Over the past 50 years, Team RFC has expanded from a small ministry to one of the lead motorsports ministries in the world. Here, you will learn about our vision, mission and motto. In addition to this, we share a small snippet of our history. Also, discover our approach to ministry, as well as our beliefs and how we are structured. Finally, see what we have discovered throughout our 50 years of serving the world of motorsports.
Our vision is to see the world of motorsports impacted for Jesus Christ by individuals entering into a personal relationship with Him and then growing in those relationships.
Our mission is to serve people in the world of motorsports in the name of Jesus Christ. We strive to fulfill this mission through providing fellowship, pastoral care, evangelism, and service.
Bringing Inspiration to the World of Motorsports
RFC is a non-denominational ministry to the world of motorsports. As such, we believe it is vital to maintain a basic, evangelical doctrine and statement of faith. Although our staff come from a variety of doctrinal backgrounds and personal beliefs, we strive to prevent RFC from being identified with any particular denomination or church affiliation.
Our official Statement of Faith, therefore, stresses the most essential doctrines and tenets of our faith, as we strive to maintain doctrinal integrity at all times.
We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit
We Believe in the present and ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose in-dwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life
We Believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
We Believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We Believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ.
Staff and Leadership
Board of Directors
Our board of directors provide leadership, financial oversight, and direction for the ministry as the governing board.
Ministry firsts in Motorsports
Throughout the last 50 years, God’s faithful blessing has enabled us to envision and fulfill a number of 1st’s in our exciting ministry to motorsports. We have developed the following over the years:
The first ongoing Protestant chapel service for the Indianapolis 500.
The first Prayer Breakfast for the Specialty Equipment Market Association.(SEMA) and SCORE Off-Road shows.
The first “official chaplain” appointed by a national race-sanctioning organization.
The first network of official track chaplains at racing facilities coast-to-coast.
It Takes a Team
Throughout ministry, two prominent lessons have been reinforced. First, God is always faithful in His vision, and, second, it takes a team of dedicated people to bring that vision into fulfillment. Those who deserve recognition for the success of Team RFC are our faithful ministry partners and volunteer staff. We could not fulfill the vision and challenge God has set before us without their support.
As a non-profit ministry, we have no other source of income than the donations we receive. These come from our wonderful ministry partners who believe in us and wish to become part of our challenging vision.
