About Us

Over the last half century, 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 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.


The mission of Racers For Christ is to train, equip, and send chaplains to serve the spiritual, emotional, and practical needs of people in the world of motorsports.


Fueling Faith

The Gospel and the World of Motorsports

Racers For Christ was established in 1971 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1978. We started out as a fellowship for Christians. Over time, we have developed into a growing organization with broad impact across North America and internationally. You can find the Christian Motorsports International, Inc. family of ministries at more than 2,000 racing events each year. This includes drag racing, open-wheel racing, motorcycle racing, boat racing, stock car racing, off-road racing, airplane racing, and street rodding events.

We realize that racing is more than just a mechanized existence.  It is our desire to bring a more balanced perspective to racing by providing chaplains to help people in the world of motorsports see, feel and be impacted by the love of Jesus.

We are a spiritual ministry concerned with the soul of man. Therefore, our message for mankind is that through faith and trust in Jesus Christ, one can be forgiven and cleansed from the power of sin. Forgiveness can only be achieved through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross. We strongly believe and affirm that only a relationship with Jesus Christ and the application of the Word of God truly and completely change lives.

The knowledge that we have been forgiven through Jesus Christ and that we no longer need to be controlled by sin becomes a motivation to change our values and lifestyle. However, we cannot do this ourselves. Christ within gives us the power to overcome sin. When we invite Him into our lives, His fullness replaces the emptiness that once existed, and life becomes truly rich and full.

Staff and Leadership

Office Staff

Our office staff support all of our field staff through everyday tasks that are crucial to a healthy ministry.

Region Directors

Team RFC is split into eight regions. The region director oversees the ministry events that occur in their region.

Special Ministry Directors

In addition to regions, we have chaplains who oversee specialty races or racing series.

Board of Directors

Our board provides leadership, financial oversight, and direction for the ministry as the governing board.


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.

The Bible

We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

Jesus Christ

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.

The Trinity

We Believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Resurrection

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.

The Church

We Believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ.

Ministry firsts in Motorsports

Over the decades, God’s faithful blessing has enabled us to envision and fulfill a number of firsts 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 breakfasts 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.
