Evangelist brings his message to Pulaski

It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, God is only interested in where you’re going.
That’s the message evangelist Mike Price hopes to bring to the Pulaski community this weekend during a revival to be held at Pentecostal United Holy Church in Pulaski. Everyone is invited to attend the revival, which begins at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 6 p.m. Sunday.
The former Christiansburg resident, who was caught up in the rough world of bikers and drugs for much of his early life, has been headed in a new direction for the past decade. He hasn’t given up his motorcycle, but, now, he says, he is “riding for a higher purpose.”
Price, who now lives in Bassett, said he wants to spread God’s message of love and forgiveness, so he has been traveling throughout the region telling the story of how God transformed his life of bitterness and hatred.
“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” Price says, recalling a conversation he had with a man who is a professed atheist. He said the man asked him “what if you’re wrong” and there isn’t anything beyond death. He said his response was, “If I am, what has it cost me? But if you’re wrong, what’s it going to cost you?”
Price’s revivals are open to everyone. In fact, if you’re a professed atheist or a drug addict, he says he hopes you’ll attend because those are the people he feels God’s message most needs to reach. Although he may be delivering the message, he gives all the credit to God, adding “it’s not about Mike Price.”
He also doesn’t care how those who attend his services are dressed. He often wears jeans and a t-shirt, but, given the recent cold weather, he expects he’ll have on some kind of long sleeves this weekend.
He got saved around 10 years ago when his father, and “hero,” asked him to attend a play about heaven and hell. He said he was full of hatred back then and didn’t really trust anyone.
Although his transformation didn’t happen immediately or overnight, Price says he came to know Christ after that night and started to turn his life around.
At first, he cut his hair, got rid of his motorcycle and started wearing long-sleeved shirts to hide the tattoos that prominently cover his arms. He said he once had a woman ask him how it felt to know he couldn’t be saved because of the tattoos.
But, over time, he came to realize God isn’t concerned about his tattoos or whether he likes to ride a motorcycle, so he took off the long “hot” sleeves and bought another Harley.
Hundreds recently turned out at a “Biker Bash” revival he held in Galax, and he likes to spread his message at the “biker weeks” at Myrtle Beach, S.C.
He is working with the federal park systems to try to get approval to hold some revivals along the Blue Ridge Parkway, another popular destination for the biking world.
However, Price stresses that his target audience isn’t just bikers. Anyone who is hurting or in need of some type of healing is encouraged to attend the revival, he said.
He’s seen hundreds get saved and turn their lives over to Christ over the years.
Plus, he’s also seen a lot of healing miracles, he said.
Price works in construction, but his revival schedule is getting so busy he says he will probably eventually give up his job to preach full time.
