Our Pastor

Pastor Jeff W. Schuckers has had a relationship with God for as far back as he can remember. “I was brought up in a home with a mother and father who not only had relationship with God, but were also very active in their church. My first memories were being in church, learning about  God,  His Son and having good role models fostering my relationship with the Lord.  I’m so thankful that I found salvation by Grace through Faith, and my life belongs to God.”

Pastor Jeff grew up in Shreveport where he got his first job at the age of 14 managing a cow calf operation. With the help and direction of his father, the late Dr. Gordon Schuckers, he learned how to manage the cattle and hay operations. It was during those six years he learned the values of hard work, integrity and a job well done.


After high school, he attended LA Tech University and graduated with a BA degree from Northeast Louisiana University in 1991. In 1992 he moved to Denton TX and earned a masters degree from TWU. During the next decade, he devoted himself to building an understanding of the Word of God. In 2003, God profoundly changed the direction of his life with the birth of his son, Kolten and shortly after revealed to him the direction God had for him.


God was calling him into the ministry! Jeff enrolled in the Millennium Bible Institute, a non-denominational Bible school where he earned his graduate in Theology and became an ordained minister.  During those years, he met his wife Melanie. The two were married on New Years Eve in 2008. Since that time Pastor Jeff served at Valley View United Mehtodist Church, Spring Creek Cowboy Church and then with the calling and direction of God started Cooke County Cowboy Church. Pastor Jeff and his family also own and operate a Quarter horse ranch in Gainesville, Texas.
