According to the Florida Times-Union, a Georgia pastor plans to channel his inner Evel Knievel this weekend. The Augusta Baptist preacher has designed motorcycle stunts as part of his Augusta motorcycle jumping ministry—Jumping for the King. Shortly before Saturday’s jump in Florida, Aaron Ramsey plans to give a talk, complete with gospel singing, prior to jumping his motorcycle over nine buses outside of the church. The following day, he plans to jump his motorcycle again and even jump his motorcycle through a wall of fire.
After spiraling into drugs and alcohol, the Georgian preacher saw Robbie Knievel, son of Evel Knievel, speak after he jumped 30 limousines. He was so inspired by Robbie’s speech that he decided to redirect his faith and his passion for motorcycles and formed Jumping for the King. Since Jumping for the King began, Ramsey has done 200 jumps across much of the Midwest and Southwest.
