierce of Shelley, Idaho (pop. 3,885), hung up his spurs several years ago to answer a call to the ministry as a rodeo pastor. As an ordained, non-denominational minister affiliated with Pro Bull Riding Outreach, a Christian ministry for rodeo contestants, he travels to competitions all over the world.
Riders especially relate because Pierce has lived their lifestyle. He successfully competed as a bareback rider in Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association events for seven years, finishing third in the world in amateur standings his first year and later winning the Wilderness Circuit title three times.
