History of AMM 

 

Brother Miguel J. Domínguez asked God to help him create a club of Adventist motorcyclists since he was in a non-Adventist club and this was not what he wanted as a Christian.  

 

Then at the beginning of 2008, during a Couples Retreat in Camp Kulagua, Florida, Domínguez had an opportunity to speak to Pastor Orlando López.  He learned that several pastors rode motorcycles!   Domínguez shared his plan to form a club of Adventist motorcyclists.  Pastor López immediately liked the idea and spoke with Pastors Rolando de los Ríos, Idalberto Torres, and Juan García.   They began to coordinate and to spread the word among the areas of each pastor:  Pastors López and García in Miami, Idalberto in Ft Myers, Domínguez in Avon Park, and de los Ríos in Orlando.  

 

On October 16, 2008, five men gathered at the Fort Myers Church, with around 60 brothers of different towns and churches in Florida.  In that meeting, it was agreed to officially form the Biker Club.  Two names were suggested: Adventist Motorcycle Association (AMA) and Adventist Motorcycle Ministry (AMM). The latter name was chosen.   It was agreed that it would be a ministry and not a club--not only involving riding, but also a ministry to raise awareness of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and win souls for the kingdom of heaven.  It was an immediate hit!  After two years, AMM went through its first test and more than half of the members lost interest, but what the Lord has set is not be dissolved and the remaining members kept at it.

 

It has been six years and we have grown greatly and we continue to grow to the glory of God and our delight.  We have given hundreds of Christmas gifts to children in different churches, delivered food to the less fortunate, and have engaged with many families who do not know Jesus Christ, through the work that we have done.  Today AMM has grown not only in Florida, but it also has chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Washington.  We are even growing internationally--Puerto Rico, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hungary, India, Nepal, and South Africa.  It is our prayer that we will continue to grow, uniting all Adventist motorcyclists around the world into one big global family!

 

Our Ministry has achieved world-wide recognition and has received many inquiries from Spain, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Chile, and other countries that want to join the Seventh-Day Adventist Ministry of motorcyclists.   The Lord gave us a task and, "therefore go and make disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you and behold I am with you all the days until the end of the world "(Matthew 28: 19-20).  Our Lord has said, "Go.", and we do so in the name of the person who sent us, Jesus Christ.  

 

We invite you to join the Adventist world motorcycle ministry, and become part of our family.
