In July 1983, Pastor Ammerman
was called, by God, to a ministry to
bikers, specifically to the biker MC
community. In 1985, Pastor
Ammerman’s wife Sherry was killed
in a motorcycle accident and his
resolve to persist toward the
success of the ministry was
strengthened. A connection to Troy,
NY was made with “Reverend Jim”
Carter, and the seed was planted for
MELCHiZEDEKS MC (Motorcycle
Club) in the Capital District. THE PURPOSE OF THIS CLUB IS TO BE AVAILABLE TO LOVE AND SERVE, AND SHARE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THE MOTORCYCLE CLUB "MC" COMMUNITY. God has provided opportunities for the Melchizedeks to serve our community through bike blessings in both Rochester and Troy, weddings, visits in locked facilities, hospital visits, memorials, baptisms, baby dedications, and sharing our faith through friendships.
Family Hope Center offers free pregnancy tests, referral for a FREE limited ultrasound, information on STD & STI's, parenting, adoption & abortion risks and procedures. Pastor Kevin serves on the board and members of Faith Community Church support the center financially and through volunteerism.
Faith Community is active within the community. We provide support in many ways including spiritual guidance, building usage and financial resources. Those who benefit include other Christian ministries, local non-profit agencies and municipal organizations.
