A Preaching Biker on Extreme Makeover Home Edition

I have always been a big fan of the show, Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. Each week's episode has always been outstanding, no exceptions. This week, the team/show featured Steve Boettcher and family, from Stagecoach, NV. They needed help with their home and with their safe sanctuary for troubled kids.

The interesting thing about Steve is, he's a biker and a minister. But instead of a traditional church... Steve started his own ministry known as, “Soul’d Out Ministries.”

It's rare to find a minister who enjoys a good bike while spreading his love for religion. Most tough guys would much rather listen to someone on their own level than a man in a fancy suit. Steve isn't the only biker minister around, however. I know of a biker minister that lives in Oolagah, OK, if he's still there that is. It's great to see ministers going beyond the fancy suits and churches to share their time and love for religion to those who are troubled and want help.
