The Race Track Chaplaincy of America, Pennsylvania Division.
“Sharing God’s Love at The Racetrack”

The Race Track Chaplaincy of America – PA is a religious organization that provides for the needs of the 2000+ backstretch workers who tend the horses, live and work at the Parx Racetrack.  A Chaplain ministers, but in a closed setting.  The setting is the difference.  The ministry – sharing the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed – is the same.

Each week the Chaplain conducts bi-lingual worship services.  The biggest service of the week is on Wednesday Evening.  It is called Chapel n’ Chow because we always share a meal as well as worship.  In the closed setting of the track most of the workers do not have access to the church and community outside of the track so the Chaplain and the Chaplaincy are the one access to worship, discipleship, and fellowship.

The Chaplain facilitates a food pantry, health services, transportation, educational opportunities, counseling, Bible studies, daily devotions, devotional material, clothing, bedding, and much more.  The Chaplaincy provides everything a vital Christian community provides with the help of dozens of volunteers……..
