Serving with E3 Partners in Czech Republic, leading short-term teams
for the purpose of evangelism, discipleship and church planting.
The Friends of Agape team is focused on achieving a sustainable 20% Christian population in India (currently under 5%!). This means partnering with others to reach and disciple 200 million people in the coming 10 years!
We are a fellowship of churches like First Christian, and individuals, businesses and foundations which share a mission commitment for the least reached peoples of the world. We focus especially in locations in India, Nepal and Bhutan where over 40% of the world’s unreached peoples live. We love supporting the efforts of more than 1,000 national church planting coordinators, trainers, Bible translators and educators, and share their desire to see the Great Commission completed in our lifetime. These ministry partners have been serving for more than 30 years and have won the highest regard of the broader Church where they are located.
Join us as we:
Establish new Christ followers more deeply in their faith.
Establish disciples who also become disciple-makers.
Establish churches which have redeeming impact in their cities, towns and villages.
Establish God’s Word for access in Scripture-less languages
Establish opportunity for the poor to rise out of poverty and abuse.

OBJECTIVES: First and foremost is to lead Bikers to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Second and equally difficult is to challenge churches to be more receptive of all people. The first objective, leading bikers to Christ, is accomplished through a tent ministry. CRM travels to secular motorcycle events in the United States where a tent is set up. Meals are served, a daily worship service is held and people are counseled and ministered to. The hours are long and the reception is varied, but CRM remains focused and faithful.
HISTORY: Christian Riders Ministry (CRM) was formed in 1991 by DQ & Beth Roberts at First Christian Church of Bayonet Point, Florida. Being Bikers who had come to know the Lord Jesus Christ, they had an intense burden on their hearts for others in that lifestyle. No other Biker had ever told them that Jesus loved them and valued them highly. That message needed to be carried back. So, they sold everything they owned and began traveling to motorcycle events across the country in a school bus, setting up a ministry service tent and sharing the Gospel.
