Allen & Peggy Bach
Allen Bach is a four-time World Champion Team Roper. Allen’s victories, in both his rodeo career and his personal life, have been momentous. In his 30+ years as a PRCA cowboy he has, according to ProRodeo Sports News, “cemented himself as a future Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer and built a reputation as one of the greatest team ropers of all time.” Despite his professional accomplishments, Allen Bach states “rodeo in and of itself would leave you pretty empty if that’s the only purpose you had for your life.” Peggy, Bach’s wife of forty- years, and their children Joel, Tyler, April, and Erica, provide that extra purpose. So too does Bach’s recent ordination to the Christian ministry. Alongside some of his fellow timed event competitors, Bach runs “Forever Cowboys,” a faith-based ministry emphasizing moral values, athletic and spiritual growth, and the cowboy code of behavior. “I have just felt that God has impressed it on me to serve Him,” Bach states.
