A Life Well Lived

Posted in Rev. G's Biker News

Our brother Deguello Jerry has passed away. He was a good man who will be sorely missed. He enriched the life of every person he encountered. Thank you, Jerry.

It is times such as these which cause us to stop and consider who WE are and what this life is really all about. Our prayers go out to Jerry’s family, his Dequello brothers and to YOU. May each of us discover our true purpose. May we live fully, experience the joy of the Lord and, like Jerry, be a blessing to those around us.

I found this poem which seems to be written in Jerry’s voice; the words something he wants to say to us today:

Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room.

I am I, and you are you; whatever we were to each other, that, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used, put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we shared together. Let my name ever be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity.  Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well.

May God bless and keep you. May He make His light shine upon you. May He turn his countenance toward you and give you peace.

Rolling On Easter

Posted in Rev. G's Biker News

My Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

We hope to see you Sunday April 11, 10:00 AM for Praise, Worship & Fellowship at your Bones on Fire Biker Church.

April 11th is a special day in the life of our biker church family for a couple of very important reasons and we hope you will invite your friends and family to join us. On this day we begin meeting EVERY Sunday at 10:00 AM to worship the Lord in fellowship! As you know, we began two years ago holding church services with a handful of brother and sisters at the County Line once a month. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit we have grown to a family of 60 or more that desires to meet weekly to worship together, hear the Word of God and to support and encourage one another in our daily walk.

This day is also a benefit for the family of Mike Rodriguez, a young man tragically taken in a traffic accident. County Line is hosting this event which will feature food, live music and auction items. We had an opportunity to meet and pray with the family last week. They are good people who need our support.


Biker Bible Study

Join us for fun, fellowship, food, worship, personal sharing and time in the Word. We meet the 1st Tuesday of each month. We will see YOU at 7:00 PM Tuesday April 6th. Be There – Or Be Square!


Jericho Ride

April 18, 2010

Prayer still proves effective in pulling down spiritual strongholds and on 4/18/2010 we will ride & pray and come seeking breakthrough for our city & nation. Born Again Motorcycle Ministry and our own JohnO and Debbie invite you to visit www.jerichoride.com and join us on April 18th . It’s a ride like no other. After the ride, everyone will be meeting at Tom Bass Park  for food and fellowship.


This Food For Thought discusses our individual call to discipleship.

Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14.27)

Tony Campolo was preaching in West Virginia one night. Two young lawyers were part of the congregation. Compolo’s sermon was on the cost of discipleship. At the conclusion of the service the invitation was given for people to commit themselves fully to Christian service. The two young lawyers did not come forward. However, they did accept the challenge to change their lives and seek ways in which they could more fully serve Christ.

The two men practiced law together. As a result of the call to discipleship these lawyers decided to offer free legal services to poor people in their county. This was a decision that went beyond the amount of free service that most law firms provide. These lawyers would help anyone in the county who needed their help–without cost. People responded to their generosity.

Their commitment to helping the poor, though, changed their lives in ways they did not expect. They soon gained new paying customers. Even more surprising a number of people who had been delinquent with their bills suddenly paid them in full. “I suppose they didn’t want to cheat lawyers who helped the poor,” one of the lawyers explained.

These men have taken the first step in becoming disciples of Jesus.

God of love, help me to be a disciple not a pew sitter. In Jesus name, Amen.


We pray you have a blessed Easter and will see you on April 11th.

Brother Richard

Take It To The Streets

Posted in Rev. G's Biker News

Bones on Fire Biker Church takes it to the streets!

This past week has marked three milestones in the life of our “Church outside the box” and they all occurred outside the confines of the County Line. As we continue to grow so do our ministry opportunities.



Our 1st Devotional and Ride was a complete success. We met Sunday (as we will the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month) for a brief Devotional and then crashed the Fountain of Life Christian Center, the home church of Pastor David and Sister Olga. We went to support that ministry and to share with the members of that Body the exciting work God is doing in our Biker Church. We hope to be able to visit all the home churches represented in our Fellowship to thank them for their support and covering. To see some pictures of our adventure visit: http://picasaweb.google.com/GordonArchPhoto/ChurchCrash2710#



We had a great Bible Study at the beautiful home of Norm Cooper Tuesday, February 2nd. We will be meeting the first Tuesday of each month at her home in Richmond. You can see some pictures of the study, fellowship and food (really GOOD food!) at: http://picasaweb.google.com/GordonArchPhoto/BibleStudy2210#



This past week we said good-bye to “Spider”. He visited us at Biker Church and was a neighbor of Olga and David’s, who performed the memorial service. It is a blessing to be able to offer comfort at the loss of a loved one; how much greater the blessing to know that loved one is with the Lord! We pray that you are prepared for the world to come and that you have acknowledged Christ as your Savior. All this is prologue. We are spiritual beings, destined for an eternity with God, IF we accept His free gift of salvation. http://picasaweb.google.com/GordonArchPhoto/Memorial?feat=directlink



We hope to see you this Sunday, 10:00 AM for Praise, Worship & Fellowship. This is a BYOBB&B Church: Bring your own Bible, Bike and Buddy.Remember, only God can turn an icehouse into His house!

