Four bikers made a 20-hour road trip—all the way from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, to Ancaster, Ontario—to bring their anti-pornography message to Synod 2012.

“We wanted to be available to anyone who had questions about our church’s request to synod, and we wanted to advertise our bike trip,” said Jim Terpstra. His church, Charlottetown CRC, initiated an overture that was brought to synod by Classis Eastern Canada, asking the denomination to plan ways to address the problem of pornography.
Synod asked the Board of Trustees to provide assistance to the churches in combating pornography.
Terpstra is planning a cross-continent trip called “Shore to Shore with a Roar” for 2014. The brigade will make stops in key Christian Reformed locations such as Michigan, Iowa, and southern Ontario, raising awareness about the problem of pornography and encouraging people to “take every thought captive” for Christ, he said.
