"A s a youngster, I always had a passion for motorcycles. My father bought me my first bike when I was 9 years old. I remember it was a Honda Trail 70. When I grew up, my passion was fueled by American-made Harley-Davidsons.
"But more than my passion for motorcycles is my love for Jesus Christ. My story is pretty humbling. About 10 years ago I started my ministry, Christian Faith Worship Center, in my mother's 8x10-foot living room. I had four members who believed the Word and had a desire to learn more about God's covenant promises. It is truly my heart to teach God's people with simplicity. I believe that if they understand the Bible, they will manifest all that God promises them in their lives.
"Now I pastor a congregation of hundreds in a new, 10,000-square-foot sanctuary. Being a biker allows me to meet people throughout the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas region. I have even begun a biker outreach program called Biker Sunday. Every third Sunday of the month, bikers are invited to come to CFWC in their riding gear.
"Because my Screamin' Eagle Fat Boy is so eye-catching, people from all over recognize me. Its features include a chrome gas tank, chrome fenders, California custom rims, Eagle tone kickstand, Eagle head horn covering, L.A. Chopper 16-inch ape-hanger handlebar and ostrich-skin seat, all powered by a 103-cubic-inch V-twin with diamond-cut heads. I've been customizing the bike for two years now, and it's won several awards, most recently in Shreveport's Red River Rumble. I also own a Screamin' Eagle Road Glide that won first place in the American Touring Division of the Fear No Evil M.C.'s 2008 rally & field meet."