Devotional & Ride

Posted in Rev. G's Biker News

“BONES on FIRE” BIKER CHURCH

My Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

This Sunday, February 7th at 10:00 AM, we will be meeting at the County Line for our 1st Devotional & Ride. Be there or be square!

County Line Bar & Grill

Pastor David showed a video by Rob Bell which led to a discussion about The Great Commission (Mathew 28:19) and the true meaning of Disciple.

In the Great Commission, Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread the Good News. This is faith in action! People who obey this command change their spiritual lives forever! It could be spreading the Good News to a neighbor or moving to another country to reach the people there. It could be sharing with less fortunate kids down the street or spreading the Word in a town two hours away. Wherever we go, every faithful Christian is compelled through obedience to share the Gospel. If you’re a believer in Jesus Christ, where has He called you to go? Who has God put on your heart to share the gift of salvation? What small or large steps can you take, with the knowledge that Christ will be by your side, “to make disciples of all the nations”?

This Food For Thought speaks to that calling:


Ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness. (Romans 12.7-8)

A man fell into a pit and could not get out. A subjective person came along and said, “I feel for you, down there.” An objective person came along and said, “It’s logical that someone would fall down there.” A Pharisee said, “Only bad people fall into a pit.” A mathematician calculated how he fell into the pit. A news reporter wanted the exclusive story on his experience. An IRS man asked if he was paying taxes on the pit. A self-pitying person said, “You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen my pit!” A charismatic said, “Just confess that you’re not in a pit.” An optimist said, “Things could be worse.” A pessimist said, “Things will get worse.” Jesus seeing the man, took him by the hand and lifted him out of the pit.

A fine Christian man lost a very good leadership position through downsizing in his company. He is such an outstanding leader and worker it is hard to believe that anyone would demote him. But it did happen. Now to make some extra money and to use his time for some good cause he cleans peoples’ boats. You would think this man would be depressed. But not so.

He became the adopted parent of four college students from Costa Rica. It gives him great joy to help make their dreams come true. The loss he experienced in that very important company could not keep him from doing God’s work.

Heavenly Father, help me to never lose sight of doing your work. In Jesus name, Amen.


We hope to see you Sunday!

Bones On Fire

My Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

On the 1st and 3rd Sundays we will meet at the County Line at 10:00 AM for a short Devotional followed by a time of riding and fellowship. We hope to be able to visit and support local churches and are looking for your input concerning our activities on these occasions. If there is enough interest, we intend to make these Devotionals an ongoing part of our monthly Biker Church calendar. Our first Devotional and Ride will be on February 7th at 10:00 AM.

Through the preaching of His gospel and the fellowship of the spirit, the intent of “Houston Ablaze 2010″ is to share an understanding of His great love for all who would call on His name.

Bones on Fire Biker Church Service

May 23, 2010

The Bones on Fire Biker Church service will be held at the Houston Ablaze Rally at the Houston Farm & Ranch Club the forth Sunday in May.



Pastor David reminded us that we can only make a difference if we are resolved and firm in our purpose. This Food For Thought speaks to that drive and determination:



I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot. So, because your are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth. (Revelation 3:15-16)

I remember reading about Winston Lloyd who was an aide to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. One day he brought to Kissinger a long-awaited report on conflicts in South America.

Without even glancing at the report, Kissinger asked, “Is this the very best you can do?”

Lloyd stammered for a few moments and said, “There were a few informational gaps.”

“Take it back,” Kissinger said and dismissed him.

Two weeks later, after working night and day, Lloyd again entered Kissinger’s office and held out the report.

“Is this the very best you can do?” Kissinger asked, without looking at the document.

Lloyd hesitated and admitted that there were some parts of the report that were incomplete. Kissinger told him to take it back. Three weeks later Lloyd asked for another meeting.

For the third time Kissinger asked, “Is this the very best you can do?”

Lloyd replied, “Mr. Secretary, this is my very best effort.”

Kissinger smiled and said, “That’s all I ever ask. I’ll be happy to read your report.”

