Bikers For Christ was founded by Pastor Fred Zariczny (AKA Pastor Fred Z or Pastor Z) in 1990. The international headquarters is located in Oceanside, California.
Pastor Z and his wife, Esther faithfully devote their lives to serve their local biker community along with the entire world-wide Bikers For Christ ministry members and leaders.
Bikers For Christ has a board of National Elders who oversee the ministry and assist Regional Elders as they lead their respective State Elders.
Bikers for Christ Motorcycle Ministry is an “ON-FIRE, LOVING, EVANGELISTIC, EXCITING, DYNAMIC, EFFECTIVE AND FUN MINISTRY” with members all over the United States and overseas. Our members rumble around the world on their motorcycles proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord!
I am thankful that God is good, full of grace and mercy. He is able to take the worse situations and make things new. After coming to the end of myself, I realized that serving the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, mind and strength, was the only way to have peace and fulfillment in my life. It’s my desire to have Him rule and reign in my life every day. He continually changes me, helping me grow in the knowledge and grace that He promises.
I have a beautiful wife named, Esther. She is my soul-mate and partner in the Lord’s work. I have three beautiful daughters, Melody, Sandra and Andrea and grandchildren whom I love with all my heart, and who love me. I am also thankful that I have close friends, brothers, and sisters in Christ, literally all over the world.
Serving God and living in His presence is the best high that anyone can experience. God has given me the gift of evangelism and teaching. I have had the privilege of sharing His love and truths with many different types of people, on the streets, in churches, and at outreaches. It’s an exciting thing to be able to witness to people about the awesome things God has done and continues to do in my life. In 1987 I was licensed as a minister, and in 1990 I was ordained as a pastor. I am able to perform weddings, help with funerals and memorial services, and share the gospel in hospitals, juvenile halls and in the jails.
In 1990, I founded Bikers for Christ International Motorcycle Ministry. In 2003, I began a church in a bike shop called, “Rushing Wind Ministries,” we now hold our Sunday service, Bible studies and events in a rented space which also houses our BFC Headquarters, and offices. I am the senior pastor, and in addition to pastoring the church in Oceanside, California, I travel as an evangelist all over the United States and have had the pleasure of leading thousands of people to faith in Christ. Jesus has freed me from the bondage of drug addiction, and other sins. It is a daily battle, but I’ve found that living for Jesus and serving Him is the only way to have real peace and true purpose in life.
Love and Respect, Pastor Fred Z
