Sidney pastor creates 'Trinity Riders' motorcycle ministry to benefit local people, causes

Posted: Updated:

A group of motorcycle-riding church-goers in the southern panhandle are teaming up to create a new motorcycle ministry. 
 
The 'Trinity Riders' are a group of intra-denominational Christians that are getting together to support the community.

The ministry's founder, Pastor Mark Zalesky, said there are a few motorcycle groups in town, but none of which were specifically founded to support local people or local causes.

Zalesky says thus, the 'Trinity Riders' formed to help the local community.

"We all got together and decided we needed something that helped local people. The Christian Motorcycle Association is a great organization, but all of their money goes to national or international events to help people that way."

Zalesky says the Trinity Riders plan to support locals through benefit rides, volunteering, community service and however else they can.

"Just little things to help communities. And if somebody needed help that they were in the in the hospital for example, and their yard was going to the weeds, we would go help them clean up their yard."

Zalesky says the ministry also wants to focus on mentoring youth, and maybe help to teach them life skills that can help other people, such as changing tires or jump starting a car.

"So if little grandma Irma down the street has a flat tire and she's trying to get to town, that young man or young woman can go and change her tire and get her on her way."

Spreading the word of Christ is also a focus of the ministry.

"The motorcycle part of it is to reach out to the one percenters, the diamonds, the outlaw groups. They need to hear about Jesus too."

Zalesky says the 20-member ministry is intra-denominational, with members ranging from Lutherans, Methodists, Evangelical-free, as well as Disciple of Christ.

"The first line of our bylaws is you have to be a Christian," Zalesky said. "Other than that, we want to ride with everybody, and everybody is welcome to ride with us."


Zalesky says the 'motorcycle' ministry isn't specific to just motorcycles, he says there are some ministry members that drive their pickup truck or Camaro on 'rides.' 

"You don't have to own a motorcycle to join our ministry, you just have to love the Lord, and love helping people. That's where we stand and that's what we are all about."
 
The 'Trinity Riders' will be hosting a meet-and-greet Saturday, March 29 at Legion Park in Sidney at 1 p.m.
