Christian-Extreme Athlete to Speak to Youth

I'm always looking for ways to show my kids that you can be "cool" and still be a faithful Christian...
Christian extreme-athlete Ronnie Faisst, one of the world’s most accomplished freestyle motocross riders and one of the stars from the Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle ChaosSM tour, will visit MOR Youth, the Senior High Ministry at Gateway North Richland Hills, Texas, on Wednesday, January 19, 7:00PM.   The event will take place at the church’s North Richland Hills Campus at 7501 Davis Boulevard.

Faisst will encourage and energize teens to pursue the highest values of the human spirit through his testimonial followed by a question and answer session.  The evening also includes a meet-and-greet and autograph session with Faisst. For more information regarding the speaking engagement, please call 817/552-3719 or email  The evening is free and open to the general public.

Faisst is a Two-Time X-Game Bronze Medalist and has competed in 12 X Games Events. Faisst recently placed third overall at the 2010 Dew Tour. He also won one silver medal and two additional bronze medals during his run in the Gravity Games. Faisst has competed in more than 60 FMX events worldwide throughout the 11 years he’s been competing.

Most importantly to Faisst is strongly being active in spreading the word on his faith and how it helps him in the freestyle motocross world.  He is a member of Revival Christian Fellowship and also supports the Extreme Church, which has an affinity toward those in Extreme-Action Sports including MX, BMX, FMX, skaters, winter sports and outdoors clubs including rock climbers, hikers, fishing, and hunting to name just a few.

In an industry that glorifies the rock star lifestyle, Faisst keeps his fame in check by remaining strong in his faith.  Faisst stands on what the word of God says and realizes God has given him a story that he can tell the world.  His faith keeps him strong in an often times dark and demeaning world.  Faisst seeks to live every aspect of his life to the fullest whether that’s his faith or on his motorcycle.

About Nuclear Cowboyz
This year marks the second year that Faisst has toured with Nuclear CowboyzSM.  The all-new Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos?, which plays at American Airlines Center on January 22 at 7:00PM, is the legend of two powerful freestyle motocross tribes, the Soldiers of Havoc and the Metal Mulisha™, whose survival in their post-apocalyptic world is told through gravity defying and fearless freestyle motocross aerial feats. The Nuclear CowboyzSM mayhem and chaos is literally set in extreme non-stop motion when the tribes are challenged by a dark underworld that begins the ultimate battle for world supremacy. Tickets are available at or by calling 800/745-3000.

In addition to Faisst, the 2011 Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos? tour has the greatest cast of freestyle motocross riders ever assembled, including Adam Jones, Mike Mason, Taka Higashino, Beau Bamburg, Derek Garland, Nixey Danielson, Jim McNeil, Brody Wilson, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Dustin Miller and Jeff Kargola. In addition to these world renowned freestyle motocross riders, trials riders Geoff Aaron and Keith Whineland, along with quad riders Derek Guetter and Colten Moore, take their apocalyptic power to the massive ramps, conveying the action-packed narrative through choreographed, synchronized awe-inspiring tricks and the Nuclear Cowgirlz? dancers.
