Their Mission Statement:
Truckstop Ministries, Inc. seeks to partner with local churches in identifying and equipping those called to this ministry, according to His purpose, operating within the parameters and guidelines set forth by the Executive Board of TMI.
TMI would like to be considered a spiritual refuge for Truckers and others in all of our locations.
While they do have a number of supporters -- corporate & otherwise -- who are in the trucking industry, they receive a lot of our financial support from Truckers. About 67% of their donations are from Drivers, with the rest coming from trucking companies, churches, and individuals. More importantly, they have supporters who share Truckstop Ministries' vision to reach all Truck Drivers.
Through a long-term commitment to this mission, TMI is known as a ministry that provides guidance, services and facilities to Truckers seeking the word of God.
TMI ministers to the trucking industry and their families by utilizing the following tools:
Missionary Driver Program
Bible Study Correspondence Courses
24-Hour Trucker Prayer Line
Tracts and other printed material
