Taupo Chapter

Our Chapter Leader is: Carl Chaytor.
Carl was drawn to the CMA ministry through his brother who was part of the West Auckland Chapter. The Lord provided a bike ( a Kawasaki Sports Tourer ) as Carl did not own one at the time. Carl was the first member in Taupo joined by his wife Jasmine about a year later. He has two children, one a CMA Youth Member and riding himself. Carl has a passion to serve through CMA and feels blessed to be able to ride for our lord impacting both motorcyclists and non motorcyclists alike.

Our Secretary is: Rachel Matsen.
Wife of John (also a member of CMA Taupo) since 2004. I am busy stay-at-home/homeschooling mum of two lovely boys. In my spare time I love reading, spending time with my family, and (when we can get away!) riding pillion on the back of John’s bike. I am so honoured and excited to be a part of CMA NZ and cannot wait to see what God has for us as Taupo chapter and as CMA NZ in the future.

Our Treasurer is: Jasmine Chaytor.
Jasmine became a Christian in her late teens.  Although Jasmine does not have a passion for motorcycles, being brought up in a non-Christian, single-parent family she has developed a passion for supporting youth at risk.  Within CMA this translates to being of support for the biker’s whanau and also providing a support role for the group.  Jasmine has youthwork qualifications and 10 years experience as a volunteer in various administration and leadership roles within Scouts. 

Our Road Captain is: Jase Preston.
Hi everyone. I’m Jase, and I’m a bike-aholic. (Hey Jase – everyone says).  I absolutely love riding. I believe that the only two beings that know what a biker feels like are dogs sticking their heads out of the open car window, and Angels as they’re flying along all-the-while keeping us safe! I became a Christian at the age of 9, and have served Jesus Christ ever since. I’m 40+ now and my love of God grows more and more every day. I was married in 1997 and have two beautiful children. I have a passion for motorcycling (I’ve been riding since 2010) and a huge passion for serving the biker community. I look forward to seeing where the Lord wants me to go next on this journey with CMA. BRING IT ON!!!
