Church Name: Race Track Chaplaincy of America
Location: New Cumberland, WV
Since 1972, the overall mission of the Race Track Chaplaincy of America (RTCA), through its Councils and Chaplains, is to make disciples of Jesus Christ through teaching, preaching, and ministering to the spiritual, emotional, physical, social, and educational needs of those persons involved in all aspects of the horse racing industry.
The “ideal” Chaplain’s background will consist of the following:
• Baptized believer and follower of Jesus Christ (non-negotiable)
• Spiritually mature (not a new believer)
• Ordained by recognized, accredited evangelical Body of Christ (with credentials)
• Five years’ experience in staff position or key volunteer role of a ministry or church
• Bachelor’s Degree (or higher) from accredited university or college
The Biblical qualifications of a Pastor/Elder can be found throughout scripture, particularly in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
