I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord has chastened me severely, but He has not given me over to death
......His mercy endures forever.
Psalms 118:17,29 NKJV
History of BikerDownLiftedUp
This Ministry was formed July 28, 2009 is dedicated to Jesus our Lord and Savior to serve as a resource to Lift Up Downed Bikers in the Western North Carolina area. Our 'Coming Out' was the weekend of September 19, 2009 at the Rally in the Valley in Maggie Valley North Carolina. The Harley Dealership Association of North and South Carolina was very good to us and we thank them. Our next big event was Oct 12, 2009 when BikerDownLiftedUp ministry had their first organizational meeting.
It was a great success and lead to our membership formation and mission.
In January of 2014, Heaven's Saints Motorcycle Ministry endorsed us as a support ministry.
We hope to do events where ever God leads us and we want other organizers of bike events in Western North Carolina to call us or write us so we might attend.
In July of 2014, the Board of Directors and attending members voted on new Bylaws for BikerDownLiftedUp. Within those Bylaws - here and available for all to read - are new provisions to create and allow chapters to form and continue this ministry in their communities. With that a motion we made our Eastern Tennessee Chapter, lead by two great Christian friends Don Brown and his wife Margaret. We are most proud of our other NC Chapters, Carolina Piedmont West and the Foothills Chapter. Both are led by devoted Christians who are a strong group of people. We have also been in contact with interested people in VA, Northern GA, FL, SC, OH, and PA. God has blessed us greatly and we want to let everyone know He and He along gets the glory for the service He has set upon us.
In June of 2020, the leadership team and founders of BikerDownLiftedUp transferred all administrative duties and responsibilities of this 501(c)3 to the Foothills Chapter located in Kings Mountain. Headquarters are now established there with new leadership and ministry. The founding members and others located in Asheville North Carolina remain as members and will continue to minister in that area.
