With the purchase of their first motorcycles in 1972, Herb Shreve and his teenaged son were soon to become part of a biking community that did not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Herb shared this revelation with a few friends and today the Christian Motorcyclist Association (CMA) is over 80,000 members strong.
The primary purpose of the CMA, their mission if you will, is to “Change the world, one heart at a time.” Staff evangelists, who each oversee a multi-state region, average 40,000 to 60,000 miles a year on their machines. John Ogden has been a part of the motorcycling world since he bought his first bike in 1961. He joined the CMA in 1981 and has risen through the ranks. He was asked in 1998 to fill a position on the CMA Board of Directors and he was asked to take his present position as CEO/Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2000.
