Father Glenn O’Connor will continue to be our Catholic Priest and is coordinating all of the priests that will be conducting mass at the away races. You will see Father Glenn at some of those races and, of course, you will see him in Indy!

Chuck Lessick and Jason Holt have joined the team as part-time chaplains for 2016. Both of these guys have a huge heart for Jesus and a racing background. They will split the travel season schedule, so one of them will be at each event. You may see both of them at Indy since they both reside in Indianapolis. They will be doing all the things IndyCar Ministry does on race weekends such as praying with drivers and teams, being a part of chapel services and being available for hospital visitation. If you see any of our chaplains in the paddock area, please make them feel welcome!

We are also very thankful for our faithful volunteers and Winner’s Circle Leaders that volunteer their time to help as they work for the Lord in this ministry!

With all the changes and a new season looming, we sometimes have a tendency to get overwhelmed and intimidated by the newness, changes, logistics, and preparation.

Listen to this good news from Deuteronomy 31:8 – “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

We know at IndyCar Ministry, that God has gone before us. That He is present in our lives and is leading and guiding this ministry. We know since He is always with us that we can trust Him in all things and with all things. And if we do that, we never have to be afraid or discouraged since we know He is ultimately in control. Thanks for your continued support!
