Auction time is coming soon....

Motorsports Ministries will be conducting its 27th Annual Silent Auction during the 12 hours of Sebring event.  The dates will be March 16-17, 2017.  The past auctions have been a great success and a lot of fun.  We are once again we are asking for and collecting items for this year’s auction.

Items desired include team uniform clothing (shirts, jackets, hats, etc.), driver suits and helmets, racing memorabilia, pins, patches, artwork and photography (signed if possible), racing parts of interest, products or services of your company, and any other items that may be of interest to racing fans. This is a great way to clean out and reduce old inventory.

Update from MM President, Terry Borcheller 

From all of us at Motorsports Ministries, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have been so grateful to be President of Motorsports Ministries this past year.  We finished the 2016 IMSA season strong and I am able to attend each winter testing in Daytona to see the new cars, manufacturers, and programs for the upcoming season. As I ventured into the future at the testing, it prompted some reflection into the past. 2016 was a great year for us!
Throughout the season we had two chaplains at most events.  Special thanks to Steve Kearney, Steve Geitgey, & Dale Sankey for making this possible. The Anderson family still plays a key role in this ministry with Jen Chiesa running the office, Mat & Katie cover the Long Beach event and Beth covers the ministry in prayer! 
It has been a joy to minister in the various ways we do at the track.  Throughout a race weekend we are able to reach the IMSA safety teams, corner workers, conduct Chapel services, invocations, driver meetings, & our normal race community involvement.  It has truly been a year of growth for us.
In this time of reflection, I can't help but wonder what Richard would think about what we're doing, and I think he'd be smiling. Most of all, I think Jesus is pleased. Pleased that His message of hope, faith, & love is being shared in a place that desperately needs it. I had many conversations throughout the year with people that are lost, broken, hurting, scared, angry and frustrated.  Though their problems couldn’t be easily fixed, many were encouraged by the hope, faith, and love of God through those serving in Motorsports Ministries. Way to go TEAM!
Speaking of team, I want to say thank you to all those involved in the Petit Petit Go Kart fundraiser. WOW! It was our best ever. The Spencer family, their volunteers, Reece, Ramsey Potts as our sponsor, all of the teams, and Jen, a sincere THANK YOU!! We were able to bring out boys from 3 Dimensional Life (ministry founded by Teen Challenge graduate outside of Gainesville, GA) to be a part of the race. These boys that typically are hardened and rebellious were as pliable as a piece of clay. We had a common bond, we were racers! I had several great opportunities to share my story with them, and most importantly I had the opportunity to share the gospel. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. 
As we go through the holiday seasons, please remember to pray for us as we plan for 2017. Also, please remember us in your financial giving. Even though we are in the off season, there are still expenses, tests, updates, reservations, and many other things to be done. 
Thank you for considering giving financially to Motorsports Ministries on a monthly basis, sponsoring a chaplain, or offering a service. This really helps with our plans for the upcoming year. We can't do what we do without you!  
God Bless,
Terry Borcheller 
President
