Pray for Brother Todd Storey

I would like to ask that all of the Azusa StreetRiders family, friends and members continue to pray for Bro and Sis Storey and their family. Many of you know they were rear ended by a car while he and Sister Storey were riding on his motorcycle He has been in the hospital for weeks now and I just received a text he just came out of “another” surgery.

Please keep an eye out on our website and FB pages as to updates. In addition were attempting to put into place a medium in which we might be able to help in another way, by giving an offering for the family.

Azusa StreetRiders – Philippines


Big things often have small beginnings. Though started in 2009, the Azusa Street Riders Philippines was recognized as an official ASR chapter in 2017. It has now a current official count of 42 members.

The main purpose of this ministry is to help local churches with evangelism. They visit local churches in different provinces to help the local church pastors promote the UPC church in the area. They have been to different provinces in the northern and southern parts of Luzon to promote the ministry and at the same time share the gospel. During evangelism rides, the riders give out ASR leaflets to motorcycle clubs and tracks to people they meet. They also marshal big and small events under UPCI Philippines, like General Conferences, Pentecost Sunday, and other events. As the ministry grows, updates and changes were made to further enhance the ministry. As we are firstly soul winners, the star award was implemented as mandated by the ASR International. Two members of the ASR Philippines have been given this award.

The Azusa Street Riders Philippines grows continually by the grace of God, and all for the glory of God.

In Memory of Rev Bishop Ompad

Azusa StreetRiders Member – Philippines
Posted on behalf of our Brothers and Sisters
in the 
Philippines our prayers are with you

On July 17, 2018, many were saddened by the news of the passing of Rev. Bishop Celedonio“Donnie” Ompad. A great man of God, and one of the pillars of the Apostolic faith in the Philippines. From being a fisherman, to becoming a fisher of man. He was truly a man full of wisdom and indeed a well-respected man of faith.

A week-long funeral service was prepared at the Philippine Evangelism Center, where BishopOmpad was the resident pastor.Stories of memories with our loving Bishop were shared; eulogies were told; word of encouragements were heard; songs were offered.

The interment was held on July 24, 2018. Headed by Azusa Street Riders Philippines, together with the other Riders group, escorted the procession from the Philippine Evangelism Center in Makati City to the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City.

A final salute was given by the pastors led by his brother, Pastor Gadiel Ompad. As the Azusa Street Riders Philippines’ adviser, the riders also gave their final salute by raising their helmets.

We cannot deny that as human beings, it is sad and painful to lose someone. But the Lord is there to comfort the heavy-hearted. He had departed from this earth, but we know he has arrived in heaven.The battle has been won. You have fought a good fight of faith. You will be deeply missed, Rev. Bishop Celedonio Ompad. Your legacy continues here.
