It is our Goal to bring attention to the world that JESUS IS LORD! To bring the good news of JESUS CHRIST to people by getting attention with this race team! That's why we are JC RACING TEAM!
Because we are a race team we can reach people that the church may not!
Back when I was much younger, I got caught on fire with
gasoline and had 2nd & 3rd degree burns.
I still have some of the scars today to prove it.
I think how terrible it is for people to go through such things.
Part of the reason I started JC Racing Team was to be able to have an
opportunity to talk to kids and explain to them the dangers of gasoline.
People should never use gasoline to start a fire no matter how wet the
wood is. What people don’t
realize is that the fumes are what ignites.
I also was concerned about how to get attention for the
Lord. Auto racing has become very
popular in the past 10 years. So I
took something I knew and used it as a tool to get both messages out to help
others. I am a minister, so I use
the racing to tell people that Jesus Cares about them.
It also reaches young children with racecar toys and especially teenagers
who might not otherwise be in a church and have an opportunity to hear anything
about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have discovered over the past few years that we not
only reach people who don’t know the Lord, but we also seem to be a great
encouragement to those who do. The
young Christians are especially excited about the messages on the car.
All the advertising and marketing these days seem to be focused on how to make our life easier and better. But in all the hype, there doesn’t seem to be much out there to get attention for the Lord. There is not much media asking the question “Where are you going to spend eternity?” So being a minister, I wanted to find a way to get attention to bring across what is really most important in all our lives SALVATION!
Our message is simple.
The hood reads “Jesus Cares” and the spoiler reads “Jesus is
Lord” and on the sides of the car reads “Jesus Saves”.
said to go out to the highways and hedges and compel them to come in.
We have a racecar that is doing just that.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal
life. (John 3:16)
This is our car number and it says it all.
If He can sacrifice his Son for us, this is the least we can do for Him.
Thank You Heavenly Father for Your Amazing Grace.

JC RACING TEAM REPORT!!
As we grow and reach more and more people, we give out more and more promo cards and business cards with the word of God on them. It gives us the church, the chance to witness for the Lord. But it also increases our cost as well but the witnessing comes first. If you own a business you could advertise your business with us and cut your taxable income! That would help our budget!
We have been able to witness to more people in one day than some churches reach in a year. We also reach children of all ages, I remember one teenager, I think he was sixteen. He and another younger boy stopped me and wanted to talk to me. They said they were so proud of the car and they wanted some cards they could give out to their friends at school and church. You see the kids today have so much to go and do and not all of it is good for them. It's hard for the youth to reach out to them, but the Christmobile is a racecar, a special kind of racecar it gets attention. I gave them what cards I had with me. God only knows who was touched with those cards. That gave those boys a tool they could use to talk to some of their friends about auto racing and they had a business card from a race team. That gave them a chance to start the conversation and the photo business card moves the conversation to the Lord. It's Great!
A few weeks ago I spoke to a young man who said he wanted to be a Christian but he didn't understand that much about it. I was able to talk to him about the Lord and what it means to be saved and what is means to be a Christian. I thank God for that chance to talk to that young man!
With a race team we build a fan base of many people most are Christians. To see the Christmobile out there is hard to explain, people will come and look all over it, they see the words JESUS IS LORD over the front tires and on the rear spoiler. They also see that JESUS CARES telling them he cares about them and then they see JESUS SAVES!! And then we give them a card and on the back of the card is the verse John 3:16 and Romans 10: 9
The short message we have on the car not only touches the Lost but it also helps Christians as well. For example I got a call from a man out of state and he said he looked up the scriptures on the car behind the front tire. John 3:16, Matt 7:12, Luke 1:37, and Matt 6:33 He said he got his bible and looked up those scriptures and was so blessed when he read them he had to make that long distance call and tell me how the word touched him. That's not the only call I received like that, Gods word will not return void! He is touching people and I'm so glad to be part of it.
Look at what auto racing advertises on the cars. All types of business advertise their products. We as Christians know that God gave his son for our sins and he came that we could have life and have it more abundantly John 10:10. So why not advertise the Lord and proclaim to the world that JESUS IS LORD!
