24-Hour Trucker's Prayer Line: 1-800-248-8662

Covid-19 Statement

Hello, everyone! I'm sure you've been expecting this post. We've all heard from every business & organization we're connected with about COVID-19 and what precautions to take:
2. Use hand sanitizer!
3. Don't touch your face without doing #1 or #2!
4. If you have to be out, try to stay at least 6 ft. away from others if you can. If you can't, refer back to #1-3!
There's no need for hysteria, as God is still in control -- but He also admonishes us to use wisdom!
As a result of the recommendations issued by the CDC, some of our Chapels may be closed for a few weeks, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Some of our Chaplains are in high-risk categories and some aren't, so the decision is left up to our Team Leaders at each location. Regardless, OUR PRAYER LINE (800-248-8662) IS STILL STAFFED, 24/7!
To all you Drivers: We're praying for you out there, that you'll stay safe and well -- and THANK YOU for keeping our stores supplied!
To our Supporters: THANK YOU for keeping our Staff and our Volunteers covered in prayer during this time, especially those who are able to go out and minister. With your continued prayer support and financial generosity, we WILL endure this difficult time.

Dennis and Vicki De Glopper

Chaplain Dennis De Glopper serves as Regional Director in the South Mid-West Region

Vicki and I were married in 1978 and have three beautiful daughters, Karen (1982), Elizabeth (1987) and Denise (1990). We became Christians in 1986 after a series of family crises. It took quite a lot for God to get our attention. We started attending church regularly and soon became active in Sunday School and I taught Bible Classes for church training. Later, we both took on the responsibility of leading children’s church. In 1995 I felt that God was calling me into the ministry, but I was not sure where or when. Later that year He opened the door for me to become a lay minister in the pastoral care department at Wilford Hall Air Force Hospital. This has been a very rewarding ministry and in many ways prepared me for the truckstop ministry. I was licensed into the ministry in 1996 at Harmony Hills Baptist Church. One of the high points of my life occurred in 1997 when I was blessed with the opportunity to participate in the Billy Graham Crusade as a counselor/supervisor and then as a Bible teacher in the follow-up campaign.

In June, 2005 I was endorsed by the North American Mission board as a North American Missionary. We got involved in Truckstop Ministries due to the efforts of one of our church members who is in the trucking industry and has a great desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread to truckers across the country. In the years we have served at the truck stop we have seen many truckers find real peace and joy through accepting Jesus as their personal savior. We see a field white unto harvest and have answered God’s call upon our lives to serve Him full time with Truckstop Ministries, Inc. Please pray about supporting this location and this ministry.
