Q1 Update from the Philippines

Hello Brother thompson,

Below is the ASR Phils update for Q1.. 2019

Can we acknowledge the new member here in the Philippines in ASR official website?

I will send you the names of new members this week also I only consider member once the applicant acquired the ASR official patch, but if they just acquired the reflectorized vest only (our philippines vest with orange & white stripes) they are considered provisionary member for 6 months. if they failed to acquire the ASR patch within 6 months, their membership will be void and they need to pay the membership again.

2019 National Rally Registration is now Open

The Registration App for the 2019 National Rally is now available on the Azusa StreetRders Website under events. I will be posting in May’s edition of the Rumblings a detail outline of the schedule.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ:

Due to the success at our 2018 National Rally in Jefferson, Ohio compliments of Brother and Sister Theodore in regards to the lunch & Dinner arrangements, the Chapter in Maryville, TN would like to offer a “Meal Plan” at this years Rally. This meal plan would cover Thursday & Friday for both lunch (for those on the ride only) and dinner, immediately following service on both nights and will be held in the event center at FAC.

I could go into more details of all the benefits of the meal plan  however anyone who attended the 2018 National Rally knows how nice it was to walk from the service and have a nice hot meal ready and waiting. Unfortunately this year there will be a cost involved. For those who wish to “go out” you are certainly welcomed to do so there are many restaurants in the area however you would miss out on some of the best fellowship were going to have at this years National Rally.

Due to the number of people attending I would strongly suggest you signup for the meal plan when you register. After July 25th the price of dinners will change to $20.00 for adults & $10.00 for children. In addition there will be only a limited number of “extra” dinners at the door available (I have been told by the ones preparing the meals they do not wish to have  a lot of leftovers). Furthermore those that choose not to partake in the “lunch” meal plan(s) must bring a lunch with them if they want to eat. The venue for the lunches will be at a park or roadside picnic bench with limited or no access to any location to buy food. (Note: No extra lunches will be available for purchase on the ride)

** Please note you can sign up for one or all of the meals and if need be we have several months until the Rally so you can make partial payments over a period of time (Please get with Sis Theodore)

Registration Fee – covers the registration, 2019 event pin, Saturday Breakfast & Saturday Lunch. The Maryville chapter will host a meet & greet in the event center following Wednesday night service where pizza, salad, desserts and drinks will be served complements of this local chapter.

The fee’s are as follows: 
$25.00 – Registration fee
Includes: Registration Fee, Event Pin, Saturday Breakfast & Saturday Lunch
Thursday Lunch – $10.00 per person (for those on the ride only)
$5.00 – Per child under 12  (for those on the ride only)
Thursday Dinner – $15.00 per person (after church in the FAC event center)
$7.50 – Per child under 12
Friday Lunch – $10.00 per person (for those on the ride only)
$5.00 – Per child under 12 (for those on the ride only)
Friday Dinner – $15.00 per person (after church in the FAC event center)

$7.50 – Per person for children under 12

Shout Out for a Job Well Done

I just wanted to take a moment and thank a couple of our brethren for jobs well done. Bro Theodore & Bro Joseph have over the years worked behind the scenes updating and maintaining this ministry’s public information flow. From monitoring both the Web Site and the various FB pages they  have continually kept us informed and up to date with information relevant to ASR members and guests. In addition have kept inappropriate content from tarnishing our reputation. BroTheodore also contributes articles to our Rumblin’s  every month and Bro Joseph works all the back office duties for our Web site.

So a big “Hat’s Off” for both you
Thank you and God bless you and yours.

WinterFire Conference Update

First off all of us should take a moment and thank the Lord for Brother & Sister Mcleod, Brother & Sister Perry and all of the members of the New Haven, CT Chapter for a Job well done presenting the Azusa StreetRiders Ministry at the WinterFire conference. Job Well Done!
Bro Thompson, ASR National President

“THAT WORKED” by Brother David Mcleod


Bro Jeff Banores and Bro Dave McLeod
standing in front of our new
Azusa StreetRiders display booth
backdrop

We, as Azusa StreetRiders, were privileged to have an opportunity to explain our Motorcycles for Missions Ministry to numerous Oneness people during the 3rd week of February.

The venue was the major WinterFire Conference that occurs annually in the Hartford, CT area. It’s the premiere gathering of Apostolics for the Northeast Quadrant of North America.