Doing our best is all God asks of us. You and I do not have a right relationship with God because of the things we do. Our faith is the important key in our commitment to God. However, what we do says a lot about how much we care and how committed we are to serving God.

I realize that we are human. None of us are going to do everything perfectly like Jesus was able to do, but to follow God means that we are called to do our best. In Revelation 3:15-16, it says, “I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot. So, because your are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

God doesn’t want us to be lukewarm. God does want us to do our very best.

Dear God, turn up the heat so that I may be on fire for you by doing my very best. In Jesus Name, Amen.



On behalf of Pastor David and Sister Olga, may the blessings of God be upon you and we will see you Tuesday February 2 at 7:00 PM for Biker Bible Study.

It’s hard to believe that we have been meeting to build each other up, as we praise the Lord, for two years. God is good … All the time. And all the time … God is good!

As we begin our third year as a family, we have some exciting new developments to reveal:

Pastor David challenged us to build the House of God in our lives in 2010.

This Food For Thought speaks to successful living:

And it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

The only path to true success comes when we daily take up the cross of Jesus Christ. Even a self-centered generation knows that self-denial is the path to success. But listen. There is a catch. Self-denial will not bring us fulfillment if we only live for ourselves. We may say, “I am not doing this for my husband or my wife. I’m not doing this for my children. I am doing it for me.” Fine. That may help you stay on your diet. That may help you keep up your studies. But it will not bring you ultimate fulfillment. Ultimate fulfillment comes only when we say, “I’m doing this for God and God’s people.”

I heard once that our will and God’s will is like this, “Imagine a person carrying two buckets, one of them filled with oil and one filled with water. Now they are completely filled so that you cannot pour the oil from its bucket into the water bucket because there is no room and besides oil and water don’t mix.

Now imagine that one of these buckets is you and your will and your purpose and your plan for your life and the other is God’s will and plan and purpose for your life. Before you can know God’s will and plan and purpose for your life you’re going to have to empty your bucket to receive what God has to give. Now whom do you trust the most to know where real purpose and joy, satisfaction, and peace lie with you or with the heart of God?”

The key to truly successful living is to deny ourselves in order that God may fill us to overflowing with God’s presence and power. As Paul said in Galatians 2:20, “and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.” There is the path to real success. If we who are followers of Jesus would learn that one simple truth, we could turn this world upside down.

Dear God, fill me with the saving power of Jesus Christ, as I pick up his cross of salvation everyday. In Jesus Name, Amen.



On behalf of Pastor David and Sister Olga, may the blessings of God be upon you and we will see you this Sunday at 10:00 AM.

We look forward to seeing you at our Biker Church Sunday January 10th at 10:00 AM. We’ve missed you and are anxious to once again enjoy your fellowship.

We met and were warmly welcomed by members of a number of clubs including: 3rd Coast Strokers MC, Raw Impact MC, Hard Riders MC, Los Guys MC, #1 Stunnas MSC and the Slapaho Riders.

Jericho Ride

April 18, 2010

Fashioned after the battle plan God gave the armies of Israel in their defeat of Jericho in Joshua chapter 6. After Joshua and the army of Israel marched around the walls of Jericho seven days and then seven times on the last day, the walls of Jericho came tumbling down.

Prayer still proves effective in pulling down spiritual strongholds and on 4/18/2010 we will ride & pray and come seeking breakthrough for our city & nation. Go to www.jerichoride.com and join us. It’s a ride like no other. After the ride, we will come together for a time of corporate prayer & fellowship.

We want multi cities to join-in so if you know someone in another city willing to lead the folk in there area, please have them contact me. 2009 was good, 2010 will be awesome, we need breakthroughs & God hears prayer.



From my good friend Pastor Johnny Price here is some Food for Thought for the New Year.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Heb 13:8

Should auld acquaintance be forgot.

And never brought to mind!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot.

And the days of auld lang syne!

“Robert Burns” 1759-1796

Should is from Old English—it means–”Shall”

auld is Scottish—it means–”OLD”

auld lang syne is Scottish—it means in English–”the good old times”

So in English it would say:

Shall old acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind!

Should old acquaintance be forgot

And the days of Good Old Times.


Happy New Year to all my friends, and may this be the best year of your life. Love yourself, love your life, love your Lord. This is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it. The New Year can be like being born again. Let the old pass away, behold all things become as new. Fight and resist the devil and he will flee from you. You are loved by the Lord, and his light will guide your path.

Father in Heaven, thank you for new beginnings, thank you for Jesus, and may this be the best year of my life with YOU. In Jesus name, amen.



God bless you and your entire family.

Brother Richard
