Bikers for Christ

Lebanon was full of black bikes and leather vests when about 400 motorcycle enthusiasts got their motors runnin’ and rode through Lebanon this past weekend.

No one seemed worried since these were not the Hell’s Angels, the Pagans or the Sons of Silence.

These were members of the Christian Motorcycle Association in town to attend their CMA Missouri State Rally held Friday afternoon through Sunday.

Chapters from Lebanon, St. Robert, Hartville and other towns enjoyed evening and morning services, a bike show and bike games.

Chris Stevens from Lake Ozark and president of the Fishers of Men, the local chapter of CMA based there, rode his Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail.

He had customized it in several ways, including an airbag that would lift and lower the rear end.

More importantly to Stevens, his bike was a rolling message.

Stevens explained the origin of the theme of his white and red bike and the words emblazoned on it.

“The Lord woke me up, and he told me ‘Revelations 19:11,’ so I got up, opened the Bible, and it talks about Jesus coming back on a white horse, talks about his robe will be dipped in blood, so that’s where all the red comes from,” Stevens said.

The “FAITHFUL AND TRUE” words stitched into the bike’s saddle denotes what the rider will be called while the “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” quote painted on the gas tank is what Jesus will have written on the inside of his thigh, Stevens explained.