It was also the first time to utilize our new ASR display backdrop.

Have a look at the attached photos. It’s 10 ft wide and 7ft high. The “face” of the unit is fabric and our favourite “Azusa Biker” is the visual centre point. The fabric is attached to the frame using Velcro. It takes about one minute to either set it up or take it down. Simply remove the display from its wheeled container and pull it apart. It unfolds and raises as it opens

People walking past us would literally stop and stare. It’s that effective!

This would give us an opening to say something like “Do you ride?” And the conversation was off and running.

I got to meet many of the New Haven, CT chapter members as we were on their home turf, so to speak. They’re to be commended for the ease with which they were able slide into biker related conversations. I’m convinced that these guys are on a 1st name basis with about half the population of New England! Hugs and “Biker Handshakes” were the order of the event.

Chapter President, Jeff Banores, has some really good plans to promote the ASR message in his area. President Jeff now has the contact information for five prospective members. We probably wouldn’t have found these folks had it not been for our WinterFire participation.

We’re looking forward to riding with any of the New Haven members who are planning to attend the National gathering this summer.

Please allow me to share some insights gathered in Hartford.

There are numerous District Conferences, Men’s Conferences, Youth Conferences, etc that fall under the umbrella of our various Oneness organizations. These events are where we will have an opportunity to meet prospective members and raise our profile.

The display is guaranteed to attract attention. We have the “common denominator” of our shared interest in all things “motorcycle.” In Hartford, we heard things like:

  • “My husband rides a motorcycle. He’s not as regular with his church attendance as he should be. I wish that he could meet you people.”
  • My sister-in-law lives in Texas? Do you know if you have anyone in Lubeck (sp) that could contact her? She sure loves her Harley.”
  • “We have two guys in our home church in New Jersey that belong to the CMA.”
  1. Our new “May I Pray for You” patch drew a lot of attention. People were asking us if we had any for sale. I was also asked if we had “bumper stickers” of the patch. – Good idea.
  2. The personal connection of the New Haven chapter members made a big difference at this conference. Chapter Presidents,,,, no one knows your area better than you……. Get out to your District events and see what will happen. We’re the largest “Oneness Apostolic Motorcycle Ministry” in the world. Let’s be scriptural. “Everyone Win One” would double our membership. It was an honour to represent our Ministry at this event. Both Brenda & I were ministered to by the anointed preaching The conference organizers did a great job on tis years ministers.

Daytona Beach Bike Week Outreach

I want to personally invite as many that can possible make the 3rd Annual Azusa StreetRiders Daytona Beach Bike Week Home Missionary Outreach Event. This event is to be held at

The Pentecostals of Daytona Beach
1011 W. International Speedway Blvd
Daytona Beach, FL
Pastor Luis Rodriguez

We will host a BBQ, Free Bike Wash, Singing & Worship, Evangelistic Service and Great Fellowship. The main event will be held March 16th located right on International Speedway Blvd 1 mile from the Daytona Speedway race track.

Allow me to state for the record; There are a lot of things at Daytona Bike Week that we will not involve ourselves in. I have to believe that jesus Christ can reach a lost soul even under these circumstances. I know this this atmosphere may not be what some may consider conducive for reaching the lost I disagree. This is one of our mission fields so and I again encourage all those that possible can come be apart of this great event to please do so, in addition we can show support for a Home Missionary in the midst of it all.

We have accommodations of sorts so do not be discouraged by the high prices of hotels etc

Feel free to contact Bro Thompson for more details.

 

Looking Forward

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ I pray everyone had a blessed holiday with family and friends. Now that we have geared down on 2018 and revving up for 2019 I wanted to take a moment and once again attempt to set the pace for the following year. We have many events going up on the calendar already so allow me to encourage you to register your event as early as you can.

Which brings me to another point I feel it’s the desire of this board, for us as a ministry, to get booths on the ground and do what we can to reach souls. When an ASR chapter hosts an event and has lost souls (riders) not associated with the apostolic message that is the first step to fulfilling the commission handed down to each and everyone of us  by our Lord Jesus Christ.

I would like to encourage you that when you do plan an event that we keep in the back of our minds the terms “outreach” and “lost souls” and the thought of eternity and how this applies to the core of this ministry. ASR can be that bridge to so many people all we need to do set the groundwork and allow Jesus Christ to do the rest.

