should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can
be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare
it with what someone else has done.
would like to share a quote from Dr. Gibson: "Chaplain Fellowship
Ministries will not judge you, belittle you or criticize you for
your past, or your lack of a formal education. Please understand
it takes all of us to get the job done, just as Jesus recruited
many from different backgrounds. It does not take a college graduate
to walk into a biker bar full of bikers, in fact we would not
advise it, it takes a biker who has been there"
were Jesus' top priority. He involved Himself in the lives of
people who were considered the worst of sinners, and He met them
where they had needs. In doing so, He helped elevate their sense
of self worth. One of the ways Jesus gave worth to the people
was by showing them their value in God's eyes, by comparing God's
care for other creatures with His care for them.
authority of Jesus was opposed because He was a poor carpenter's
son from the village of Nazareth.
Spiritual enemies also include false teachers. We must be extremely
cautious about whom we listen to. Never let anyone tell you that
you are not good enough or smart enough to follow the Lords' calling
in your lives.
Fellowship Ministries Biker Chaplaincy is a place for our Biker
Chaplains, in their own ministries, to be able to come for resources,
networking with others and provide an opportunity for Non-Clergy
to serve in the position of a Chaplain through specific chaplain
programs, endorsements and certifications in their chosen field
of ministry, thereby, allowing any one who feels called of God
to minister at some level as a Chaplain. Our Mission is to qualify,
equip, train and recognize those seeking Ministry ordination,
documentation, endorsement and certification. Chaplain Fellowship
offers training to anyone who feels they need it. Chaplain Bible
Institute offers great courses for one to pursue & study.

a Chaplain" by Dr. Sonny Fox.
those of us that live the Biker Lifestyle we all know: 1. RESPECT
Is Earned 2. HONESTY Is Appreciated 3. TRUST Is Gained
4. LOYALTY Is Returned. We all need Jesus as our Lord and Savior
in our everyday lives. He is the one who can lift us above the
degrading forces of evil in the world that tries to tell us we
are not good enough. It is Jesus who holds all things together,
including our lives. Become a member and receive your God given
right to ordination and license as a legal member of the clergy.
Take a leap of faith, and watch your whole world, and the way
you see thing, literally transform before your very eyes.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment
ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it
shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote
that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that
is in thine own eye? 4 or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let
me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is
in thine own eye?
most people think of bikers, they think of rough looking, scruffy,
hell raising men and women dressed in leather clad. These bikers
can be intimidating to look at. While this grizzly type of a biker
is a stereotype, there is a growing segment of the biker population
who may still look scruffy and wear the leather, but these men
and women are different, they are Christians.
a certain extent you could say it takes a biker to reach a biker.
Generally bikers are a close knit group of people; the common
bond of riding motorcycles transcends many cultural differences.
Bikers will generally listen to a fellow biker when they would
not give the same consideration to someone else. With more and
more Christians riding motorcycles the need for fellowship between
these brethren increases. As more bikers are reached, the fellowship
grows, as well as the effectiveness of the ministry as a whole.
of these bikers have always been Christian, others became Christian
after years of partying had landed them in rehab where they found
their higher power, and others became Christians in prison as
a result of prison ministry.
bikers come from a culture that is territorial, loyal, and mainly
patriotic and known for their all night parties, many bikers feel
embarrassed at many mainstream churches because they feel they
don't fit in and may be the subject of ridicule. As a result of
this, there are biker friendly Churches and Ministries popping
up around the world.
is no doubt, Christian bikers are a growing movement. They can
be found in your local church, on the road, at rallies and around
the world. They have a noble purpose to save the souls of their
But how can people call for help if they don't know who to trust?
And how can they know who to trust if they haven't heard of the
One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells
them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is
sent to do it?
