Christian Riders Ministry (CRM) was formed in 1991 by DQ & Beth Roberts at First Christian Church of Bayonet Point, Florida. Being Bikers who had come to know the Lord Jesus Christ, they had an intense burden on their hearts for others in that lifestyle. No other Biker had ever told them that Jesus loved them and valued them highly. That message needed to be carried back. So, they sold everything they owned and began traveling to motorcycle events across the country in a school bus, setting up a ministry service tent and sharing the Gospel.
The objectives were set from the beginning and remain the focus of CRM.
First and foremost is to lead Bikers to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Second and equally difficult is to challenge churches to be more receptive of all people.
The first objective, leading bikers to Christ, is accomplished through a tent ministry. CRM travels to secular motorcycle events where a tent is set up. Meals are served, a daily worship service is held and people are counseled and ministered to. The hours are long and the reception is varied, but CRM remains focused and faithful.
