What we're about
The Circuit Riders were organized over 35 years ago and are still going strong today. We have recently posted our chapter with Meetup so the motorcycle riders of North East Texas can be better informed about us. You can visit the National Circuit Rider Motorcycle Ministry Website for more information.
Circuit Riders reach people on the streets and byways of America. These are people who have never stepped into a church or heard the news that Jesus loves them. But then men and women wearing leathers, chains and tattoos arrive on motorcycles with "Riding For Jesus" on their backs. They are Circuit Riders sharing the love of God with comforting words and lives are changed forever. Circuit Riders are ministers of God who are able to reach the broken-hearted of the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Everyone is welcome to come and join us. You do not have to ride a motorcycle, just have a passion for Christ and a passion for motorcycles. Who says you cannot have fun going out and witnessing about Jesus. We are family bound by the brotherhood of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Come check us out your life will never be the same.

In the past, churches in various towns organized together to send ministers in circuits to preach the gospel in the vast frontier. These traveling ministers on horseback were called Circuit Riders.
Circuit Riders Christian Fellowship Motorcycle Ministries (CRMM) was founded in 1986 by Edward “Doc” Louviere. Present day motorcycle ministers of CRMM continue the powerful work by touching and changing the lives of people on the roads through the word of God.
Members of Circuit Riders must be established in a local church and have a desire to evangelize their community and serve as a representative of the local church in conjunction with the Pastor and leaders.
CRMM has chapters in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and a growing number of new chapters are in other states. It's mission is to minister to bikers and others who do not fit into "traditional" churches and to disciple men and women of integrity to carry forth the word of God in their lives.
