Grace Riders


Grace Riders is a ministry that was launched by our local church in 2009 with the desire and mission to reach the motorcycle community in southwest Florida for Christ. With a Christ-like attitude and a heart for the lost, we welcome those who are searching and those who are hurting.

We desire to be strong encouragers in our local churches and desire to reach out to our communities.

Grace Riders is primarily a men’s ministry, yet we welcome all riders.

We invite you to participate in any of our many events:

  • Annual Christmas Ride (delivering gifts to needy children)
  • Annual ride to Tennessee
  • Annual ride to the Florida Keys
  • Weekly rides (i.e. Immokalee, Ava Maria, Ft. Myers, Everglades City, or Chokoloskee)
  • Volunteer Projects
Grace Riders is a proud partner and member of the Nazarene Motorcycle Fellowship and Christian Motorcyclist Association.

For more information about the Grace Riders or if you would like to join our group on a ride or event please contact the ministry coordinator; Fred Bachota (239-734-1800).


* The Grace Riders has an established fund in honor of Duane Coplin.  Duane was an avid motorcycle enthusiast.  The funds that have been made available in his honor are used throughout the year to minister to those in the community and are also put toward the Annual Christmas Ride, as we deliver gifts to needy children throughout Collier County.
