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:
1. WASH. YOUR. HANDS!
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.

Be called of God to minister to Truck Drivers. (Have a desire to reach the lost as well as minister to the body of Christ who are on the road).

Be available.

What will be expected of me as a volunteer (typical Sunday morning at a truck stop):

Arrive two hours prior to starting time, pray over Location Guides, and walk around handing out Location Guides inviting the Drivers to meeting. Where possible, one hour prior, make announcements on P/A system. 

Start meeting on time by handing out Bibles that are stuffed with attendance report concealed at back page; music is good, but not required. 

Let them know the Bibles are free in case they want to make notes in them. 

CHAPLAINS/MISSIONARY DRIVERS: Because of the Drivers’ schedules, keep meeting to an hour, including giving invitation at end. Then offer to talk to and pray with any Driver who wants to talk privately. 

At end, announcements include: “Please fill out the attendance form as a record of your attendance, and place in donation box on your way out.” 

Pick up and store all materials. Be sure the room (area) is clean when you are finished.