I know there are those that have done events every year for many years and let’s be transparent, some with great results with respect to reaching out to lost souls and some a needed time of fellowship amongst a brethren both. In addition in 2018 there were several chapters for the first time stepped out in faith planned, sponsored and executed an event and the Lord blessed because lost souls were touched.

It’s not how many ASR members we get to an event that makes it successful it’s that one or two riders or lost souls whose hearts are touched maybe for the first time by our witness, that is what makes an event successful. On that note I want to encourage the membership of this ministry to support events of other chapter especially those that might be hosting for the first time as I know we already do.

It’s our job to sow the seeds, that’s all; none of us have ever saved anyone that part of the process is left up to the Lord Jesus Christ. In addition we may never know what seed that we sow at one of our events might affect someone for eternity so be encouraged that even though you don’t see the fruits of your labor right away that you have done the will of Jesus Christ by stepping out, in faith doing the best of your ability to witness to that one lost soul that Jesus Christ has orchestrated for you to be in the right place at the right time !

In order to do that we “all” need to be prepared through training and practical application, this is what this year’s BTSM is all about. True some ASR members are seasoned prayer warriors and some, well maybe your just staring out regardless all of us can use a “refresher course” when it comes to prayer. My experience is in an atmosphere like this the Lord will drop “nuggets” that we could walk away with that will make me that us a better prayer warrior.

We need to make the commitment to be in Myrtle Beach on March 1st let’s start off this year in prayer and supplication to the Lord so we can see lost souls saved and this ministry flourishing doing the work of the Lord. With the help of Bro Hurt I want, for myself, to kick off this year “hitting the ground running” and I feel this is the best way to achieve that.

In closing I want to say that I count it a privilege to service each and every one of you in this capacity, it’s been both a humbling experience and a challenge. Your current board and I have work hard in an attempt to take this ministry to a new level of excellence and that does not happen over night. However we are seeing some fruits not only our labor but the efforts of many within this ministry. Let’s keep up the good work until the Lord comes.

God Bless you all and let’s keep the rubber side down.

Chaplain Corps Update

Happy New Year ASR Family.

We are excited to announce three new Ladies Chaplains for Azusa StreetRiders who have agreed to take the newly ASR board-mandated* OCA Chaplaincy Course.

The OCA Chaplaincy course is sponsored by UPCI but is available to anyone who desires certification as a workplace chaplain. Please congratulate Charlotte Dawes (ASR Southeast Texas Strong Chapter), Krysta Markahm (Central Alabama ASR) and Carmen Hamby-Brown (Sanctuary of Sikeston, MO). They will be joining the current Ladies Chaplains, Vicky Storey (ASR Northern Kentucky) and I (Diane Beall, ASR Myrtle Beach). Our goal is to have Chaplains capable of ministering one-on-one across the globe via face-to-face, phone and/or video conferencing.

We would also like to thank our Men’s Chaplains that are actively serving ASR.   Rev. Allen Cherry, International ASR Chaplain, Bro Clarence Earp, Central Region 10 (North Texas Chapter),  (Rev. Michael Moore serving West, Region 9 (ASR Sonora, CA), Rev. Rick Perry, Eastern Region 15 (ASR New Haven, CT) Rev. Ed Sears, South Region (ASR Covington,LA) Rev. Justo Savvedra, South Region 7 (ASR Cooper City, FL)  Rev. Joe Jarvis, Midwestern Region 11(ASR, Bloomington, IL)

The roll of a chaplain in ASR is not only to help membership, but also to reach out to those that we come into contact with through our daily lives who are hurting.   Again, Chaplains keep EVERYTHING confidential. 

Chaplains serve at the discretion of the ASR Board for an indefinite time. Each Chaplain undergoes carful vetting and also is approved by their pastor (unless they also serve as an active pastor). Being a Chaplain is an awesome responsibility and individuals must have the “heart” of a Chaplain to truly be effective. We all have giftings but not everyone has the gifting to be a Chaplain. If you believe you are called to be a chaplain, please contact Chaplain Cherry or myself and we can discuss the roll and responsibilities to help you decide if you have this gifting/calling.

*At the 2018 National Rally, the ASR Board agreed that all new Chaplains must have proper training and/or credentials to become a chaplain with ASR.  However, the Board has the right to waive the course requirements on an individual basis depending on the applicant’s qualifications and background.

Abundant Blessings to All for 2019

Diane Beall
