Born-Again Bikers

With their tattoos and leather jackets, some bikers say they feel judged and unwelcome at traditional churches. However, in southeast Ohio, dedicated biker ministries and churches are helping motorcyclists use Christianity to turn their lives around. At least 100 people gather regularly for worship services at the Rushing Wind Biker Church in Zanesville, Ohio, which was founded in 2010 by members of the local Bikers For Christ motorcycle ministry. The church seamlessly blends Christianity with elements of biker culture, and tries to make everyone feel welcome, regardless of their background or appearance, said Pastor Michael McGuire.
