Brother Werth Mayes

Brother Werth has been pastoring here at Cowboy Church of Erath County since August of 2007. He believes ministry is an ordained vocation, not a religious job. Ministry is unto God, through His people. It is loving people, leading people and walking with people.

  • Knapp Baptist Church

  • First Baptist Weinert

  • First Baptist Rotan and

  • Lake Side Baptist in Breckenridge

Brother Werth Mayes married Sadie Marie Lewis on January 2, 1988.  Sadie  was born April 8, to Bob and Marsha Lewis in Big Spring, Texas. Sadie  came to know the Lord as her savior at church camp in 1976. She attended Baylor University and Tarleton State University, graduating with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. 

They have two daughters: Lauren Faith and Mackensie Hope Mayes. Sadie has been privileged to work with children and youth  since she was in High School.
