Here’s the story of a man who logged 4.5 million miles driving a tractor trailer all over North America. Having been “really out there in the world,” Burt Porter discusses the struggles of being away from home for 2 – 5 months at a time while raising a young family and the struggles of exercising faith on the road. In From Big Rigs to Christ and Bikes, get the inside story of a career on the road and the transition to an active life of service for God. Toss your assumptions aside. This episode is a great encouragement whether you are a trucker looking for words of wisdom, or somebody who is not familiar with this type of work. Check it out! “The Lord is out there,” says Burt. “Seek Him and you will find Him. That’s what I did. I sought Him and I found Him.”
There are ministries. But there are also unmet needs and maybe right up the street from your church. “It’s only limited to your imagination,” says Burt. Hear what some creative folks are doing in their response to God to meet the needs of those on the road. Listen to this fabulous podcast and you’ll also learn about the Christian Motorcyclists Association and the various ministries they support from Open Doors to the Jesus Film Project to various missions requiring transportation to bring the gospel to remote locations around the world that can not be reached by car: eye-opening!
