Welcome!  We are so glad you have joined us.

We exist to connect people to God and each other,

ever growing a community of faith.


We believe the Bible to be the infallible inspired word of God.  It conveys God’s will and purpose for humanity and this world.  It gives practical instruction of how to live a life of purpose, Godliness and peace with God, ourselves and others.
Our statement of Belief and The Apostle’s Creed


It is our vision to build a community of faith in the drag racing family, from racers to fans.  It is our desire for everyone to be aware of the salvation Jesus Christ purchased for them with His death.  To present the opportunity to accept or decline that gift.  To increase the faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ in those who profess Him as Savior.  To make you aware of the divine inheritance here in this life as well as in eternity.  We are here to help you walk in the abundant life Jesus came to give  and to experience the ultimate victory you seek.


Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place to learn, then put into practice the principles found in scripture.  Christianity is practical applications of God’s Word in everyday life.  We ‘do it afraid’ and experience God’s Presence with us and Power in us.

We proclaim and study the Word, practice what we learn, and progress in our Christian walk together.  Together is key as we learn and encourage one another in our walk with God.  Join us as we Proclaim.  Practice.  Progress.


Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

II Corinthians 5:20

Putting our faith into action through service.

 Chaplains impact the lives of the race teams, officials and fans for good: providing a shoulder on which to cry, a strong arm to support in tragedy and sorrow, an encouraging word during a crucial round loss and the light of God shining through smiling faces as well as their flaws and God’s ordained weaknesses.

All Christians are salt. Salt is a very common seasoning. Chaplains are common people. They are simply doing what God put in them to do with the gifts and talents He put within them. The only difference is they have climbed upon the mountain of fear and doubt – “Who me?” “I’m no preacher!” “God should send someone to be a chaplain. I’m not qualified.” – to stand as a representative of God Almighty, trusting Him to put the words in their mouths, trusting Him to give the strength, endurance and resources for the task assigned.

We all have found God to be faithful and true as we watch Him work in our lives and those of our fellow racers.

Prayer Requests
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.  Galatians 6:2  
9.26.18  From Allison Hall:  Tom Vanbeek who runs Top Sportsman, had a heart attack last week and while in the hospital waiting for open heart surgery he also had a stroke. His son is Nathan.   Please pray for Tom’s recovery and for his family during this time.
9.25.18  From Betty Edwards:  keep John Robinson in your prayers.  He is a photographer and was at GALOT PDRA. He lost his daughter the other night. She was 32 with a husband and 2 small kids.
From Chaplain Deborah Tankersley:  My granddaughter, Raedan’s boyfriend Cooper, was on the list for a heart- lung transplant. Cooper received his new organs last month.  Even though his Dad has insurance it will not pay for all of his meds. So I’m asking first of all that everyone pray for him, Cooper Pierce, 17 yr old high school senior, Fultondale, AL. Second, and I know budgets are tight and you don’t know Cooper but if you can go on this Go Fund Me link and give if you are able and then share the link with your friends so they can pray and/or give.         Thank you in advance for I know what great prayer warriors you are.  
9.23.18  From Chaplain David Merrill:  We were at Keystone Raceway Friday night Saturday and Sunday. There was a 10 year old boy named Gage fell off of his parents golf cart while at the track. They are from Beaver Springs Raceway. We prayed with their track manager Mike Murdock, also followed up with Jon O’Neill and Greg Miller. I left our card with another Beaver Springs staff. Gage was transported to Latrobe hospital then to children hospital in ICU for a head injury. Last report he was moved to Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh to a private room and doing better.

  Jeff Hagaman, a North Carolina man driving more than 200 mph (320 kph) has been killed after his vehicle crashed during a race Saturday at NOLA Motorsports Park.  Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glen T. Boyd says the fatality happened about 9:20 a.m. Saturday. Times-Picayune reports the man was competing in a public event, with drivers taking turns trying to establish the fastest time. Only one vehicle at a time is on the track during these “controlled runs.”  Upon exceeding 200 mph (320 kph), officials say the man’s vehicle spun and crashed. Boyd says no one else was injured.   Pray for his wife Candis, his little boy and girl. From Thomas Pope:  M.L. Core used to race the “Double Trouble” Nova before Dennis Hill. (He also bought Billy Dewitt’s “Steel Warrior” at one point)   ML found out last week that his cancer is back and he has fluid on his heart again, gallbladder leaking poison in his system and had heart attack about 2 am this morning. Dr says gallbladder has to removed soon but don’t know if he is strong enough for surgeryh now or not. Thanks for the prayers for Renee Bingham. She is finally recovering and was able to eat a little  for the first in 4 days Sunday evening.

Taking God’s Word to the World



Where can God use your talents?


God-honoring worship is something we strive for. We need more people to provide music for services.    Some play instruments. Others sing.  Do you love to sing but want a group?  Start a choir!
Testimonies encourage and build  faith.  Let us know if you want to share yours.
Liturgical/Praise dance
adds beauty and deep emotionalism to the service. God can be worshiped though dance like David did.
Worship volunteers are an important part of ministry, using their talents and gifts to glorify God and minister.



To glorify God and build His kingdom by bringing youth to a greater realization of Who God is, the vision He has for their lives, and who they are in Jesus Christ.

 Proverbs 29:18 states,
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
We feel young people today have lost their vision of who they were created to be, Who God is, and the truth about life on this earth. Therefore they have cast off restraint and indulged in many destructive acts and many are perishing.  We want to combat this by helping them envision God’s best for their lives and helping them to be in line with the vision of God’s kingdom. In short, we want to give them hope for an abundant life in Christ.

Kids on Track is a program for kids ages 2-11. We use thrilling Bible stories in God’s word to teach values and character from God’s perspective. The program consists of:

Using media to spread the gospel is crucial to this ministry. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. Sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook, YouTube, App and Twitter feed for additional communication.  Volunteers are needed to photograph, video, edit, post and share sermons, chaplains in the field and testimonies.  Please contact us to help. This is an area of great need and great potential.  704-473-4212


Communicating the gospel through shared stories of testimonies, overcoming struggles and lessons learned is time honored. Jesus used it greatly. People love stories. We need them. They build faith. They glorify God. But only if they are captured and shared through writing, video or audio. Often people want to share but are unsure of how to write it. Volunteers are needed to help us produce the monthly discipleship letter, eConnections, CrossTalk, KOT & InVision newsletters, social media, the website and apps.



Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. We are a body of believers’ dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Throughout the week our Prayer Warriors pray for this ministry, the Board of Directors, the chaplains & their families, any special requests, and event prayer needs. God has given us a vision of 12,000 people praying for this ministry to become a moving force for His Kingdom here on earth.  Will you join us?  Email

and tell us you are one of the 12,000.  You will receive a monthly special newsletter with specific requests, needs and stories of answered prayers.
