The purpose of the CMA is to encourage Christian motorcyclists to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. We meet for rides, visiting Churches, going to bike events, having fun and getting together as mates in the Lord. Our slogan is Unity in Diversity – all makes of bikes being ridden by people from many different backgrounds.
In 1979 a meeting took place in Sydney between representatives of two Christian motorcycle clubs, the Brotherhood and the Disciples and a number of lone riders. Their intention was to form an association of Christian riders which would enable them to be linked in fellowship no matter where they lived in the state. Since then the work has spread to every state in Australia and formed in South Australia in 1993.
In 2000 it was moved at the annual National Run that the name Christian Motorcyclists Association of Australia be adopted.
CMA International is in a multitude of countries throughout the world. Since its beginning in the mid 1970s, God has grown CMA into an international ministry with 27 active countries.
The Banner Photo
The photo that is on the top of the page was taken by Naomi on the back of Wayne’s bike between Sedan and Angaston on Saturday the 3rd of September, 2005. The next bike is being ridden by Leon, followed by Steve and then Glenn. This photo and others taken that day were used in the Riding with Purpose booklet which contains the Gospel of Mark. 30,000 copies were produced and only a few are left today. We were keen to get some more photos that day as the booklet was to be printed in a few weeks, it rained all day yet produced some great shots. Well done Naomi. This photo was used by Leon to produce our current CMA banner. Thanks Leon. Contact us to receive a copy of this booklet.
