RISEN WARRIOR MINISTRIES
Risen Warrior is not a club or M.C.
We are a C.O. That stands for called out. We submit to what God says in the books of Timothy and Titus concerning the adminstration of the body of Christ.
We are a Christian brother and sisterhood whos goal is to live up to the motto: NO ONE LEFT BEHIND. We don't give up on our brothers and sisters even when they are having hard times.
We don't just minister to Bikers but to anyone God puts in our path. That includes bikers, the homeless, food ministries, visitation, ministry to Warriors Kids, people with adictions and so on. We believe that we are called to be a witness for Him through our actions and presence everywhere we go and in everything we do.
We even have members who don't ride, yet feel a calling towards the ministries that we are involved in. There are Prayer Warriors, teachers, and encouragers. There are Pastors, musicians, woman's ministries, and men's ministries.

How are we governed? by Elders as discribed in the Bible. Once a local group forms, people are chosen by their gifting as apposed to elections.
Do we prospect? No, we do not have a time when we are deciding if we will accept you but the opposit. we have a three month period where you take the time to get to know us and then decide if you want us.
Do we have dues? No we are supported by tithes where appropriate, offerings and fundraisers. Our National office is supported through gifts from the local fellowships and through supplying items that have our name and or colors on them.

How to Get Colors. The ministry always owns the colors but each member gives a spacific donation for each item that has on it our name and or colors. Once the color donation is made we will send a set to you.
We believe that we will make a true difference by lifting up Christ and His kingdom principals. Our Lord told us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. That is why we don't run by club rules but by bible rules. We want to call those individuals who have finally become sick of the ways of the world, out of it. There must be a tangible difference between the way we do things and the way the world does things.

DO WE PROSPECT?
WHAT ABOUT DUES ?
The body of Christ is not a club! There are no dues. If we can't run on the biblical principle of giving, we will not run. Giving hearts are a part of the kingdom and we hope area. This is between you and God.
HOW ARE WE GOVERNED?
We are governed by biblical princibles as given to us by Jesus through Paul. We are not so much governed, but led or overseen by elders. Elders is a broad term for apostles, pastors, teachers, and evangelists. We don't hold elections! Our leadership is held to account by the word of God. The eldership uses the word to keep each other on target and in conformity to the word. Our membership is also involved in this process as an accountability in the body of Christ is a whole body concept. There are no classes within the true body, only differing gifts between equal brothers and sisters
