On January 20th, 2018 the Christian Motorcyclist Association was awarded the AMA club of the year for 2017. Our motto is “Changing the world, one heart at a time.” This simply means that as we go to different events and volunteer we are doing so to be a witness of Christ and to plant seeds into the hearts of the unsaved (1 Corinthians 3:6). We are grateful for the recognition from the AMA. Although we don’t do these things for awards, our prayer is the God will use this award to open doors to further His Kingdom. Covenant Riders chapter #257 out of London/Plain City, Ohio had the privilege of having the trophy brought to the chapters March meeting where we were able to get a group picture with it.
