In July 1983, Pastor Ammerman was called, by God, to a ministry to bikers, specifically to the biker MC community. In 1985, Pastor Ammerman’s wife Sherry was killed in a motorcycle accident and his resolve to persist toward the success of this ministry was strengthened. A connection to Troy, NY was made with “Reverend Jim” Carter, and the seed was planted for MELCHiZEDEKS MC (Motorcycle Club) in the Capital District. THE PURPOSE OF THIS CLUB IS TO BE AVAILABLE TO LOVE AND SERVE, AND SHARE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THE MOTORCYCLE CLUB "MC" COMMUNITY. God has provided opportunities for the Melchizedeks to serve our community through bike blessings in both Rochester and Troy, weddings, visits in locked facilities, hospital visits, memorials, baptisms, baby dedications, and sharing our faith through friendships.
