NEBRASKA, USA — Curtis and Teresa Hubbell have been missionaries in motorcycle ministry since hearing the call of God on their lives in 1997. Sturgis isn't a typical place you would find a children's ministry. But that's exactly what chaplains Curtis and Teresa Hubbell are doing. In 1997, Curtis L. Hubbell attended the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. Walking through the festival area, Hubbell felt concern for the children being exposed to unhealthy influences through some of the activities. He sensed God calling him to motorcycle ministry.
Hubbell began following that call, and a few years later, Hubbell and his wife, Teresa, started Kidz Zone ministry at the annual rally, with 12-year-old son Joshua helping. Curtis presently serves as an Assemblies of God U.S. Missions (AGUSM) missionary and endorsed chaplain with Chaplaincy Ministries. He is now very involved with HonorBound Motorcycle Ministries to develop new motorcycle ministries. Joshua C. Hubbell, now 27, is an AGUSM missionary associate, endorsed chaplain, and regional HonorBound leader who continues the children’s ministry at Sturgis. Providing a safe place for children to play and learn about the gospel in the middle of bike rallies is also opening ministry doors to other bikers in the area.
“These kids have seen a cross on a church as part of the physical or cultural landscape,” says Hubbell, “But learning that Jesus loves them enough to die for them is new.” Kidz Zone plants seeds not only in children but in adults, especially group leaders who may be clannish and hesitant to engage since they are often treated as outsiders.
“They know we have nothing to gain personally from helping kids, so when they see us being kind to children, it opens doors,” says Hubbell. “We want them to know they don’t have to look a specific way for Jesus to love them.”
Curtis and Teresa now partner with Joshua and his wife, Emily, and their three grandchildren to spread the good news at Sturgis and at motorcycle rallies throughout the USA.
