PREACHER to outlaw motorcyclists, reverend John "Bullfrog" Smith will rumble into town this weekend for a special presentation at Bundaberg Bible Chapel.

The former Childers teacher is credited with starting God's Squad - an international motorcycle club that provides chaplaincy and guidance to outlaw motorcycle club members.

Dr Smith and other God's Squad members have acted as pastors for members of Australian bikie gangs such as Bandidos, Finks, Rebels, Nomads and Hell's Angels.

The God's Squad motorcycle club has spread globally with chapters established in Europe, the US and the UK.

Mr Smith has become known as a protector of the marginalised and disadvantaged during a career that has included a presentation given with former US president Jimmy Carter and an address to the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

Bundaberg Bible Chapel elder Graham Gaston said the church was pleased to be able to bring Mr Smith's message to the community.

"He has a pretty special message to share."
