The Missouri Baptist Bikers in coordination with the Heartland Interstate Strategy (HIS / I-29 Corridor) is inviting you to participate in their 2015 Ride and Rally.
Missouri Baptist Bikers are cruising Interstate 29 this summer in support of a church-planting effort called the Heartland Interstate Strategy (HIS). The HIS I-29 Road Trip is scheduled to begin June 19 from the campus of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City. Riders from Missouri and other states are then riding north along the I-29 corridor and ending their journey June 22 in Fargo, N.D.
Leading the effort are riders from the Missouri Baptist Bikers Fellowship, who invite Baptist bikers from across the nation to help them direct their passion for motorcycles toward ministry.
The road trip promotes HIS, an initiative to plant Southern Baptist churches in the largely unreached territory along the I-29 corridor, stretching from Kansas City to Winnipeg, Canada. During the ride, bikers are stopping at HIS hub cities, which include St. Joseph, MO; Omaha, NE / Council Bluffs, IA; Sioux City, IA; Sioux Falls, SD; and Fargo, ND.
In Fargo, bikers plan to work with local church planters to host a block party and motorcycle “show and shine.” Bikers also have the chance to win a door prize after completing a motorcycle run release form in Kansas City and picking up tickets for the run at each stop along the way.
There are two components to this event… the first is the RIDE – This event will begin on the Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Campus in Kansas City on June 19th with the final stop in Fargo, North Dakota on the 22nd. The purpose of the ride is fun, fellowship, and information with an incentive at the end. The fun and fellowship comes with the chance to ride with friends up I-29. At each stop on the way riders will get the chance to interact with church planters and see what God is doing through the HIS, along with a ticket to enter the drawing at the end of the rally for a couple J&P Cycles gift certificates.
The 2nd component is the RALLY in Fargo. Life Church in Fargo is coordinating a community-wide Show & Shine for bikes and cars. This will be a family-fun environment with games, food, stunt show, and a huge gathering for a Bike & Car Show. Our role, will be to participate and have a Jesus presence with those attend.
