Biker event today at Crossroads Church

From Staff Reports
The Atlanta-area Unity Ride Planning Team is holding a Biker Unity Training Event today at Crossroads Church.
Hours for the free event will be from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. General topics will include leadership, motorcycle ministry, evangelism and spiritual growth. The day is planned to help Christian bikers be better leaders, stronger Christians, better bikers and better servants.
Christian bikers from all over the state have been invited to take part in the day of worship, prayer, training and fellowship.
Unity Ride Planning Team is a group of leaders from nine area motorcycle ministries. Primary leadership is provided by CMA Blessed Riders of Newnan, Crossroads FAITH Riders of Newnan and Redeemed Biker Church of McDonough.
Unity Ride Planning Team previously planned and organized large-scale Unity Rides in 2008 and 2009 – both to benefit Angel Tree. Smaller Unity Prayer Rides were also held in 2010 and 2011.
The group has also supported Colors for the Cross Bikefest – another Christian Unity effort –when it was in Tifton. Last September, the Colors for the Cross Bikefest moved their locale to Selma, Ala.
Unity leadership “decided to try a single day training event,” said team member Sam Connor. “The event is intentionally planned for a week prior to Daytona Bike Week, so we can pray for the workers and motorcycle ministries that will be serving in Daytona.”

The main goal of the event “is to get bikers from many different motorcycle ministries and churches to come together and worship, fellowship, pray together, learn together – and even ride together,” Connor said. Participants will also go to a restaurant together for lunch.

Ron Baptiste, founder of Covenant Confirmers Ministry in Springfield, Tenn., and Curtis Jamieson, international president of Heaven’s Saints Motorcycle Ministry, will be speaking. Seminar leaders will include Connor, Ron LaSocha, Nathaniel Long, Brick Mason, Greg Moen, Dr. Marc Merritt, Mike Patterson, Dr. Phil Pilgrim and Chip Zamboni.

“A prayer ride is scheduled before lunch, where the group will ride to four locations, with a different prayer focus at each location,” Connor said. “We’ll pray for families, our government, our military and leaders, our schoolteachers and school children, businesses and our economy, churches and motorcycle ministries.”
