Bucks County Member Starts Motorcycle Ministry
Story by Tamyra Horst
John Van Aken helped start the first Sabbath Keepers Motorcycle Ministry on the East Coast.
“Jesus met people where they were. We want to meet people where they are and help them grow in Christ,” shares Van Aken. “We want to present the gospel in the best way we can.”
The Bucks County SKMM recently participated in the Lansdale Bike Night and at Bucks County church’s Heroes Day event. They set up a tent with plenty of literature to give away. Members and their families also distributed free water and began conversations with those they met. They’ve followed up those meetings with phone calls and invitations to join them for rides. Some of the rides were just for fun, but they also invite them to ride church services on Sabbath mornings. One biker they recently met told them, “You know, I’ve always believed in the fourth commandment and not Sunday. I never knew a church like this existed.”
To learn more about this ministry, contact Van Aken at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit them on the web at sabbathkeepersmm.com and click on “Bucks County Chapter.”
