Motorcycle Prayer Ride

Four Corners Prayer Ride

July 15-18, 2018 at NE Oregon

Area: Northeast Oregon and possibly some Idaho

In partnership with CBNW and fellow rural pastors of the Northwest, we are holding the annual Prayer Ride. This is a trip that has become somewhat of a tradition for a group of our church families and friends. In July of 2010 we ventured out on our first "4 Corners" prayer ride with a mission to visit and pray for rural churches in each of the 4 corners of Oregon and in past years we have expanded some to other states. If you have a motorcycle, would love a special way to see God's country, and have a heart for prayer, then plan on joining us.

Please feel free to contact me if you want to ride with us or if you have any questions 541-963-3911 or email aumpleby@lagrandefbc.org. We hope to have a great group of riders. Let's come together and let the churches know that they are loved and prayed for!
