Q: What does it take to become a member of the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA)?
A: The first and most significant requirement for membership in CMA is that you acknowledge you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord. The second requirement for membership is completion of a Ministry Team Training course. This training material includes practical teaching and illustrations, which demonstrate the importance of using your abilities to reach others with the Gospel. By listening and working through this course, you will learn that two of the key ingredients in sharing your faith are being visible and being involved. You will learn that building relationships with others will eventually open doors for ministry in the motorcycling world.

Q: What is the CMA Ministry Team course?
A: The Ministry Team Training Course provides in-depth information on who CMA is, what we do, and basic ministering principles. We feel it is important to provide key information about CMA and basic ministry training to anyone desiring to join. The course includes 3 DVDs and one Workbook and can be purchased for $22.00 plus state tax if applicable. The first two DVDs will provide in-depth information about the CMA ministry on a national, regional and local level. The third DVD is the Ministry Team of your choice and provides basic ministering principles specific to each team. The choices are: Children’s, First Aid, Hospitality, Mechanical, Music, Prayer, Prison, Servants, Women’s, Youth, and Youth Movement. The workbook is generic and fits any Ministry Team chosen. More information about the specific teams available for ministry focus can be found at http://www.cmausa.org/ministry/ministry-team.asp. We highly recommend the servant’s team for those who are completing the Ministry Team for the first time as it provides basic principles that translate over into every area of ministry. If more than one person seeking membership (example: husband and wife) each person will need their own workbook. Additional Ministry Training Workbooks can be purchased for $6.00 each at https://shop.cmausa.org/detail.aspx?id=96 or by calling the order line. You will need to complete the training only once in order to be qualified for membership, although we encourage you to review the material yearly.
Upon completing your Ministry Team Training Course, send the tear-out pages of the workbook to the CMA National/International Support Center where they will be processed and a membership card will be sent to you. This card will authorize you to purchase items with the official CMA logo and the official CMA back patch.
Q: How can I get this Ministry Team Training?
A: Once you have chosen the team that is right for you, you can purchase the training at https://shop.cmausa.org/detail.aspx?id=95 or through the CMA order line at 800-300-6530. It is important to note that some local chapters maintain a library of Ministry Team Materials for new members to utilize. Checking with the local chapter before ordering these materials may save you time and money.
