According to the Circuit Riders® (CR) website, “CR is a missional community based in Huntington Beach, California. Since 2011 we have experienced tremendous open doors to reach the lost, revive and encourage the body of Christ and train and empower thousands as proclaimers of the gospel.”
Christian recording artist and CR worship leader Lindy Cofer said, “JESUS IS ALIVE. THIS IS GOOD NEWS: Spontaneous baptisms in Minneapolis and too many testimonies to count!” Cofer added, “I’m at loss for words but I’ll try! We had a Circuit Riders team amongst many others head to Minneapolis and WOW. ONLY JESUS. @alvinmuthoka @instagrahammarshall @yasmin.isabellpierce and so many more.. thank you for courageously hopping on a plane to simply take Jesus to the streets.”

Movieguide® Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr spent much of his youth as a revolutionary. When he encountered Christ, he realized that Jesus was the only answer to the chaos he and his friends provoked. Now, Baehr is seeing a similar trend to his past — and the same answer.
Baehr said, “The only thing that can actually solve the problem [of recent events] is Jesus Christ.”
Praise God for this new believers!
