Welcome!  We are so glad you have joined us.
 
OUR MISSION
 

We exist to connect people to God and each other,

ever growing a community of faith.

BELIEVE

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

VISION

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.

GROW

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.

God Speed Ministry Co-Founder and Lead Chaplain Renee Bingham says “God Speed Ministry is blessed to have Joy Scott join our team to reach the motorsports nation with the love of God.  Joy’s talents and skills are excellent and will serve this ministry extremely well.  But it is her heart to impact people for good that is her highest asset.  We know she will be a blessing to all she encounters. “

CHAPLAINS

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.

VOLUNTEER MINISTRIES

Where can God use your talents?

WORSHIP

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.
 

InVISION Youth

MISSION:

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.

MEDIA/TECH

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

JOURNALISM

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.
