Honor Bound Motorcycle Ministry
“CTI Riders For Redemption”
What is HonorBound MM?
HonorBound MM is a ministry to REACH bikers and motorcyclists with the gospel, to TRAIN Christian motorcyclists in evangelism and discipleship, and to BUILD a network of churches who are enthusiastic about this unusual ministry.
How is HBMM different from other motorcycle ministries?
HBMM is a church based motorcycle ministry. Where most Christian motorcycle ministries and/or clubs do not require regular attendance in a local church, HBMM requires that a pastor endorse the members as faithful attenders and supporters of the local church. The local HBMM chapter comes under the authority of the local church leadership just as any other ministry of that church.
It is our firm belief that a believer cannot mature spiritually without a committed relationship with a local church., Eph. 4:9-16
Secondly, HBMM requires higher standards for membership than many other groups. We require that members take a course teaching them how to do evangelism and that they be drug, alcohol and tobacco free before getting the patch and while keeping the patch. It is about honor in ministry to the culture that we are reaching.

Nelson & Cynthia Ortiz
Nelson and I met in while active drug addiction back in 2005. We were both in a dark place and living a lifestyle not pleasing to God. I was drinking and drugging to the point of no return, and Nelson as well. Since he was a teenager, he was in and out of prison, living a life of violence. Over a period of 16 years Nelson was shot 10 times.
In 2010 The Lord delivered me from this life and I was baptized in water. It was the best thing that ever happened to me! Even in active addiction I knew that I was called to ministry, but I was blinded by the strongholds of drugs and alcohol. The Lord took me out of the place where I was and placed me where I could get the help that I needed. There God touched me and that was the beginning of the rest of my life in Christ. That’s where my healing began.
Nelson and I had our son in 2007 but we still had our ups and downs. In 2012 Nelson gave his life to Christ and we got married in November of that year. The Lord started to building us up, strengthening us to leave the past and to begin living a life together to please Him as husband and wife.
In 2011 we started attending an AG church. Nelson also started a new job as a truck driver, so he attended with me whenever he was home. I got involved in many ministerial duties there and Nelson served as an usher. The Lord led me to further my education by attending NJDSOM which introduced us to CTI where we eventually became members.
As ex-addict alcoholics we know what it is to live a life of insanity, (doing the same thing over and over again in a different manner but getting the same results). We know what it is to live in despair and hopelessness. The freedom we have today comes through Christ Jesus and we want people to know that God does not want anyone to stay where they are but to live a life of freedom and contentment in Him. The gift of forgiveness that we receive through the perfect sacrifice of the shed blood of the lamb of God Jesus Christ is all we need to move forward in the life He wants us to have.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
We share this through HBMM in reaching people with the love of Christ in this lost and dying world. If He did it for us He can do it for you.
To God be the Glory!!
