Our Story

How it all started...

In 2006, Pastor Eug Breinig and his wife, Gwen, planted a church with one major objective in mind, that it would be a place where anyone and everyone would feel comfortable and know they “belong.” Since her inception, This Ain’t Your Mama’s Church, a community bikers’ church, has existed to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ found in The Word of God and His gospel with everyone possible. TAYMC has consistently been recognized as “the church that accepts everyone,” by the citizens of Merced, and  beyond. With Pastor Eug & Gwen at the helm, they fostered an atmosphere wherein everyone feels like they are at home at TAYMC. The bittersweet reality of Pastor Eug Breinig’s home going came far too soon for all who were experiencing the love of Christ, through his ministry and teaching.


Since 2011, TAYMC has continued to serve the biker community of the Central Valley, as well as others who have felt less than comfortable and accepted in more traditional church settings. Although the initial core group and founders of This Ain’t Your Mama’s Church began by focusing primarily on sharing the gospel with “bikers,” the love of Christ has transcended far beyond a specific subculture and dispensed His grace over a wide variety of people throughout Merced. Today, TAYMC is filled with people from all walks of life who come together to enjoy the riches of the gospel, celebrate everything that Jesus has done and continues to do in and for them, and seek opportunities to share the good news with those who have yet to believe. While we still love to ride and most us of find a way to go on a run or a ride together at least once a week, we are well aware that we are first disciples of Jesus Christ, and everything else is secondary. Our story is still being written, and we are blessedly stoked to witness and testify to our story as it works in HiStory. We invite you all to come and share in HiStory with us.
