Meet NEW National Director Mark A Bedwell

Mark's PictureMy name is Mark Bedwell and I am the NEW National Director for F.A.I.T.H. Riders. (Bead of sweat running down my brow just typing that.)

I have been in the ministry for over 22 years, and can honestly say that I am more excited about entering this season of ministry with you than any other time I can remember. I currently serve as Outreach Pastor at First Baptist Church at the Mall, and it has been my privilege to be Buddy Newsome’s supervisor at First Baptist Church at the Mall for several years.  As you are quite aware, Buddy has stepped down to focus more attention on his battle with cancer.  When First Baptist Church at the Mall became aware of Buddy’s decision, they  asked me to prayerfully consider  stepping in as National Director of F.A.I.T.H. Riders.   My answer was “Yes.”


Let me be quite honest.   I don’t know a whole lot about motorcycles.  I do, however, know a lot about people.  And you are some of the most passionate, loving people I have ever met.  God has blessed this ministry and will continue to bless it because sharing Christ is truly what it’s all about.  While I am learning the job the hard way,  I am blessed to have inherited a strong National Headquarters Team in Mike Stewart, Laura Terry, and Debbie McDonald.  Those three have been and will continue to be vital to the success of this ministry.


I look forward to getting to know you more and serving alongside of you.  Please prayerfully consider coming to our first ever National Rally in August.  Mike Stewart is putting together a fantastic weekend full or riding, fellowship, worship, and vision casting.  It will be a great experience for us all.
