Listen to the CD "Channel 21 Ministries"
Channel 21 Ministries has been developed due to a growing need in the trucking industry for some structure between family life and the life of a trucker. Carriers have many needs but none of these needs can be fulfilled without a well balanced driver behind the wheel of their truck. Society puts a lot of pressure on the working man and women today. Drivers have to maintain a healthy family life and also healthy working relationship with their employer. The carriers of today are measured not just by the lowest rate but by service. Most customers maintain a low inventory and this requires carriers to have a fleet of drivers that can pick up and deliver on time and in a safe manner. Many eyes are on the driver to ensure he/she performs their job in a manner that meets the carrier’s requirements. Pressure brought on by CSA and the driving public puts a lot of pressure on the drivers.
Most drivers have a family life that the industry isn't at all too kind to. Drivers get home late on weekends and many times has to leave out early. The time spent with the family is valuable time, but it puts stress on a driver that has little ones at home and little time at home. Drivers have the same issues at home as a person with a nine to five job. The industry requires drivers to be professional, courteous and dependable at all times; they have pressure most of us will never know.
Channel 21 Ministries is blessed to have several licensed and ordained ministers as Chaplains in our ministry. These men and women have been licensed by other licensing agencies. Channel 21 Ministries is not a licensing body. Our Chaplains are following

30 days of Ministry
For the past 30 days March 11th – April 9th Channel 21 has been blessed by being able to fellowship and witness with other ministries. March the 9th we rode out to Colorado with Gary Rayburn of Rig Ministries and Joe Arview. It was two day drive of fellowship and fun. Joe is an awesome man of God with a great since of humor. Poor Gary had to tolerate us for two days out there and two days back. Johnson’s Chapel in Loveland Colorado sponsored this Salvation Celebration at the Best Western Plus motel in Loveland. We were honored to be a part of this event. Tony MC Mullen was the main speaker on Friday night, there were several that answered the call of Jesus. On Saturday night Rev Terry Hopkins gave his testimony. In all nine folks gave their hearts to the Lord. Rev Terry baptized eight of them in the “JORDAN RIVER” (see photos) on Saturday afternoon. Were went to Johnson’s Corner truck stop on Sunday morning. Ken Wolf of Johnson’s Corner chapel spoke and Rev Terry closed out the weekend with another awesome message. Brother Joe Arview led us in praise and worship in all the meetings. Chaplains Jim and Ann Davenport blessed us with testimonies and songs as well. It blesses our hearts to hear them sing to the Lord. They are truly blessed with talent from God.
Then March 29th – April 2nd we were at the Mid America Truck Show in Louisville Ky. It was amazing to see God pour out His Spirit to all of those drivers and their families. Channel 21 was represented by several Chaplains. Chaplain John Noel and his wife Lu Ann and their daughter Abby was there. They were representing three ministries, Truckers Friends Network, Good News Distribution and Channel 21. Herb Advocaat and his wife Dee was there representing Truckers Friends Network. Channel 21’s Chaplain Bruce Phelps came in from Haysville Ks. Chaplain Mona Vandyne Beedle flew in from Florida. Chaplains Anthony and Sarah Sauerheber was there as well. Chaplain Gaylon Taylor from Faith on the Move Ministries and Chaplain Gary Rayburn from RIG ministry was also there. Sister Allison drove up from Louisiana, this Sister is on fire for Kingdom work. She has a heart for lost drivers and their families. Truckers Friends Network reserved the booths. We arrived Wednesday the 28th and set up our sections of the booth. We had a total of sixteen warriors manning the booths. We handed out over 2000 Truckers Bibles and over 3000 cd’s. Now folks that is getting the job done for the Kingdom. We were honored and blessed to pray with several drivers and their family members. One driver gave his heart to the Lord there at the booth. There was a lady driver that I prayed with that said she needed a closer walk with God. We prayed and she cried and thanked God we were there for her. Chaplains Mona and Sarah prayed with a lady in a wheel chair. We all walked around the show several times looking for chances to hand out cd’s and share the love of Jesus. It was so cool to see men and woman of God showing the reason for our joy. Many many folks stopped by the booth and thanked us for what we were doing. God is wonderful and His love endures forever!!
We were blessed to have planted hundreds if not thousands of seeds while at the truck show and in Colorado. I am excited to see what God will do with His harvest.
Then the icing on the cake came April 8th and 9th when we were invited to Men on the Mountain men’s retreat in Signal Mountain Tn. Chaplain Richie Turnbo invited the men of God from my church to come worship with the Men of God from his church. There was some awesome fellowship with some strong warriors of God. Friday night the speaker challenged us to never give up on the lost. Jesus can break any grip satan has on any individual as long as they cry out to our Savior. Saturday we attended another Spirit filled service and was told Men of God should be standing up for Holiness and Righteous in our churches and our home.
The past 30 days we have seen an awesome move of God’s Spirit. But none of this would have been witnessed by me or any of our friends and Chaplains if we had not said “Here am I Lord, send me. Is. 6:8.
So I ask you fellow Christian, have you said Here am I?
I want to thank all of the ministries that have came along side of Channel 21 Ministries. I thank our Lord and Savior for putting you in our path. I thank you for your willingness to help out a new ministry. I thank you for pouring yourselves into Channel 21 with your finances, your time and talents. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.
