About Go West

Many of us would say it takes guts and a little bit of crazy to step toe-to-toe with a powerful, 1,700 pound bull. For Hall-of-Fame bullfighter, Jeremy Sparks, it took faith.

Sparks' remarkable and illustrious journey began at a young age when he received a God-given calling to become a professional bullfighter. Soon after accepting a college scholarship for rodeo, he suffered a near-fatal electrocution, which, but for his faith in God, would have ruined his dream. After three years of training under a world champion, he was accepted into the elite Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and spent years tussling with raging bulls until God, once again, showed him another path.

While the terrorist attack on September 11th rocked the country, Sparks saw it as an invitation to serve. He enlisted just weeks after the attack, and earned his commission as a second lieutenant in the US Air Force and an endorsement from the Pentagon as the "only professional bullfighter in the history of the USAF."

Once a small town kid from Arkansas, now a Hall-of-Fame rodeo icon, Sparks is sharing his stories of strength and service. With God at the center of this fascinating story, Go West highlights the 10 Biblical principles that Sparks learned, experienced, and lived by as a professional bull fighter, officer in the armed forces, and follower of Jesus Christ.


“Jeremy Sparks witnesses to the rawness of rodeo bullfighting and the reality of God’s calling in Go West. Sparks’ story of passion, struggle, and commitment demonstrates that God has a plan, and, when we stray, there is always a path back.”
— Michael J. Carey Major General, USAF (Retired)

“Jeremy Sparks has done what few before him had —served his country while still responding to God’s call to Go West—‘Witnessing, Encouraging, Serving, and Testifying’—as a rodeo bullfighter. Go West will leave readers with a strong conviction to follow God’s lead.”
— Karl Stressman Commissioner, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association
