Pastor Jonathon "Jed" Linebaugh
TEL (319) 795-1166

Pastor Jed Linebaugh, son of the former pastor, Dr. Dale Linebaugh, was asked to take the position of pastor after his father‘s passing in March of 2022.

He has pastored churches from Kentucky to Alaska for over 46 years. And, he has been married to Debra Saint Linebaugh for 42 years.

They have three children, all married to godly spouses and all serving in the ministry along with 9 grandchildren.

He has his Bachelor’s degree in Bible, Christian Education, and Psychology from William Jennings Bryan College in Dayton Tennessee. His Masters is also in Christian Education specializing in Church Planting.

Pastor Jed is fundamental in his doctrine and evangelical in his methods.

He grew up on a ranch/camp with over 100 head of Quarter horses and cattle but today you may see him catching the wind on his Harley Davidson or restoring a vintage car.

He and his wife, since their first inspirational trip to Israel in 1997, have continued to take other pilgrims on tours of the Holy Land. Pastor Jed loves the visual aid and cultural understanding of the Bible that these tours give believers but also the depth of purpose that the Bible conveys because of these factors.

His favorite verse comes from Hebrews 11:6
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him,for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (NKJV)

We pray that God will direct you to Cowboy Church of Elgin & Apache (CCEA) according to His will, and grow you where HE has planted you!                       

In memory of Pastor, Dr. Dale Linebaugh

Pastor, Dr. Dale Linebaugh  

The Holy Spirit used the song “Where He Leads Me I Will Follow” to bring Dale under deep conviction of sin, leading to his conversion. The song was used of the Spirit a year and a half later to bring Dale to the consecration of his life to Christ as a minister.

I Will Followhas been the goal and passion of his life from that moment. The conviction to follow Christ was strengthened by a study of Caleb in the Old Testament. Of Caleb, it was written that “he wholly followed the Lord.” Dale has never sought a pastorate, evangelistic campaign, mission-field opportunity, or the presidency of the former Practical Bible College, but God gave them to him anyway. Christ had promised to open doors no man could shut and shut doors that no man could open. For seventy years the “adventure” has continued, and the marvel of it all has never worn off. 

His work on earth is done.
