Pastor Bryn Thiessen

Sundre, Alberta

Participating in Cowboy Church

Bryn Thiessen has read his cowboy poetry at rodeos and cowboy festivals across western Canada for many years. With his handlebar mustache and unique hat, he is a well-known and beloved figure in the western community. He’s conducted hundreds of marriages and preaches weekly at the Cowboy Church Trail in Cochrane, an evangelical Christian Fellowship committed to reaching people who love the Western way of life.

His services lean on the cowboy side, Gospel music in a cowboy style and as the church says on its website “enjoy worshipping in an atmosphere of informal fellowship where boots and hats are welcomed.”

As Pastor Thiessen says, people seem to “love the open-handed, open-hearted style” of Cowboy Trail Church.
