3rd Annual Bind The StrongMan

2

Our 3rd Annual Bind The Strongman was held in Eminence KY at the Eminence United Pentecostal Church on March 6 – 7. We had a nice turnout with people in attendance from as far away as South Carolina and several other states; Missouri, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and many from Kentucky. There was an awesome presence of the Holy Ghost all through the night. This year we had a live feed over the Internet and there were 74  people who logged in from 12 different states to watch and pray with us. We had many of our ASR chapter members that could not attend gather at their churches and pray through the night along with us.

This year Bro. Tony Stoddart from Joplin, MO preached the Saturday morning message following our all-night prayer. The Holy Ghost moved through the house. Bro. Stoddart is one of our newest members and is working to start a chapter in his hometown.

We are already looking forward to Bind The Strongman in 2016. Although the date and location have not been set at this time, plans should be finalized by this year’s ASR National Rally in Maryville, TN.

We would like to thank Pastor Robert Eades and the Eminence UPC for hosting Bind The Strongman this year. They did a wonderful job of taking care of us throughout the night.

Roar to the Shore Sept 5 & 6 2014, Wildwood, NJ

roartotheshore2014

It was a great outreach in Wildwood, NJ! We had several states represented (OH, NJ, KY, NY & PA). We want to thank Bro Artie Brown for allowing us to use his home so that ASR members had a place to stay.

We prayed with people that came to the booth and passed out flyers for the biker blessing.  Bro and Sis Curley went down at night to where the Pagans had their meeting and spoke to several people about the Lord. During the day Bro Storey, Bro Curley and Bro Klages walked through the vendor booths where all the bikers were to talk to them. The rest of us manned the booth. Later that night they had a prayer meeting at Bro Arties house and Bro Norman Knight received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost.

After the event I received a phone call from a couple who had my business card and requested prayer for her husband. They also want to come to our Chapter meeting to find out more about our ministry! This ministry truly works as an awesome outreach for Jesus Christ!

We are excited about next year. We plan to have church service  with Bro Curley preaching on Sunday and a biker blessing at the booth. We will also be prepared to baptize anyone that is seeking salvation. Please put this event on your calendar for next year (the first weekend after Labor Day, Sept 4 & 5, 2015).

July 30 through August 2, 2014; 4th Annual ASR International Rally 2014, Maryville, TN

photo (3)Azusa StreetRiders from 12 US states and Canada converged on First Apostolic Church (Pastor Kenneth Carpenter) in Maryville, TN for our only true annual “fellowship” event…All other events worldwide focus on outreach for Christ. We had rides (Google “Tail of the Dragon”) and events scheduled for each day and had 42 bikes on one “Dragon” ride!

We were blessed to have Pastor Cortt & Sis. Amanda Chavis (Truth Chapel, Loganville, GA) as our featured speakers for our three open-to-public night services. Attendance estimates were around 300-400 for each night and we were ministered to! Thank you Bro. & Sis. Chavis! These messages will soon be available for viewing on our ASR website…Listen to them…You will be blessed!

At our Azusa StreetRiders International business meeting Saturday, Bro. Robert Thompson (Maryville, TN Chapter) was re-elected Secretary and Rev. Todd Storey (Northern KY Chapter) was elected Vice-President. Two international appointments were also made…Rev. Julie McGhghy (Cincinnati, OH Chapter) was installed as ASR Ladies Chaplain and Bro. Michael Theodore (Ashtabula, OH Chapter) was installed as ASR Road Captain. Sis. McGhghy is available to assist with any issues specific to women and can be contacted via the ASR website, while Bro. Theodore will be assisting each chapter with their rides. Both have considerable experience for their respective positions and should be contacted as needed.

For their efforts and help with Azusa StreetRiders, Bro. & Sis. Carpenter and Bro. & Sis. Chavis were inducted as “Honorary Members” of Azusa StreetRiders and were each presented with a vest with our ASR backpatch stating such.

This past year our Azusa StreetRiders US and Canadian efforts resulted in funding for the purchase of two motorcycles for Brother Naimy (ALJC missionary to the Philippines) and a gift of $1,000 to ALJC’s World Missions Department.

At the business meeting, it was stressed that the funding goal for each ASR chapter is $1,000 annually for “Motorcycles for Missionaries.” Additionally, to help promote our efforts for Christ, we asked each member of ASR that is active on social media to promote us. On Facebook, our official name is “Azusa Street-Riders” and on Twitter, we are “@Azusa StreetRide”…We were asked to please “Like”, “Share” and “Retweet” info about our upcoming events that are promoted there and ask other to also “like” and “follow” us.

It was announced that the next “Bind the Strongman” all-night prayer event will be held at United Pentecostal Church (Pastor Robert Eades and ASR Member) in Eminence, KY on March 6, 2015. Prayer will start at 9:00 PM. This is Azusa StreetRiders’ annual prayer event that does not involve biking…everybody (public welcome) comes together and prays through the night following World Network of Prayer’s guidelines. Focused prayer is led throughout the night and following the prayer, everyone simply returns home. We’ve had attendees from as many as nine states attend a past event…Needs are met and prayers are answered at these events. Please plan to attend!

