INVOICES 2022

INVOICES-
There have been some questions concerning initial application fees and membership dues. The initial membership of 60.00 for Heaven Bound or 75.00 for City/State pays for the patch so everyone actually gets the first years dues at no cost. Beginning January I will invoice every member individually instead of invoicing the chapter unless otherwise communicated in advance. Beginning January 2022 dues will be 40.00 for every member instead of the 60.00 for individual members and the 30.00/30.00 split for second year chapters. The Azusa StreetRiders ministry has grown to the point we needed to adjust how we invoice. Keep an eye out in your email for invoices between the second and fourth week of January. Dues can also be paid in the ASR website store azusastreetriders.com at any time.
God bless,
Sis Laureen Theodore
Azusa StreetRiders International Treasurer

Where o Where Are You Tonight


Most of us who has seen Hee Haw would follow up with why did you leave me here all alone!
I am sitting here at the Hennigan Compound by my fire pit and thinking about what I wanted to write to all of our Rumbling Rowdies! We have grown to become a very large and diverse cross section of churches and ministries over the last few years. All walks of life, personalities, and backgrounds are to be found in our ranks. Many time I feel as VP that I’m very much a small frog in a very large pond. So many of you guys and gals bring much knowledge and life experiences far beyond my own.

As the holidays move closer, there are many that will experience very different emotions over the next few weeks and I wanted you to know that you are never alone! I may not know where you may be at any particular time but God never loses sight of us. He said he will never leave you alone.

Many of us have lost loved ones this year due to Covid and other issues. Loneliness and feelings of loss go hand in hand with these issues of life. God never loses sight of us and He never leaves us alone.

Many have lost jobs and finances over the last year. Gas tanks take more money or we use less gas. Cost of living is taking a toll on 401 and IRA balances. God never loses sight of us and He never leaves us alone.

Some of us have changed our lifestyles and habits to better lead us to a closer walk with God. This has led to a loss of some friends and family sometimes seem to disprove of our more Godly choices. Addictions are difficult to break and even harder to replace with better coping skills. We seem so small and insignificant. God never loses sight of us and He never leaves us alone.

It seems like the commission that was handed to us by the Almighty is to large and impossible to accomplish with our meager talents and abilities. In walking thru the hedges and byways we see ourselves in those we seek to invite to the marriage supper and we wonder at our success in showing them the Christ. Such a responsibility. Such a vision. Such potential. So much to do. God never loses sight of us and He never leaves us alone.

I may not know where each of you may be this evening. I may not now your struggle today. I may not know how far or close you may be to throwing in the towel. I may not be able to give you the direction you seek or the answer you desire. I can tell you this,

Jesus never loses sight of you and your never alone!

Hugs and prayers to all of you!

Thank You Bossier City, LA Chapter

I want to take extend a hearty THANK YOU for the  Pentecostals of Bossier City, LA church, Bro Dean and the Azusa StreetRiders chapter from an excellent job in hosting the 2021 Azusa StreetRiders National Rally. Bro Thwing and his crew hosted our rally flawlessly and in the highest regard of excellence. From all of us again Thank You, a job well done.

Starting out Wednesday night with the Pastoral teaching of Bro Dean talking to us about the Heart of Worship” Than kicking off Thursday morning with a group meeting of the Coordinator’s, Chaplains & Chapter Presidents and anyone else that would like to have sat in. We discussed many topics¬† the main theme however is going forward the increase of responsibility on these three groups.

We than had a dinner that couldn’t be beat. I would like to thank¬† Bro Matt, his family and friends who provided (a better term would be “stuffed us”)¬† us over the next several days, no one went hungry.¬† the meals were some of the best ever again Bro Thwing sparing nothing in the hosting of this Rally. After lunch we than had a great ride into the Louisiana back roads.

Thursday night service was upbeat and powerful as Bro Tom Harding our new Global Missionary Coordinator presented us with the word of God from his heart and ministered¬† to all in regards to “purpose” in our walk with God. In addition we raised over $30,000 for Motorcycles for Missionaries” this years recipients so far are :

Bro Scotty Grimm РALJC East Africa Р 2x bikes
Bro Keith Ikerd – UPCI Namibia Africa – 2x bikes
Bro Randy Watts – ALJC India – 2x bikes
Bro Rusty Riddick – UPCI Sierra Leone – 2x bikes
Bro Sam Speer – ALJC Uganda – 2x bikes
Bro James  Waldred РIndia Р1x Bike

Thursday evening also brought the news of the passing of Bro Mike Powell an elderly ASR member in  Diana, TX and that his funeral was to be held Friday morning. Bro Thwing made an adjustment to our schedule and we split the members attending the Nationals in half. Half went to Apostolic church of Dania, TX to minister to the family and friends and the other half went on the scheduled ride to minister in the opposite direction.

Now I personally need to apologize to Bro Thwing and the Bossier City Azusa StreetRiders Chapter. After we all got back to the church for a fish dinner (yum yum) I called a short board meeting before Fridays night service. Unfortunately that short meeting turned into a couple of hours and the board did not attend the scheduled outreach tent service at the local Harley dealership. This is inexcusable and I apologize for doing that I can assure it was totally unintentional however that does not negate the fact that we missed the most important portion of any rally or event and I hope you accept my sincere apology.

Friday night’s service was again powerful¬† and Bro Dean ministered to us on God’s love language,¬† Winning Christ. I do believe the services have been posted on the both ASR Facebook pages.¬† I also wanted to thank Bro Dean and I hope he doesn’t mind me mentioning this the love offering Azusa StreetRiders presented to Bro Dean for Friday night was given back to Azusa StreetRiders Motorcycles for Missionaries fund and paid for half a motorcycle for Bro James¬† Waldred during a special offering taken up by Bro Heningan at the conclusion of Friday night’s service.

All in all the Rally was an outstanding success the business meeting went well,  See below for the minutes of the 2021 Azusa StreetRiders Annual meeting. Lastly everyone got home safely which I would like to thank our Lord Jesus Christ for.

Global Missions Coordinator

Would like to welcome and announce brother Tom Harding as our new Global Missions Coordinator. Bro Handing has been a blessing to this ministry for many years as the facilitator between the Azusa StreetRiders Ministry and many overseas missionaries. Bro Harding works for the UPCI Global Missions Department along with Bro Bruce Howell and Scotty Slayton both of whom have blesseds this ministry with their support and direction regarding our overseas interests. In addition the staff at the UPCI Global Missions Department have been instrumental in the Azusa StreetRiders “Motorcycles for Missionaries” program in so many ways.
We applaud Bro Tom Harding’s decision to be a part of our ministerial team and look forward with his leadership in¬† developing Azusa StreetRiders Global Vision.
