Bikes with shadow cross

Bicycle Ministry

Community of Faith supports a Bicycle Ministry, which is headed up by Jack Kleier and Jerry Stoup. Jack and Jerry collect and take donations of used bicycles and parts, and rebuild them to be given away in the community. Through agencies such as the Brighton Center, the Edgewood Fire Department, and Third Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati, where Jack is a part time minister, bicycles have been given to children and adults throughout the tri-state area. Jack says, “children have two ways to get around– walk, or ride a bike. The bikes give them freedom they wouldn’t otherwise have… Christ taught us to help one another. This ministry has given me a way to respond to Christ’s call.”
