Many years ago men on horseback rode the western plains as saddleback preachers inspiring new believers and nurturing new churches. They became known as the Circuit Riders. Today a new generation of Circuit Riders is emerging, not on horseback but travelling by train, on bicycle and by car connecting with youth groups, visiting schools and churches across Europe.
Circuit Riders are musicians, small bands, poets, dance or drama artists or people with a unique teaching topic or ability. They can be English teachers or storytellers; young, old, or any age in between. Whatever they do, they are an inspiration to who they meet. Circuit Rider teams are usually between 2 and 4 members.
Their mission is to build bridges and break down walls.
The Circuit Rider's mission is to inspire and mobilize young people to reconsider the faith heritage and the values that inspired their forefathers and for which they fought often at the cost of their own lives. The stage of these Circuit Riders is the class room.
Circuit Riders are recruited in the beginning of each year for short tours in Europe. The tours can last anywhere from 7 days to 3 months, always in the fall and summer, sometimes in the winter and spring.
