Sabbath Keepers

Motorcycle Ministry Members Inspire Pathfinders at Oshkosh
October 23, 2019

SHREVEPORT, LA.– The Northwest Arkansas Chapter of the Sabbath Keepers Motorcycle Ministry (SKMM) was invited to share their ministry at the CHOSEN 2019 International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh. More than 4,200 Pathfinders from 48 countries and 28 states stopped by the SKMM booth to pick up their free SKMM pin.

Representative for the Northwest Arkansas Chapter of SKMM, Chuck Bostwick and Rick Long, were assisted by Paul and Mindy of the LaPorte, Ind. chapter of SKMM along with Willy J of the Tulsa, Okla. chapter. Many Pathfinders took part in the motorcycle safety pledge led by Paul, the LaPorte chapter leader. The Pathfinders were excited to sit on the various motorcycles and have their pictures taken as a camporee souvenir. Many also chose to have their photo taken with some of the Sabbath Keepers. They especially liked the bikers with the patch-covered vests.

We were able to share with the Pathfinders that we are trying to fulfill the scripture of Mark 16:15, to spread the gospel to everyone, including those in the biker community. By planting seeds of love and kindness and offering literature, prayers and visitation we can help others in a time of need. The Pathfinders learned that anyone can be a part of this ministry, even if you don’t ride or own a motorcycle. Should anyone wish to be a part of this ministry, email
