Jeff Copenhaver, World Champion Calf Roper and founder of the world’s first "Cowboy Church," will be providing a live roping demonstration on Thursday, March 22, at the 64th Annual 3i SHOW.

Starting at 10:30 a.m. in the Special Events Arena, Cody Stromberg and the Dodge City Community College Rodeo Team will assist Copenhaver with this clinic, demonstrating basic roping horsemanship and how to build a catch loop as well as tie-down groundwork. Copenhaver will discuss with attendees how to create a plan that works for their specific dream and how rodeo principles can be applied to everyday life.

As founder of the world’s first "Cowboy Church," Copenhaver has been sharing the good news of the gospel for more than 28 years.

Established in the Fort Worth Stockyards at Billy Bob’s Texas in the bull riding arena back in 1986, he has launched out to teach the lessons of God by reaching the western world, rodeo world, and beyond.
