Covenant Motorcycle Ministry was founded in 1999 by Gary “Bishop” Mills. On 8-18-2005 (when Gary “Bishop” Mills retired), Chuck Ladue took over leadership and became International President of Covenant M/M.
Covenant Motorcycle Ministries is unique and not right for everyone. However there are levels of membership and commitment that will fit most people.
1. Affiliates have the least commitment and responsibility, but they may be offered a Fellowship Support membership promotion.
2. Fellowship Support members are growing. We prefer to work directly with you and your pastors, and have members accountable to them. Fellowship status is a single back patch with limited responsibilities. It allows freedom of movement and a more loose commitment. Our Fellowship Support members wear a one piece Fellowship support patch (same for men and women). Out of those groups a few members may be called out to:
3. “Prospect” for and earn the right to wear a Full or three piece Full patch. Prospecting is when we get to really know you and you get to know this ministry and what it is about. Prospecting to be a Full Patch member isn’t easy and isn’t taken lightly;
4. Full and 3 piece patch members covenant for life. Men and Women are full patch holders; however the woman’s back patch is 3 pieces combined into 1, while men’s is actually 3 separate pieces. We serve Jesus Christ and as a group of ministers of the Gospel, we hope to reflect well on our Savior in all our behaviors.
In the Great Commission, Jesus told us , “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of ALL NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” As Ministers of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we go boldly to minister to ALL NATIONS, we deeply respect the motorcycle clubs and members we minister to, however our Alignment is to Christ alone and we do not pick any other side in worldly battle for turf or supremacy. We enjoy traveling to events to bring the gospel, it maybe with 1%ers , rider clubs or worshiping with other Christian bikers. We share the hope we have in Jesus Christ.
Covenant M/M is made up largely with Licensed, Ordained Pastors or Chaplains. We live to be called upon by the biker community to do Biker Blessings, Weddings, Funerals, Baptisms, Hospital visits, Prayer and laying on of hands for healing and Christian Counsel. Many motorcycle clubs nationwide count on Covenant Motorcycle Ministry members to be what we say we are; hardcore Christians and hardcore bikers.
