What is Godspeed Ministries…?

In 1998 Godspeed Ministries of Edmond, Inc.,  a tax-exempt, non-profit organization was formed to be the catalyst of provision for Larry and Linda Smiley, Chaplains for Racers For Christ.  (See video below.)

Godspeed was designed for multiple purposes:

  • to provide for the vehicle used to travel to and from the races
  • to provide a place to do ministry at race tracks across America and
  • to fund a growing Car Care Ministry for the greater metro area of Oklahoma City.

Godspeed Car Care Ministry Motto:

“This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit the orphans and widows in their distress…”James 1:27

“Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.”  Psalms 82:3

“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19. Namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.  20.  Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ…  II Corinthians 5:18-19
