Incorporating God With Motorcycle Riding

Incorporating God With Motorcycle Riding

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told that my club is a “gang” and that all of us motorcycle groups are bad people. Let me tell you something-we are more than just a club. We group up together with other clubs to organize rides or “runs” for charity and all different causes. You may not know it, but there is an association called the Christian Motorcyclists Association. They’re a chapter of Christian motorcycle riders who put their helmets on, like the ones on this site, and they are set out to make a difference just like us.

About The Christian Motorcyclist Association

This amazing chapter is a ministry that has a strong commitment to change the world “one heart at a time”. They have a firm belief that God is calling out to them to do what they can to help those who have become lost in their ways to find Jesus again and to grow close to him. In 1974, a man by the name of Herb Shreve attended a motorcycle rally and saw just how many people attended them and realized that almost none of them knew Jesus Christ as their Savior. So, he made it his mission to reach motorcyclists with the Gospel of Jesus Christ with his religious freedom. In 1975, he started the non-profit charter known as the CMA.

What Do They Do?

Since the 1970’s, they have had over 160,000 applicants to join their organization and there are over 1,200 chapters in the United States. Not only are they here, but they are also recognized and grouped all over the world. Once you are approved for their organization, you are put through their program that is meant to make ministers out of their members. They have also been taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the prisons of America.


When the CMA has their state, regional, and national rallies, it is a time for fellowship, worship, and praise. They also play amusing bike games and speak words of encouragement, which everybody needs every once in awhile. In a way, we are kind of like this group. We have our rallies and rides for various causes to raise awareness for cancer, child abuse, lost lives, etc.

Their Ride Plan

The CMA has a very detailed ride plan for everybody, but it’s not your typical ride plan.

  • “I have come that they might have LIFE and have it to the fullest!” John 10:10. This is step one.
  • “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” Proverbs 16:25. Consider your destination. Don’t take a beautiful road that’ll lead to death. This is also true for your spiritual ride.
  • Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”, John 14:6. If something is separating you from your destination that cannot be overcome, you’re spiritual ride is done.


Contrary to what some may think, we aren’t set out to start trouble, make noise, be rowdy, nothing like that. Sure, some clubs may do that, but you shouldn’t have that mindset for everyone. The CMA proves that there are wonderful motorcyclists in the world who just want to make it a better place.
