Cossack Chaplain Pinky
Chaplain Patrick "Pinky" Goldston was born 02/19/1963 in Pittsburg, California. In 1966 his parents moved the family back to Texas. Chaplain Pinky grew up in Odessa, Texas and went into the USAF from 1981 to 1983 where he obtained top secret clearance to work on the fuel system of the SR-71 during an emergency situation that caused the Blackbird to land at his base at Langley AFB in VA.
He started riding motorcycles at about 14 (dirt bikes) and bought a Sport bike when he was 25. He didn't ride from 29 to 44, then bought a Kawasaki which he promptly traded for his first and only (so far) Harley.
Chaplain Pinky started his journey with Christ at the age of 13 at which point he promptly started rebelling against the world, which led him down a road of drug addiction and self-loathing for over three decades. He always knew the Holy Spirit was within him but just didn't know how to handle it. He hid from it through hard and fast living. He eventually became ordained through Universal Life Ministries in Sacramento California 2005 while still being an active addict. Within a couple of years of being ordained he hit rock bottom in his life, yet could hear God speaking to him.
When Chaplain Pinky decided join the brotherhood of the Cossack Nation, bringing his spirituality, he was the president (and founder) of the "Jesus Freaks MC." Because of the by-laws and priorities of the Cossacks MC, he felt drawn to become a Cossack and knows he can better serve God as a Cossack Chaplain.
“I am not a preacher, I am a praiser!,” declares Chaplain Pinky. He freely admits, “I don't know the Bible very well but I am always trying to learn more and always willing to listen to another with love, understanding , forgiveness and acceptance.” And, “We all are sinners, we all have secrets from our past that can and do control our present if we let it. But through the strength of the Trinity we don't have to let the past control the present. The Past is a poison that kills your present. So seek the peace of The Holy Savior and have your ‘todays’ to build your ‘tomorrows’ on... Rubber down chrome up and God first!!! Be blessed! CFFC!!”
Chaplain Pinky has 3 biological children and 3 step children . He is married to Jenny "Tumbles" Goldston and holds that she is truly a gift from God to complete him.