August 23, 2014: 8th Annual “Cruz’n For Christ”, Eminence, KY

NKY CruisingThe day started with our annual bike show. This year we changed things up and had the bike show first, right in the middle of town! We had a good response, but with the threat of storms all day it keep our offical regastration to 38 bikes, however 50 acually participated. Many people stopped in to see the motorcycles or make donations from 9:30 till around 1:00 pm. We estimate that between 175 and 200 people came through either to look or sign up for the bike show. Others just came to ride to Rabbit Hash, KY with us. Rabbit Hash is just a little over 70 miles from Eminence. It is a local biker hang out. All but two visitors had never attended before, so we were able to witness and tell many more about Jesus and the ASR.

The Lord was kind to us and kept the storms away ‘till all had returned home or to local hotels. We had an awesome ride to Rabit Hash through five counties and some hills, but most of the ride was along the Ohio River. Throughout the day, we had many opportunities to witness to people and had a new member sign up for ASR in the Northern KY Chapter. Thank you Jesus! All in all it was a sucsessfull day. We raised $570.00 dollars for the KY Wounded Warrior Project and so far we have raised $380.00 for ASR’s Motorcycles for Missionaries.We are trusting the Lord for the ability to raise the remanding $620.00 to achieve our $1,000.00 Chapter goal.

We would like to thank all who were able to join us this year and all that covered us in prayer! We love y’all and this wonderful ministry! All the members of the Northern Kentucky Chapter send their thanks for your support. May God Bless each and everyone of you for all that you do for His kingdom!

Rev. Anthony Storey, ASR Vice President

22-24 August 2014: 6th Annual Cruzin’ for Christ, Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada

photoEvents for Cruzin’ for Christ were centered at Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church in Sussex, New Brunswick.

Our 2014 goal was to raise enough funds to purchase three more motorcycles for use in Ghana, West Africa (Bro. and Sis.Nick Sisco and Sis. Colleen Carter). Our “Cruzin’ for Christ” organizing committee is comprised mostly of members of the Atlantic Canada Chapter of Azusa StreetRiders. The committee meets regularly on an almost year-round basis.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON:
Biker Registration area is set up in the foyer of ALUPC. Appropriate signage is present and maps and directions are available for out-of-town bikers who have made reservations at one of the area’s motels or Bed & Breakfasts. Accommodation information is available on the “Cruzin’ for Christ” website. (www.cruzinforchrist.ca). As bikers register, the funds that they have gathered are recorded on their Ride Application /Pledge Sheet and Waivers are signed.

FRIDAY EVENING:
This year’s concert had a “House Band” plus nine different “performers” (if that’s the appropriate word to use in this context) in concert. We had a canteen and the first $200.00 of canteen profit is designated as a gift to the “MK” program of the UPCI. This money is used to purchase bicycles for “Missionary Kids” somewhere on the foreign field. For 2014, although a final audit has not occurred as of this date, we anticipate being able to send approx. $240.00 to the MK program. The free-will offering received during the concert totaled about $450.00. About 100 people were in attendance. Visitors get a first-hand view of old fashioned Pentecostal worship, prayer and praise! The result was one young man filled and another re-filled with the Holy Ghost and one was baptized in Jesus’ name! (Both young men were again in church for the Sunday Evening service and both were again at the alter and praising, praying and worshiping.) For the event, we raised enough to buy four motorcycles and two bicycles for MKs. To God be the Glory!

SATURDAY:
Registration for the bikers started at 7:45 am. Breakfast was at 8:30 am and “Kickstands Up” was at 9:30 am. It’s the policy of the “Cruzin’ for Christ” Ride to plan the Biker’s Route in such a way that the ride stops for a “Noon Meal” visit with a smaller congregation that would ordinarily not have a chance to host any events within the Atlantic District. This year we stopped at the Blackville United Pentecostal Church in the village of Blackville, New Brunswick. Bro. and Sis. John Beach have seen attendance double in the 24 months they have pastored there and they are now seeing about 70 saints per service. This is in an area that has been devastated by a lack of employment. They organized a “Biker BBQ” for this noon meal. We learned that the church made new contacts within their community and had new people in their Sunday Service as a result of the BBQ. We were able to supply Bro. Beach with the “Outreach” type tracts that are available for download from the Azusa StreetRiders website. He also used these for the bikers that stopped in to see why so many motorcycles were parked in the church yard!

The Bikers then made their way back to Sussex where we arrived in time for a 5:00 pm Roast Beef Dinner.

SUNDAY MORNING BIKER CHURCH SERVICE:
The service is advertised as a “Biker Service” on the church’s sign on the Main Street of the community. This year’s message was delivered by the Atlantic Canada Chapter’s President. Thanks to inspiration received during Bro Chavis’s messages at ASR’s National Rally in Maryville, TN, Bro. McLeod spoke on the theme of “Loud Pipes Save Lives.”
