On Sunday, September 21, 2014, I was privileged to be present for the kick-off for our newest Fellowship Riders affiliate, Keystone Cruisers for Christ whose home church is New London Baptist Church in West Grove, PA.
In the time since, Pastor Mark Sawyer and his riders have participated in several community events in addition to organizing their first Angel Tree for Prisoner’s Children, one of the hallmark ministries of Fellowship Riders.

What 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.
