White Horse M/M Roll-Out Weekend

What a special and exciting time it was over the weekend of August 22-23, 2015 as White Horse M/M, our newest affiliate of Greater Johnstown Christian Fellowship, introduced their ministry to the church body during 3 worship services.  The Holy Spirit was present and confirmed His calling on Ed Berringer and his wonderful wife, Sue, as the congregation joined in supporting and the commissioning of this amazing couple.

White Horse M/M Roll-Out WeekendSeven years ago, Ed was involved in a serious motorcycle accident when stopped at a traffic light and hit by a motorist from behind at approximately 40 mph.  Paralyzed, Ed went through all the struggles of a painful recovery, complete life change, stress on marriage and family – a true test of God’s faithfulness and victory over Satan’s attempt to destroy his life.  Aided by a fellow church member who contributed toward the cost of equipping a motorcycle with hand controls, Ed mounts his bike, stows his wheelchair in a sidecar, waits as Sue climbs aboard, and off they go to serve their Lord and King, Jesus Messiah.

whiteHorse02Please join all of us at Fellowship Riders in praying for this new work of the Lord and for these who have answered His call to ministry.  If you are in the neighborhood, that would be anywhere within 1,400 miles or so of Johnstown, stop in and share the fellowship and friendship of White Horse Motorcycle Ministry found at Greater Johnstown Christian Fellowship.  What Satan meant for evil, God meant for good.

Ministry Highlight – Keystone Cruisers for Christ

Ministry Highlight – Keystone Cruisers for Christ

To quote Pastor Mark Sawyer of another affiliate in Pennsylvania “In our wildest dreams we never realized just how God could use a motorcycle ministry. The doors keep swinging open to His glory!!  In the months since this group was officially launched in September 2014, they have hosted a Safety Training/Bike Blessing event, participated in several local biker and civic events, “The “Wings” always draw attention and open doors to speak about our Savior”, and had a very successful Ride for Missions to fund their Manna Ministry for the year with 62 riders touring 7 covered bridges.

To not limit the reach of Fellowship Riders to the USA and Canada, Keystone Cruisers for Christ has enrolled Pastor Darren Rogers of the Bethany Baptist Church, a visiting pastor from Pontypridd, Wales, UK, as a member of their group, “We bought him a vest, had the wings sewn on the back and made him an honorary member of Keystone Cruisers For Christ.”

Our newest Fellowship Riders affiliate, West Park Church of Christ in Virginia Beach, VA, used a popular 5K community event called “Spring to Life” that attracts hundreds of participants and families; many of them unchurched; to promote interest in dozens of outreach ministries  – among them their motorcycle ministry.

Steve Wiley, the leader of their Fellowship Riders ministry, is the organizer for this event and provided the picture of their tent and highlighted his H-D Road King with the Fellowship Riders flag, just in case anyone was wondering what he rides.

 

Observations by Jeff Wadley during a recent prison run

wadleyOne particular young man I visited with started to leave and go back into the prison from the yard when the invitation began; I reached out and shook his hand and stopped him.

I asked him, “Do you have a spiritual belief?”, his reply was, ” sort of”.
Then I asked him,” If your sister, wife, brother or whomever picked you up the day of your release and on your way home you were hit by a truck and killed, and found yourself standing in front of Jesus and He said to you, ” Why should I let you into my heaven?, What would you say?.
His reply was,” I don’t think I would get that far.”
I also asked him,” Would you like to know the truth?” and then, I explained this scenario; Continue reading

Hello to all Fellowship Riders from your new affiliate in St. Johns, Florida

fultonWhat an absolutely awesome job God has done here in Northern Florida.Our ministry has been in existence for only a month and we are on the move ‘creating that rumble’ at our church. I started this ministry with an open mind and an open heart to let God direct every move in this ministry. I received my start up kit and 2 weeks later, we had our first ride. I only had talked to two other people and only one was actually interested at that time, so my plan was to have a ride with myself and one other person. I felt that if God wanted more people to be there, He would make that happen! Continue reading
