Jim Matthews, Pastor
Jim and his wife Debbie have three children; daughter Jennie and her husband Ryan Beltz , son Ryan Matthews and youngest daughter Katie Matthews who all live in Jackson. You don't have to be around him long until you also hear about his grandsons, Conner & Cole Beltz .
In addition to having a history in the pastorate, he has also been training horses since high school. So when the Lord laid upon his heart to start a cowboy church it was an easy call for him to follow. You will typically find Bro. Jim's style of preaching down to earth, seasoned with simple biblical truths that help you walk with our Lord in everyday life.
Even though Bro. Jim loves to hunt and fish, since the birth of cowboy church, these passions have had to take a back seat to this pastorate, the cowboy culture and helping others plant cowboy churches in their communities.
Todd Mills, Minister of Music
Todd Mills has been the Music Minister at Cape County Cowboy Church since 2005. He has been able to express his love and passion for God and music through this position.
Todd married Lisa in 1994 and they have three children, Whitleigh, Landon and Rylee. The Mills’ family make their home in Jackson and are very excited to be a part of such a growing, family-focused community.
Todd’s singing was inspired by his mother, LeeAnn who has also blessed many people with her voice. She encouraged Todd to be part of a youth choir in 1988 and from that point on, his life was changed. Todd and his brothers began singing at local churches and then were asked to be the House Group at Silver Dollar City in 1997. After that, the Southern Brothers traveled from 1998 to 2001 performing over 200 dates a year. This of course, was hard for a daddy and husband and it was then Todd decided to take a break from traveling to be able to focus on his family. In 2003, Todd returned to the Southern Brothers where he remains to this day with the focus on God, family and church.
Denah Siebert, Minister of Education
Denah was born and raised in Morley, Missouri. It would be in this small town that she would first learn about Jesus. Sitting Sunday after Sunday in the small Baptist church Denah fell in love with the Christ of the Scriptures. Her life was forever changed when she invited Him to take up residence in her heart.
In 1989 Denah would marry Roger and move to Millersville, Missouri and a year later the Lord added Colby to the family. Denah soon graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a degree in Agriculture/Business. As a young wife and mother, Denah began to develop a deeper love and appreciation of the Scriptures. It was during this time that she sensed God calling her to share her passion for God and His Word with others by teaching and leading Bible studies.
Always seeking to follow God’s plan, Denah in 2004, along with several others began Cape County Cowboy Church with the purpose to reach those “who live in and long for the cowboy way of life”. Denah serves on staff at Cape County Cowboy Church as Minister of Education, passionately serving the Lord. Denah serves this ministry by coordinating the vast army of volunteers, leading the Small Group ministry, planning fellowship and educational programs, encouraging and promoting spiritual growth, and sharing her passion to see people come to know and love God through studying His Word.
