The Need for Local Church Involvement in the Trucking Industry

TLondon_OH_Chapelhere are an estimated 8.5 million trucker drivers in the U.S.  With many of these drivers being long haul, over-the-road drivers, this represents a huge field of opportunity for evangelism and discipleship.

Truckers face unique stresses every day. Besides the day to day stress of driving itself, many face financial problems, marital problems, loneliness, and depression. Many unsaved drivers find the answer to their problems in trucker chapels across the nation. At times, these drivers find that they cannot cope with the problems on their own. They wander into a truck stop chapel hoping to find some answers or encouragement. This is where many have found a new life and new beginning by hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

There are also many truckers who are Christians who have to be away from their families and home churches for weeks at a time. Truckers chapels in truck stops across the nation provide Christian fellowship, encouragement, worship, and solid Bible teaching to help them in their daily living and witnessing on the road.

Truckers' Christian Chapel Ministries, Inc. (TCCM) partners with local churches across the nation to establish and maintain chapels for truckers in truck stops across the USA. We work with the local church from the beginning in a step by step process to accomplish this goal.

TCCM also provides:

  • Gospel CD’s & DVD's in every one of our Chapels. There are currently 16 different messages on tapes & CD’s along with Gospel Music related to the message of salvation. We ask the drivers to listen to it, then pass it on to another driver. These tapes are high quality produced by our Technical Department. Thousands are distributed annually.
  • Bible studies CD’s, in booklet form, through the Internet with drivers and families,
  • A web site presence with trucker related pages and salvation messages,
  • An 800 number for immediate needs,
  • Church follow up, counseling, Chapel Services and continued fellowship with like believers.
  • We are also providing the New Testament on CD’s, our latest venture. We are also looking for Spanish Interpreters to aid us in translation of all our materials.

This non-denominational outreach is rewarding in turning around the lives of the people who provide us with everything, from the basic staples in our stores to high tech defense materials protecting our Nation. Since our humble beginnings, God has provided us with over 116 Chapels, and the dedicated people to minister to our nations truckers. Our ongoing training and communication leads our people across thousands of miles each year visiting and setting up new ministries. Our Mission dedicates itself to further the cause for Christ.
Won’t you please prayerfully consider how God would have you relate to our ministry?

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
