Shelburne ordained at Cowboy Fellowship

Adam Shelburne, children’s minister and discipleship director of the Cowboy Fellowship in Atascosa County, was ordained into the ministry during Cowboy Fellowship’s first-ever church picnic Sept. 15.
Ordination is the process by which individuals are licensed to perform various religious rites and ceremonies, such as weddings and funeral services. The ordination process is a way for Shelburne to publicly acknowledge God’s call into the ministry. A panel of elders, lay pastors, and church staff members interviewed Shelburne and gave a unanimous recommendation for his ordination. Shelburne’s family and friends gathered to celebrate this important step in his ministry career.
Shelburne, formerly of Dallas, joined Cowboy Fellowship in 2010. A graduate of East Texas Baptist University and Southwestern Seminary, Shelburne is the youngest of three children.
Shelburne’s ordination was the climax of a day that included a church service, potluck lunch, and outdoor events for all ages.
If you are looking for a church home for yourself or your family, plan to visit Cowboy Fellowship next Sunday. Services begin at 10:45 a.m. and everyone is welcome. Coffee and donuts are served from 9:45-10:30 a.m. Nursery facilities and Children’s Church are offered for the kids. For more information, call 830-769-3733 or visit www.cowboyfellowship.org.
