A Portable Church for Truckers: About Truck Stop Ministries 

Courtesy of Edward Green 


Truck drivers have a tough profession that demands life dedication to hauling freight over the road. Over the road trucking requires drivers to spend weeks on their route until they finally return home. Seasoned truckers know that it takes a special person to continue this profession long term, mainly because of the stresses every driver encounters. Truck drivers face incredible amounts of stress, tribulation, temptation, and loneliness. Due to the long hours away from home, many drivers feel lonely and out of touch with society. Truck stops help drivers recuperate physically, and may also help rejuvenate their psyche. In fact, many drivers develop long-lasting friendships at truck stops.

Over the road trucking can tear families apart. Many drivers become overwhelmed by their loneliness and may succumb to temptation. This preys on the psyche of truckers who try to live a religious life. Over the road trucking makes it difficult to find a permanent and suitable place of worship. Fortunately, truckers can find their place of refuge in a portable church located in one of many truck stops across the nation. Many church organizations sponsor truckstop ministries to ease the hardship of a trucker’s lifestyle. Truckers can find a portable church with a chaplain ready to deliver a sermon at specific times. Truckstop ministries help truckers by connecting them to a positive person who can offer counsel to the many troubles they face while on the road.

A mobile church seeks to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of truck drivers. Other travelers can visit a mobile church while on the road. Due to the sheer amount of semi truck driving vehicles on the roads, many facilities have provided pastoral care to meet the extraordinary needs of those risking their lives to deliver the goods needed to keep the economy afloat. The nation relies on efficient semi truck driving to supply warehouses and other terminals with commodities. Therefore, it remains imperative that truckers can find time to unwind and worship at a nearby mobile church.
