DIVISION CHAPLAINS

The recent tragedy which took the life of multi-time Top Sportsman World Champion, Ronnie Davis, and critically injured longtime drag racing journalist, Ian Tocher, has rocked the heart of the drag racing community. Davis succumbed to injuries on Sunday, April 10, after a violent top end crash during the last qualifying session at the PDRA Spring Nationals on Saturday, April 9. The car made contact with Tocher during the crash, as he was photographing the event. Tocher is being treated for injuries at UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill.

 

In order to help cover medical costs for Davis and “Bridge the Gap” while Tocher is sidelined for recovery, God Speed Ministry has opened donation accounts for each gentleman. One hundred percent of donations to those accounts will go directly to their needs.

 

To donate to Tocher’s medical and other expenses follow this link: IAN TOCHER.

 

To help the Davis family cover his medical expenses use the following link: RONNIE DAVIS.

 

To give where most needed use the general BRIDGE THE GAP Fund.

 

God Speed Ministry takes no fees and one hundred percent of donations to the Bridge the Gap Fund go directly to the individuals in need. So far the racing community has helped several individuals through God Speed Ministry’s Bridge the Gap Fund with donations upwards of $50,000 distributed in the last several years. All donations are also tax deductible and donors will receive a tax statement at the end of the year.

 

Prognosis for Tocher is very promising and has already been deemed miracle status.

 

Ronnie finished the race of life tonight and won the ultimate victory as the PDRA Spring Nationals at Rockingham Dragway crowned its champions. Ronnie also received his crown in glory for winning the ultimate race of life.

Ronnie was critically injured during his last qualifying pass at Rockingham on Saturday in a violent top end crash. It is with heavy hearts that we bid him farewell. It is with grateful hearts we thank God for having had the privilege of knowing and loving him.

Please continue to pray for his daughters Michelle Seger and Bridgett Medina and grandchildren of Texas, his longtime companion Micki Dearing and best friend Pete of Suwanee as they mourn.

Godspeed Ronnie!!

CAMM logo

The Christian Association of Motorsports Ministries (CAMM), launched this year, was birthed out of a heart to see the various ministries which serve the motorsports community come together to support and pray for one another. 

“We believe this to be in response to God’s heart that ‘they may be even as we are one’ as Jesus prayed in John 17,” informed God Speed Ministry President, Renee Bingham. “The name was given to Mark Walter of JAMA [Jesus And Me Always] Racing Ministry back in 2004 while in prayer.  Mark and his wife Joanne diligently tried to launch it then, but now understand the timing was for a later time.”

As the various motorsports ministries began working together in greater capacities at racing events and trade shows, it became evident that the time for CAMM was right. Talk of needing a unified voice for the ministries began at last year’s motorsports ministries prayer summit at the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show. CAMM was proposed as the vehicle and agreed upon by the ministries present at the meeting.  And so, CAMM was born.  

Currently, CAMM has four members, including God Speed Ministry, Racers for Christ, Racing with Jesus Ministries, and Christian Outreach Racers Evangelism.

CAMM extends an open invitation for their events held in conjunction with the PRI Show, December 10-12 in Indianapolis, Indiana. All events will be held in Room 114 and are open to both PRI attendees and non-attendees.

The Annual Motorsports Prayer Summit will be held Friday, December 10, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., moderated by Renee Bingham of God Speed Ministry. This will be a time to pray for the motorsports community, including tracks, officials, racers, sponsors, and ministries.

A nondenominational Chapel Service will be held Saturday, December 11 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Message will be delivered by Don Rivers of Racing with Jesus Ministries.

A Motorsports Ministry Roundtable Discussion will be held immediately following the Chapel Service from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. This event will be moderated by Joey Keith and Eddie Baugher of Racers for Christ. The discussion will include topics concerning the importance of ministry at motorsports events and ways to better serve the racing community. A time will be given for open questions.

Please make plans to attend these events. For more information contact Renee Bingham (Renee@GodSpeedMinistry.com) or Joey Keith (joey@Core-Ministry.com).

Faith that does not move you will not move God. Faith, true faith, always moves a person to take action. It may be internal – a resolution of belief that now governs all your decisions and actions. It may be external – a decision to take a particular job, share your testimony, start a summer day camp, or call that person that “pops” into your thoughts out of the blue even though it has been years since you’ve spoken.

Faith without corresponding action is useless/worthless. James the brother of Jesus said: “Are you willing to know, O empty man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:10 Strong’s Concordance gives this meaning of empty: destitute of spiritual wealth, of one who boasts of his faith as a transcendent possession, yet is without the fruits of faith. James goes on to say: “Just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.” James 2:26

A fellow believer and I were talking recently when this subject came up. We discussed how faith moves us to take action on that conviction. That’s how God Speed began a one week day camp for kids in our rural community. Last year we expanded to 2 weeks. Seven of the eight children in week 2 made professions of faith. The older youth of the first week camp were mentored in prophesying and laying hands on the sick or hurting. They spoke words of prophesy which ministered to others in the group. They laid hands on broken bones and saw them healed. They moved with actions that corresponded to their faith. Their lives were forever changed. Now they are poised to change their world.

What action will you take to change the world? How will you make your corner of it better?

Maybe you’re afraid of failing. But Christians ‘practice’ Christianity just like doctors ‘practice medicine.’ We grow in our faith and our abilities as we put our faith into action. And just like a child who is learning to walk, we will fail and fall. But we have to try it again, fall, get up and DO IT again until we OWN IT.

If you’ve been reading our monthly letters this year we’ve tried to mentor you in the process of change step by step. (Those letters are available upon request if you missed them. Contact us at the info at the bottom of the letter.) But let’s review.
1. CHANGE! What pressure point in your life needs to change? Identify the area. See the picture of your current life situation. Whatever you take in will produce a picture in your mind and ultimately create the reality of your life. The picture comes from God’s word or the world’s word. God’s word can root out the world’s vision and replace it with His life giving vision.
2. SEE IT! State your complaint or need, position yourself before God, get quiet, listen & watch for His answer to your issue.
Steps to Change:
A. Ask God for a new picture. Be transformed by the entire renewal of your mind.
* God pictures usually ‘pop’ into our minds – we don’t manufacture them.
* They show a new reality.
* They address the ‘why’ behind our current way of doing in order to free us.
* They change the emotions from death (stress, fear, stymied, negative) to life (peace, joy, excitement, love, positive).
* They energize.
* They give hope and direction.
B. Write the Vision ….Habbukkuk – Write it down! The enemy will come to steal the truth of it, destroy your hope of achieving and finally kill it. Write it down. God wrote out his vision (the Bible). We do well to follow His lead. Also Jesus rebuked the devil’s 3 temptations by stating, “It is written.” Since the devil is a legalist he likes to ‘see’ proof. Write it down and date it. Remember I said God gave a vision on January 5, 2005. I wrote it down and dated it. I still have it.
C. Own it! Take possession of it and use it. Do it!

Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in California said, “The church does not need more teachers. The church needs more mentors. We need to put into practice the word we’ve heard.”
I agree. I look for people who are ahead of me in an area of life I want to improve or grow. I can be mentored by them in person, by their videos, classes, books or cd’s. But then I still have to DO It! I have to put it into action. And just like a child who is learning to walk, I fail and fall. But I have to try, fall, get up and DO IT again until I OWN IT.

So how will you change the world?
What thing has God given you to do, that only you can do, that will meet His purpose at this point in time? Will you OWN IT? Will you DO IT till you complete it? To quote the shoe maker: JUST DO IT!
