Have you ever considered going to a secular rally but were stopped by thoughts like "What would I do? Where would I fit in?" Here is a proven learning opportunity for you, based on Scriptural Concepts - The Christian Motorcyclists Association's Ministry Team Training Program. 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.
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. 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.

Prayer Ministry Team
Many of you are actively involved in a prayer ministry in your local church and chapter, but you may not know other ways your prayers can reach out to the lost. Part of this training program is not only to give you the basics for praying for people's needs, but also to put your prayers into practice by visiting downed bikers and others in the hospitals. This ministry gives you the opportunity to minister to others who may not be near home, or may not be a Christian. Your prayers and visits may be the first step for many to come to know the love and forgiveness of the Lord.
