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
the words of Jesus in Acts 1:8
2016 was a blessed year for Channel 21 Ministries. We saw many lives changed because of the love of our Savior, Jesus. We were able to travel to several cities and see God move in ways that only He can. In early March, we went to Colorado for a conference that was sponsored by Brother Ken Wolf and Johnsons’ Corner Truck Stop Chapel. Nine folks gave their hearts to the Lord on Friday night, after a wonderful message by Tony McMullen. That Saturday, Pastor Terry Hopkins baptized eight of the nine in the conference room – in the “Jordan River.” The “Jordan River” in this baptism was a huge horse trough that the Chapel supplied. What a blessed time we had in Colorado with Tony Mac, Pastor Terry Hopkins, Jim and Ann Davenport, Gary Rayburn from Rig Ministries, and Joe Arview!
The last weekend of March was the Great American Truck Show in Louisville, KY. We shared a booth with Truckers Friends Network, Faith on the Move Ministries, Good News Distribution, and Rig Ministries. Again, God showed up where His people showed up to be witnesses. We prayed for several folks who were standing in the aisles by our booth. These were people who specifically asked for prayer. We never approached or asked any of them if they needed prayer. God sent these people our way. We were blessed to have been able to lead some men and women to the Lord at this show. This is fruit of the Ministry! Jesus said, “Go and tell the Good News of the Gospel!” And that Gospel goes to truck shows, praise God!
We also joined in partnership with The Truckers’ Prayer Line. The prayer line makes it possible for drivers to call in Monday thru Friday – at 10:00 am and 5:00 pm – for Bible study and fellowship. At 7 pm, listeners can call in to hear special speakers. Drivers can also give testimonies, and request prayers. On every call, drivers have ample time for prayer and fellowship with fellow drivers. Monday nights at 7 pm EST is Channel 21 Ministries’ chance to connect with all of our Chaplains. We have special guest speakers, as well as prayer and testimony time. We are truly blessed to be able to share God’s Word on this prayer line. Now, there is no need for drivers to feel alone out there on the road. Because of prayers going up from the prayer line, we have witnessed several healings and even salvations. So, here’s a special notice: Drivers, please call 1-641-715-3580 access 401080#. You will be glad you did.
On Memorial Day, 2016, we lost a minister-partner, and a great friend of our ministry. Our brother, Tony Mac, went Home to be with the Lord. I was honored and blessed to attend his Home-going service. There were over 2000 folks there to honor God’s special Servant, Brother Tony Mac. Channel 21 was blessed to have Tony and Free-in-Christ Ministries as a partner. There is no way to tell how many hundreds of lives have been changed because of Tony Mac’s faithfulness to Christ, his Savior. Candy Mac and the family are carrying on with the message and the ministry. Please pray for Candy and the family to be encouraged and strengthened in Christ.
Gary Rayburn – with Rig Ministries – has partnered with Pastor Dan Duncan and TV 38, in West Plains, Missouri, to produce a one-hour TV show. The show is called RIG MINISTRIES TV. Gary and his co-host, Joe Arview, interview different ministries with which they have partnered. In December 2016, they produced 13 one-hour episodes of Rig Ministries TV. Channel 21 was one of those one-hour shows. God has provided yet another way to spread the Gospel.
We have been invited to become involved with satellite radio in 2017, doing a daily devotional called JUMP START YOUR DAY, for the drivers. We will be on the Tim Ridley show, Channel 146, on Sirius/XM RADIO. Tim is an awesome man of God. Senior Chaplain, Richie Turnbo, Chaplain Gary Rayburn, and I will be doing a different devotional each morning. We thank God for all of these opportunities, and pray for thousands of lives to be reached for Christ.
Channel 21 looks forward to 2017, as we all know our Lord works in mysterious, exciting ways. If you are a Christian driver, please joinChannel 21 – and all of our ministry partners – in sharing God’s Word in 2017.
Please give us a call anytime at 615-663-3199.
Be blessed and safe out there!
