A presentation of One Man Show Ministries

Return with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear!
Rev. Mark Winter will be at Ferris Heights United Methodist Church, Waxahachie on August 20, 2017, 10:00 a.m. to present “God’s Cavalryman,” a tribute to the circuit-riding preachers of the old frontier. Winter’s circuit rider, a fictitious Methodist parson named Obadiah Ryder IV, is
based on historical sources.

Winter set his post-Civil War preacher in Texas. His character is a fourth-generation
circuit rider, whose ancestors were Methodist preachers.

“God’s Cavalryman” is chock-full of good-natured humor, thrilling stories and audience
interaction. Rev. Winter’s appearance is straight out of the history books as he strides in
with a Western hat, dust-spattered coat and high boots, a saddlebag slung over one
shoulder. Congregations are also treated to pre-show narration with musical score that
gives lively historical background on the Methodist circuit riders.

Winter, who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, is a General Evangelist of the United Methodist
Church, using drama as his primary tool to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ.
He formed his One Man Show Ministries in 1999 as a “creative force for God.”
Writing about God’s Cavalryman, a United Methodist pastor in the Central Texas
Conference commented, “You not only grabbed people’s attention with humor and gusto,
you also reminded us of the sacrifices that were made to start our church and the
continuing call to reach out to the hurting and lost of the world, and ‘bring them to
